Venezuela vs Argentina Match Preview
Argentina have seen harsh criticism early in their Copa America campaign but still made the top 2 cut with a win over Qatar (2-0), where Lautaro Martínez found an early opener and Sergio Aguero doubled the lead very late in the match. They now meet Venezuela for their Quarter-finals clash hoping to build on such a pick-me-up but could be in for a tough quest.
Albiceleste have seen a comfortable 0-2 loss to Colombia and just a 1-1 draw against Paraguay in two games beforehand, which obviously has many worrying side led by Leo Messi is in for another short spell in Brazil. They’ve been far from impressive and there’s obviously a lot Leo Scaloni has to work on.
Venezuela have proven themselves a tough nut to crack and will surely be the same on the day, after holding Peru and Brazil to goalless draws in their first two outings and beating Bolivia (1-3) with goals from Darwin Machis and Josef Martinez.
La Vinotinto have thus extended a very solid streak of recent and now have ground to build on, including a 1-3 friendly win over Argentina earlier this year – as they keep showing off as a tough nut for Argentina to crack over and over again lately with two draws and a win earned in the last three head-to-head clashes.
We’ll now stick with Venezuela to do so once again and we’ll go for an enticing Double Chance – where backing Venezuela to win or Draw feels like great value at 7/5 with William Hill as Argentina struggle to impress and saw odds to lift the trophy drifting already.
We do expect another narrow contest with few goals, though, and La Vinotinto’s ability to keep it together at the back will surely play a great factor how the contest untangles. We’ll thus also stick our necks out for a low-scoring clash with Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 4/5 with bet365.
