Value bets analysis for soccer games

The Copa America holders Argentina face Ecuador in Houston in a game from the 1/4-finals of the competition. Lionel Messi’s team will try to reach Top 4, but they have a good test ahead of them. Let’s preview this fixture in our Value bets analysis for soccer games.


Argentina did well in the group stage where they achieved three wins from three games played. In the last one Los Albiceleste achieved a 2-0 victory over Peru as Lautaro Martinez scored a brace. The super star Lionel Messi didn’t play in this game because of an injury. It remains to be seen if Messi is going to be fit to play in the 1/4-finals as well.


Lautaro Martinez is having a blast at Copa America this year. Inter Milan’s striker has four goals scored in three matches. It seems that Lautaro is pretty serious about becoming a key player for Argentina’s national team. Let’s see how he will continue at the Copa.


Meanwhile Ecuador reached the 1/4-finals after one win, one draw and one loss in the group stage. In their last game they faced Mexico, but managed to secure a point after a 0-0 draw.


Ecuador are not doing well against Argentina lately. Their last win against the current world champion came in 2015. Now the Ecuadorians will rely on their forwards Jeremy Sarmiento, Kendry Paez and Alan Minda in order to hurt Lionel Scaloni’s team.


If Lionel Messi doesn’t play against Ecuador, Lionel Scaloni has some options to replace him. Alejandro Garnacho did it against Peru, but now the manager could pick Nicolas Gonzalez, too. But most likely he would bring Julian Alvarez back in the line-up. Manchester City’s striker was rested against Peru.


That’s the Value bets analysis for soccer games for the upcoming Copa America clash between Argentina and Ecuador. Good luck!
