Today’s Best Copa America Bet: Sunday, June 23


Leigh Copson: Back Lionel Messi to score first & Argentina to beat Qatar @ 13/8 bet365
* Odds correct at 08:29 BST on 20/6/2019

It is ‘win or bust’ for Argentina when they wrap up their Copa America group campaign on Sunday night. Lionel Scaloni’s side made a nightmare start to the competition as they failed to turn possession into goals and were punished with a 2-0 defeat to Colombia, and things did not get much better when they took on Paraguay in midweek. The Argentinians desperately needed a victory to kick-start their campaign but they instead had to rely on a second-half penalty from Lionel Messi just to earn a share of the spoils.

That 1-1 draw means they are rock-bottom of the group heading into their final fixture in this stage, and if they do not win the match they will be going home early! So can Argentina avoid defeat when they face Qatar? On paper this looks like it should be a routine win for the South American nation, but the Qatari national team have been showing signs of improvement and while they are without a win so far, they have equipped themselves well in the Copa America. They fought back to earn a 2-2 draw against Paraguay in their maiden outing and then frustrated Colombia for 86 minutes before finally falling to a 1-0 defeat.

So as you can see they are no pushovers, but can we really expect them to add to Argentina’s problems here? I do not see that happening. The Argentinians have seriously underwhelmed so far, but this is still a squad that is loaded with talent and they still boast the services of one of the greatest players the game has ever seen in Messi. So many times we have seen him come to Barcelona and Argentina’s rescue when they have needed him the most and I would not be remotely surprised to see him do the same again on Sunday, setting Argentina on their way to victory in what is a must-win game for them.
