Will 2021 finally be Argentina’s year?

On Monday night, la Albiceleste kicked off their Copa América campaign in Rio de Janeiro against their recent nemesis Chile.

They were in front after just half an hour when a trademark Lionel Messi free-kick beat his former Barça teammate Claudio Bravo.

However, just after half time, Chile were awarded a penalty; Nicolás Tagliafico penalised for a foul.

Emi Martínez made a superb save from the spot-kick, tipping Arturo Vidal’s effort onto the bar, but, unfortunately for Argentina, Eduardo Vargas headed home the rebound.

1-1 it finished at Estádio Olímpico Nilton Santos; a decent start for both nations.

Given that the top four in each five-team group advance, and that Bolivia are in Group A, Argentina are not in danger of group stage elimination.

What will define Copa América for Lionel Scaloni’s side is the knockout phase, starting in July.

Argentina reached the semi-finals of the Copa two summers ago, losing 2-0 to eventual winners Brazil in Belo Horizonte.

This means Argentina’s last major title remains the Copa América they won way back in 1993.

Since then, they’ve lost in the final of this competition in 2004, 2007, 2015 and 2016, the Confederations Cup Finals of 1995 and 2005 and the World Cup Final itself in 2016.

Thus, 33 year old Lionel Messi is running out of opportunities to win some major international silverware for the very first time.

Will Argentina continue their positive start to this Copa with a victory in Brasília?

Will Uruguay start with three points?

As for Uruguay, given that there’s five teams per group, this is their first fixture of the 2021 Copa América.

Two summers ago, Óscar Washington Tabárez’s side cruised through the group stages but then crashed out of this competition in the quarter-finals, losing to Peru on penalties.

However, unlike their opponents in this game, Uruguay have won a major trophy this century.

Back in 2011, in Argentina, Uruguay won their 15th Copa América, beating Paraguay 3-0 at El Monumental.

Luis Suárez, who scored in that final, is one of six players still in the squad today.

Fernando Muslera, Diego Godín, Sebastián Coates, Martín Cáceres and Edinson Cavani the others.

Since though, they haven’t won a knockout game at this competition but are amongst the favourites to lift the trophy next month.

Will Uruguay claim a statement victory over their historic rivals at Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha?

Prediction: Argentina 1-1 Uruguay

Argentina have fond memories of playing at Mané Garrincha, beating Belgium in the World Cup quarter-finals at this venue seven years ago.

Lionel Messi has now scored 73 international goals, including five against Uruguay.

Luis Suárez meanwhile has scored twice against Argentina.

These two last met at Copa América in the 2015 group stages with Argentina winning 1-0 at Estadio La Portada, Sergio Agüero scoring.
