Qatar News and Form

Qatar have done alright so far at the Copa America. It was a 2-2 draw that they picked up in their opener against Paraguay. Qatar were 2-0 down in that game as well. They also almost got a point against the much tougher Colombia in their second game. But they can unstuck just four minutes from time to lose 1-0. Next up for Qatar is the challenge of Argentina with the winner of this fixture having a chance at second place. If Paraguay don’t win their final group stage game, the winner of this game will move above them into second. If this is a draw, Qatar will finish third above Argentina.

Argentina To Win Both Halves


Qatar have now failed to win three games (D1 L2) since the end of their successful Asian Cup campaign this year. They have not taken a  clean sheet in any of their last four and it’s not too surprising really that they have faced tougher challenges at the Copa America than in the AFC Asian Cup. Now the question is, can they stop Argentina from winning this game? If it is a draw Qatar would be swearing on finishing as one of the best third-placed teams unless Paraguay were to lose heavily against Colombia. So a draw could be enough for them. It’s going to be a great finale.

Argentina News and Form

Well, Argentina will never have expected to find themselves in this position. They are bottom of Group B with a game to play. That is because they lost their opening game 2-0 against Colombia, despite controlling most of the game. They could only follow that up with a 1-1 draw against Paraguay, Argentina getting their equaliser in the game from a Lionel Messi penalty kick. The Albiceleste dodged a bullet following that as Paraguay missed a penalty. So Argentina have to win this game to have any kind of a chance of making into the next round of competition.

They will be still heavily backed to pull it off. Argentina have taken a W2 D1 L2 record in their last five games now and so it hasn’t been the greatest of form from them. They did not look good at all in their draw against Paraguay, they didn’t create much of a threat. That was against a Paraguay side who really didn’t have any pre-tournament form. For all that attacking talent that Argentina have, they have scored more than one goal in just one of their last five games now. They have just the one clean sheet in five as well. The pressure is on. Them to deliver.

Qatar v Argentina Predictions

Argentina to win: We just can’t see a situation where Argentina fail to come up with something in this one. They will be feeling the pressure and they were really poor against Paraguay, particularly in the final third of the pitch. A narrow win for them is likely, but will it be enough for a top-two finish?
