Colombia vs Argentina Football Betting Tips
Colombia’s squad is currently deadlocked this is related to the successor of José Néstor Pekerman, a coach who has been in charge of the first team since 2012 and who recently left, being strongly associated by the South American press to run Argentina shortly.
In any case, it is Arturo Reyes, who has been coaching the U21 team since July, who is currently in charge and who made his debut in Florida last weekend against Venezuela.
The Colombians managed to win with great difficulty, 2-1, went down to lose early, with Machís’s goal in the 4 minutes, failed to equalize in the first half, was Falcao in the 55th minute to make the 1-1 and Chará, extreme of Atletico Mineiro, to score the goal of triumph already in the 90 ‘.
In the starting lineup, Reyes did not make much of a move on what had been Pekerman’s first team, but only made Cristian Borja and William Tesillo, two elements of the defensive sector.
Argentina is in the same situation as it is currently led by the caretaker Lionel Scaloni, assisted by our well-known Pablo Aimar.
This following the departure of Jorge Sampaoli, after all the controversy that involved the former coach of Sevilla and Chile throughout the participation of the albiceleste in the World Cup 2018, where he left in the round of 16, eliminated by France, after having to sweat a lot to guarantee the qualification against Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.
The return to the competition took place last weekend, with Scaloni’s Argentina winning 3-0 at Guatemala in a game on American soil in Los Angeles.
Without some of the key figures in recent years, the Argentines built the win in the last 20 minutes of the first half, with goals from ‘Piti’ Martínez, penalty, Giovanni Lo Celso (outside the young man from Bétis, on loan from PSG) and Giovanni Simeone (son of ‘El Cholo’).
Football Prediction Colombia vs Argentina
I expect a very tough game from both sides, with both teams looking to give the best sequence to what they achieved in the post-World Cup 2018.
Both will not have on the bench the coach who will guide them in the next Copa America 2019. Although winning is ideal, I expect some respect from Reyes and Scaloni and I do not believe it is a game played at a frenetic pace.
I believe in some occasions of goals, until I believe that both reach the goal, however if the first delay to appear I believe that the selectors will prefer to maintain the tie than to properly risk everything to be winners.
In this way, I believe that either in the whistle for the interval or in the end we will have the placard to register an equality.
