Qatar meets Argentina in a Copa America game from Group B of the competition. This match is going to be played at the Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre. Let’s take a look at it in our winning soccer predictions.
The situation is very tricky for both teams, because both teams have won just one point since the beginning of the tournament. They need wins in order to keep their chances of progression.
Qatar won a point in their first game in the group, doing a 2-2 draw against Paraguay. Things went wrong in their second game, when they got beaten with 0-1 by Colombia. The Maroons were actually very close to winning a second point, because it was a 0-0 draw until the 86th minute. This is when Colombia scored a winner, thanks to Daniel Zapata. But these two games prove that Qatar are not a team which is easy to beat.
For Argentina the tournament so far is one big mess. After being beaten by Colombia in their opening game, Albiceleste only won a point against Paraguay in the second match. The team’s captain Lionel Messi scored a penalty kick, but it was not enough for a win.
Argentina are aware that only a win against Qatar will keep their chances of reaching the knockout phase alive. Lionel Messi is still looking for his first trophy with the national team, but so far this looks like another very dificult tournament for him and his teammates. Clearly Argentina are far away from their best years at this moment.
Before the game Lionel Messi promised that Argentina are going to beat Qatar. But it won’t be an easy task. During the first two rounds Qatar proved that they are a tough team.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Copa America clash between Qatar and Argentina on Sunday night. We wish you good luck.
