Football Prediction of the Day Argentine vs Ecuador
Equatorial managed only one victory on the hosts’ field in 2015, achieving a historic victory with the score of 2-0. Even if Aguero, the Manchester City striker, is missing, Argentina can still rely on an exceptional attack. Argentine superstar Lionel Messi will definitely try to win the match, to take his national team to the 2022 World Championship, most likely the last World Cup of his career. Although international matches are famous for the lack of goals, this match will most likely be an exception.
Both teams have fast strikers with coaches who know how to value them. With players like Messi and Gomez on the field we can expect many chances to score, most likely the two players will make a difference in this confrontation.
Bet Tips:1 & 2 + (Host team wins and there will be at least two goals in the match)
