Argentina vs Uruguay build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Despite taking the lead thanks to a superb Lionel Messi free-kick, Argentina couldn’t get over the line against Chile, with Eduardo Vargas pegging them back after the break to force a 1-1 draw. Though they’ve won Copa America 14 times, Argentina have famously failed to lift this trophy since 1993, but a win here against the record 15-time champions will certainly give them a strong platform to build their latest challenge.

Uruguay head into this match on a lacklustre run of form, winning just one of their last five outings (all in World Cup qualifying) and failing to find the net in their previous three games. But in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, La Celeste have enough firepower to go all the way in this tournament and will prove a worthy adversary for Argentina.

  • Argentina (vs Chile): D. Martinez; Montiel, Lucas Martinez, Otamendia, Otamendia, Tagliafico; De Paul, Paredes, Lo Celso; Messi, Lautaro Martinez, Gonzalez.
  • Uruguay (vs Venezuela): Muslera; Gonzalez, Gimenez, Godin, Caceres; Torreira; Torres, Vecino, Valverde, Rodriguez; Suarez.

Neither side picked up any fresh injuries or suspensions in their last fixtures. Uruguay will be boosted by the return of Edinson Cavani following suspension.

Players to watch:

  • Argentina: Though he often appears superhuman, Lionel Messi cannot do it all himself. He needs help. Coming into the Copa America off the back of a 17-goal Serie A season, with 11 strikes in 24 international caps so far, Lautaro Martinez is the man best-placed to provide that assistance. Martinez’s partnership with Romelu Lukaku was vital to Inter winning the title last season, with his pressing and link-up play complimenting the Belgian perfectly. And it’s those attributes Martinez needs to bring here to allow Messi to get to work on that stubborn Uruguayan defence.
  • Uruguay: With no goals in their last three games, Uruguay will be overjoyed to have Edinson Cavani available once again. The 34-year-old proved that age is just a number with 17 goals across all competitions for Man Utd last season, with his unique blend of physicality and ruthlessness causing the opposition no end of trouble. Cavani is tied on 118 caps with Suarez, with the former scoring 51 goals and the latter 63 during that time. It’s a formidable strike partnership, even as they advance into their thirties. Cavani’s return changes the whole complexion of this Uruguay side, while enhancing everything good about Suarez.
