Argentina vs Uruguay, Copa America 2021: Live blog, goals, highlights, updates

Lionel Messi and Sergio Agüero face off against Luis Suárez and Ronald Araujo in a giant group stage match

Argentina v Chile: Group A - Copa America Brazil 2021

It’s time for Argentina’s second match in the Copa América group stage! Lionel Messi, Sergio Agüero and the Albiceleste face their toughest test in Group B as they take on Luis Suárez, Edinson Cavani and Ronald Araujo’s Uruguay in Brasília.

Argentina’s draw against Chile means they can’t afford to lose this one. They will probably qualify even if they lose as four out of the five teams in the group will advance, but finishing fourth in Group B probably means a quaterfinal date with Brazil, who looked unstoppable in their opening two games. Uruguay make their debut in the competition looking to start things off with a big win against their longtime rivals.

It’s Albiceleste versus Celeste, Messi versus Suárez, and this is going to be fun. Let’s go!
