Watch Argentina vs. Uruguay live stream free in more action from Estadio La Portada de La Serena, La Serena, Chile as Group B continues to determine who will move forward.
This is a bitter regional rivalry that goes back decades and both sides are more than ready to face-off at the 2015 Copa America. Historically, Argentina has the upper hand, having defeated Uruguay in the last three tournaments during the groups phase.
Argentina, with Lionel Messi as their leader, has won four of their last five games against Uruguay. However, their only loss came during the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
When you watch Argentina vs. Uruguay live stream you will see which team will add to its many Copa America titles. These are the two winningest teams in the history of the tournament with 29 trophies between them. Uruguay has 15 titles and Argentina is hot on their heels with 14 and you can bet La Albiceleste is going for that win.
Interestingly, Argentina and Uruguay have won all the Copa Americas held in Chile. Uruguay took the title twice and Argentina has won four times.
As with any other match in which Messi is on the pitch, Uruguay’s biggest task will be to stop the striker from getting open. Uruguay’s captain, defender Diego Godín is fully aware of this challenge and talked about how La Celeste plans to stop one of the best players in the world.
“There is no formula to stop Messi, otherwise someone would have already achieved it. There is no single recipe, it’s a team effort. We must do it together, because if not it’s impossible that he won’t hurt us.”
Watch Argentina vs. Uruguay live stream to see if Argentina can put behind that disappointing and surprising opening draw against Paraguay, another bitter rival. Argentinian defender Facundo Roncaglia expects Argentina will bounce back.
“If Uruguay tries to match us and we are stopping them well at the back, they will be left unprotected and we know that (Lionel) Messi and (Ángel) Di María and the striker that the coach chooses will always make a difference.”
One thing viewers can expect with this match is lots of excitement as is usually the case when these two teams meet. Messi is still upset about losing the World Cup final in Brazil and is more than motivated to take another Copa America.
