La Albiceleste’s final friendly before facing Canada at Copa America.

Argentina take on Guatemala in their final friendly game in preparation for the upcoming Copa America. After winning the Copa America in 2021, La Albiceleste are looking to lift the title for the second time in a row and the 16th time in their history.

Led by Lionel Messi once more, they are one of the firm favourites to do so. Lionel Scaloni’s team will begin their 2024 Copa America campaign against Canada on June 21, while they will also take on Chile and Peru later in the group.

Guatemala have a tough challenge as they face-off against the world champions. They are coming into this game after defeating the British Virgin Islands 3-0. The Blue and Whites have faced Argentina on three previous occasions, with a goalless draw occurring in their first meeting in January 1990.

Argentina have won the last two, 4-0 and 3-0 in June 2013 and September 2018 respectively. Los Chapines do have some good players in the team, still, it will be a big achievement if they get anything positive from this match.

Player to Watch

Giovani Lo Celso (Argentina)

Giovani Lo Celso is a versatile player with brilliant attacking qualities who can play in any central midfield role. The player is an engine to midfield, both with and without the ball. He consistently provides a passing option and has the intelligence to vary his game in response to opposing defenders.

He also has the valuable ability to exploit spaces between the lines. Lo Celso’s presence in the midfield will bring stability to the Argentina team.

Rubio Rubin (Guatemala)

Rubio Rubin isn’t going to be the fastest or the strongest out there on the pitch, but he makes up for it with his hard work. His work-ethic is the strongest suit in his game.

Rubin is great at making in-behind runs and is a threat from inside the box. He is capable of beating his opponents with his dribbling. He is a confident player who can make a difference on the pitch.
