(EFE) – A goal by Guido Rodríguez reached Argentina to beat Uruguay 1-0 this Friday at the Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia for the second day of Group A of the Copa América.
In the 32nd match between these teams in the tournament, the Albiceleste won their fifteenth victory in the Río de La Plata classic against a Uruguay that has not defeated Argentina since 1989 and debuted this Friday in the tournament.
Argentina took the lead in the 13th minute through Betis midfielder Guido Rodríguez, who finished off a brilliant cross from Lionel Messi with a strong header.
At 27 minutes, Edinson Cavani fell in the area after receiving an alleged foul from Rodríguez. The Celestes complained to the Brazilian referee Wilson Sampaio, but there was not even a VAR review and the game continued.
With the victory, Argentina accumulates 4 points and leads the ranking, followed by Chile with the same number of points, Paraguay with 3 and Uruguay and Bolivia without units.
The third day of the zone will be played on Monday June 21 with the matches between Uruguay-Chile and Argentina-Paraguay. Bolivia will have a free date.
