    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Bullshit. We lost titles with Tata, Pep and Lucho.

    Sampaoli is far too nervous and emotional to coach a club like Barca, he woulndt last long.

    The fact that Argentina are doing better than in a long time speaks volume.

    That said...yeah his team selection is dodgy right now, however it does take some time to get it right. Despite that, you expect professional footballers to score those. We're complaining about Benedetto the bum when Higuain, Aguero, Tévez missed on similar huge chances in the pas.

    I looked at it and Ecuador have lost against Colombia and Brazil at home. So it's certainly not Bolivia level of dominance at home it seems.

    Now I don't know if Ecuador hates Argentina or another country that they would want to mess up their chances despite already being eliminated.

    Peru won in Quito as well. Argentina can definitely win there but I think historically and lately the altitude environment hasn’t been kind to them.

    Yes, Ecuador does not hate them but knocking out one of the South American giants out of the WC would give them satisfaction.

    The problem isn't the fixture. The problem is Argentina's shape.

    They seem to dislike Peru given they've been in war with them a couple of times. At peace now, but not best friends.

    If money is coming from anywhere it will be to throw the game.

    Argies are heavy favourites to beat Ecuador at 1.40 with bookies.

    I would.

    Anything below 1.50 is heavy favourite in my book.
