A goal from Guido Rodríguez was enough for Argentina to beat Uruguay 1-0 this Friday at the Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia on the second day of group A of the America Cup. In the 32nd match between these teams in the tournament, the Albiceleste won their fifteenth victory against their rival in the Río de La Plata classic, which has not defeated Argentina since 1989 and debuted this Friday in this edition.

Argentina took the lead in the 13th minute through the Spanish Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodríguez, who finished off with a strong header a brilliant cross from Lionel messi.

In the 27th minute, Edinson Cavani fell in the area after receiving a foul from Rodríguez. The Charruas complained to the Brazilian referee Wilson Sampaio, but there was not even a VAR review and the referee continued the game.

With victory, Argentina accumulates 4 points and leads the ranking, followed by Chile with the same score, Paraguay with 3 and Uruguay and Bolivia without points. The third day of the zone will be played on Monday, June 21 with the Uruguay-Chile and Argentina-Paraguay matches. Bolivia will rest.
