Bolivia switch gears and catch Argentina on possession.

Bolivia 1-3 Argentina.

06:48 (IST)29 JUN 2021

59' Messi tries to pick a number of Argentine shirts inside the Bolivia box but all he does is deliver is straight to Carlos Lampe at the Bolivia goal. The cross was way too close to the goal.

06:40 (IST)29 JUN 2021

51' Aguero finds Messi with a through ball. Messi tries to chip it over Lampe but the ball strikes Lampe's face. Messi was eventually flagged offside for an early run and the goal would not have counted anyway.

06:39 (IST)29 JUN 2021

49' Messi finds Acuna with a wide ball but Bejarano makes a timely interception. It has been a routine move for Messi at Barcelona and Argentina. He attracts the defenders away and tries to lob the ball to the left side for the left winger.

06:37 (IST)29 JUN 2021

48' Argentina seems to be continuing from where they left in the first-half. They have majority of the possession and carving up the Bolivian defence with ease.

Second-half kicks-off.

06:21 (IST)29 JUN 2021

06:18 (IST)29 JUN 2021

HALF TIME: Bolivia 0-3 Argentina.

 A dominating display from the La Albicilieste sees them lead 3-0 at the break. It could have been more goals as well if not for the misses from Aguero in the final third of the first half. The Bolivians had two half-chances from outside the box but nothing worth considering when it comes to the possibility of finding the back of the net. It has been all Argentina so far. Lots to think about for Cesar Farias at the break. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the next 45 minutes.

06:17 (IST)29 JUN 2021

Additional TIme: 1 Minute.

06:17 (IST)29 JUN 2021

45' WIDE AGAIN! Similar passage of play from Argentina. Aguero gets played onside by the Bolivian defence and is caught in two minds. He had Alejandro Gomez on the far side but he goes for the goal from a narrow angle and misses the target yet again.

06:15 (IST)29 JUN 2021

44' WIDE! Sergio Aguero gets a brilliant pass played out by Acuna and shoots it wide across the face of the goal.

06:13 (IST)29 JUN 2021

42' GOAAAAAAAAAAL! Lionel Messi (Argentina)

Sergio Aguero finds Lionel Messi with a pin-point lobbed ball over the Bolivian defence. Messi goes past his marker Luis Haquin and chips it with ease over Carlos Lampe who was stuck in no man's land. Argentina up 3-0.

06:09 (IST)29 JUN 2021

40' SAVE! Jeyson Chura tries his luck from way out and the ball swirls in the air and forces Franco Armani to make a diving save to his right to ensure the ball is out of the Argentine net. Close.

06:08 (IST)29 JUN 2021

39' Messi looks to link up with Correa inside the congested Bolivia box but the pass towards Correa is a little too quick for his liking and it runs out to the safe hands of Carlos Lampe at goal.

06:07 (IST)29 JUN 2021

38' A low delivery from Messi towards Aguero is intercepted by Adrian Jusino.

06:06 (IST)29 JUN 2021

06:05 (IST)29 JUN 2021

34' SAVE! Diego Bejarano swings in a corner from the left corner of Argentina's half and the header is flicked on the Argentina goal straight to the hands of Franco Armani.

06:03 (IST)29 JUN 2021

33' GOAAAAAAAL! Lionel Messi. (Argentina)

Messi drives it low and hard from the spot in the right side of the Bolivian goal as Carlos Lampe is rooted to his spot. Messi gets his 11th goal in the Copa America and 74th international goal as Argentina take a comfortable 2-0 lead at the half hour mark.
