Best free stream

Watch the Argentina vs Ecuador live stream to see the Copa America 2024's Group A winners face the runners-up from Group B today. It's the first quarter-final of competition, and there'll be an enormous elephant in the middle of the pitch at NRG Stadium.

Lionel Messi has looked well off the pace, so much so that he failed to score in the group stage for the very first time in this competition, and La Albiceleste were far more fluid when he sat out their most recent game. In stepped Alejandro Garnacho and, unbound from Messi's gravitational pull, Lautaro Martínez found the net twice to become the tournament's runaway top scorer. Surely coach Lionel Scaloni won't bench his megastar?

Following Ecuador through Copa America, meanwhile, has been a white-knuckle ride. La Tri's games have featured a brutal early red card, as spectacular an own goal as you're ever likely to see, and last-gasp penalty drama – and only a single goal took them through at Mexico's expense. Could they eliminate another of the competition's big beasts?
