Sao Paulo, Brazil
Chile +250 / Argentina -125 / Draw +250
Argentina will play against Chile at the 2019 Copa America as both teams compete for 3rd place.
Chile were beaten by Peru in their previous match. It was a poor display by Chile as they controlled 64% of the ball but conceded 3 goals. Chile produced more scoring chances than Peru but the team were not good at finishing. Players like Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sanchez were not effective and that ended up being costly for the team.
Chile have exceeded expectations in this tournament since not many expected much from this team. Sanchez has found some good form he has led this team well. Chile’s big win in this tournament was against Colombia in the quarterfinals.
On the other side of the field, Argentina suffered a heart-breaking defeat in the semifinals as they were beaten by Brazil. It was a 2-0 defeat where Argentina were very competitive but failed to convert their chances. Leo Messi and Sergio Aguero failed to score goals and that has been a constant problem with this team. Argentina had 14 shots during the match but only 2 shots were on target.
Overall, it has been a poor tournament for Argentina as they failed to beat teams like Colombia and Paraguay in the group stage. Argentina were fortunate to make it through the group stage with key players like Messi, Di Maria and Aguero failing to make an impact.
Argentina looked demoralized following the loss to Brazil and it will be tough for the team to bounce back in this match.
This match between Chile and Argentina is set to be played at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo.
Taking everything in this match, I am going to pick Chile to win this match. Argentina have not been playing well in this tournament and the team looked shattered following the defeat to Brazil. Chile, on the other hand, have been playing better football throughout this tournament and will be happier with their performance in this tournament. Chile look in better form and I see them being good enough to defeat Argentina in this match.
