Argentina looking for a good start
Argentina were supposed to be the co-hosts with Colombia of the Copa America but the competition was moved to Brazil and that could be a key setback for Argentina’s quest to win a major trophy for the first time since 1993. They lost four finals since that date including two against Chile both on penalties.
Having lost the World Cup final at this venue against Germany in 2014, the Albiceleste will hope to do better in their opening match in Copa America as they have won one of their openers in the Copa in their last four matches and that was against Chile. Argentina are unbeaten since 2019 and that could be a great confidence booster for Lionel Messi and his teammates.
Key Stats for Argentina
- Argentina have scored in all of their last five matches
- In seven of the last ten Argentina matches, both teams scored
- Argentina have conceded in four of their last five games
The last chance for Chile’s golden generation of players to shine
The change of the venue of the Copa America may not be good news for Chile as they have not been able to progress from the group stage in four of the five times the competition was held in Brazil. Chile’s current golden generation who have won two of the last three Copa’s will be keen to have a memorable tournament as this can be the last one for many of them.
Chile are known for their high-intensity style of play with high pressure defensively on their opponents. This style was adopted by coaches Marcelo Bielsa and Jorge Sampaoli. But it will be interesting to see whether new coach Martin Lasarte will play with that same style after all of those players have aged and he has ten players over the age of 30 in his 28-man squad.
Key Stats for Chile
- Chile have won four of their last five Copa America openers scoring 2+ goals each time
- 80% of Chile’s last ten matches saw both teams score
- Chile had clean sheets in just two of their last eight matches
Argentina vs Chile Prediction
In the 2022 World Cup qualifiers over a week ago, Argentina and Chile drew 1-1. Even though this is a different competition, we think the same scenario of that match will be seen in this one.
In that match, Argentina were the better team and had much more chances with 16 goal attempts and 54% of the ball possession.
As we have seen in the stats, both of these teams have been scoring in their recent matches and we expect another game in which both of them will create many chances to score.
