Argentina Vs Chile: The Sportsrush brings you predicted lineups and head to head figures between Argentina and Chile before the 3rd place tie.
Chile faced a huge setback after losing to Peru in the 2nd semi-final of the Copa America by 3-0, thus, the defending champions are now set to face Argentina in the 3rd place tie on saturday night.
On the other hand, Argentina also struggled to remain in the competition and were punished by their fiercest rivals Brazil for the poor form, after they conceded two goals to see themselves out of the tournament.
It is very unusual sight for both the sides, as Argentina are used to be one of the finalists in every Copa America tournament, and Chile have tasted success in the recent editions.
In recent encounters Chile have dominated Argentina and that would probably affect the Argentine contingent, especially in this underwhelming form during this campaign.
However, the only difference between the two sides is Lionel Messi, but the Barcelona sensation has been underwhelming throughout the Copa America, although Messi can pull out his magic on his worst days too.
Furthermore, with such a humiliating defeat from Peru, the Chileans might enter the arena low in confidence, which could give an advantage to their rivals.
Hence, We shall look at the injury news, head-to-head statistics, and predicted eleven for Argentina’s clash against Chile.
Head to Head
Argentina have dominated Chile in the most part of their shared history, but Argentina are still living the horrors of previous Copa Americas, where they were prevented by Chile to win a silverware after years of drought.
