Chile are the titleholders after they won previous championship that took place at their home. However, it’s hard to expect them to keep the title this season as Jorje Sampaioli, the coach who led the team to the triumph, left the team. On top of that, last Copa America was played in Chile and it gave the team advantage that they don’t have now. The team show quite poor results recently, recording four defeats in their last five matches in all competitions. In 2016 Chile played 4 matches and have beaten Venezuela 4-1, and lost to Argentina 1-2, Jamaica 1-2 and Mexico 0-1.
The opponents have long history of head-to-heads and Albiceleste have advantage in them. Argentina always aim for the title regardless of tournament and they have to confirm their ambitions with a victory in upcoming matchday against struggling Chile.
Prediction for the match: Argentina to win.
