Argentina vs Chile Preview, Possible Lineups & Predictions

Let us predict and analyze the match between Argentina vs Chile in the third-place match of 2019 Copa America.

For Argentina, the third-place match in the 2019 Copa America is not a match-up game. Lionel Messi and his teammates want to defeat Chile, just to claim the losing trophy on the opponent's hand three years ago, to help ease the sadness of the home fans. Tango in the Copa America this year, therefore, is still burning.

Usually, the third match in Copa America doesn't make much sense. Especially with Argentina football, the team has not sent the strongest team to participate in this tournament. But tonight's match is an exception. After disillusioning with the finals, teachers and coaches Lionel Scaloni are determined to defeat Chile to help the fans to ease their sadness.

The country team Tango has the reason to win the match tonight, when their opponent is Chile. The Argentinians haven't forgotten the pain of the Copa America last time. It was the tournament that took place in the United States in 2016. In the final, Argentina lost to Chile in the penalty shootout, after two draws in a tie for 120 minutes.

Remembering after Argentina lost the 2016 Copa America championship to Chile, Lionel Messi was criticized by his fans. Overwhelmed, the star who is wearing the Barcelona club at that time announced his farewell to the national team. But thanks to the encouragement of teammates as well as from many true football fans in the country of Tango, Messi changed the decision.

In the Copa America 2019, Messi once again shows the ungainly with national titles. Overall, he had a rather disappointing tournament in Brazil. But Messi doesn't fall. He said this time there will be no announcement of parting with the national team. He insisted that he would do his best to play against Chile, the first was to claim the debt 3 years ago, the second was to comfort the home fans.

To be fair, Argentina in this tournament is not so bad. Their gameplay is less dependent on Messi. They are more proactive in conquering the middle zone, creating a premise for attacks. In particular, in the 2019 Copa America, local team Tango is showing great stars like striker Lautaro Martinez, midfielder Rodrigo De Paul or midfielder Juan Foyth ... Besides, veteran players, typically Sergio Aguero still have a stable performance.

With the determination to defeat Chile, coach Scaloni is likely to let Argentina take the initiative in attacking, playing with a starting lineup of three strikers, Sergio Aguero, Paulo Dybala and Lionel Messi. Once you don't suffer too much pressure in a match like a third-class match, it's more likely that this "trio" will flourish to help Argentina repel the Chileans.

Although arriving at the third place match, Chile played in the Copa Amercia 2019 not really convincingly. Before being battered by Peru 3 goals in the semifinals, they also had to wait for the chance shootout to overcome Colombia in the quarterfinals (after 2 teams drew 0-0 during the official time) . With that performance, especially when the pillars all show signs of age, it will be very difficult for Chile to create surprise at the Tango team.

Most likely, Argentina will have a strong victory against Chile in the third place match!

Match squad information:

Argentina: Full force. Dybala and Di Maria can play the main stone.

Chile: Fuenzalida is mildly hurt and not sure to play.
