Argentina and Chile will go head to head on Saturday for a third place finish in Copa America 2019 as the tournament comes to a close. La Albiceleste go into this game as the favourites.

Kick-off : 4:00 PM (Local)

Venue : Corinthians Arena, Sao Paulo

Argentina after a disappointing campaign will now look to finish the tournament on a winning note as they eye a third place in Copa America 2019. They will look to play their brand of football.

La Albiceleste suffered a couple of losses in the tournament which caused their demise. The second one Brazil will be more painful as Leo Messi fancied this time around to win the title.

Brazil loss should be taken as a learning lesson and moving forward is the right way. All now to the Chile game who are a strong side and caused Argentina problems previously.

Defensive solidity is needed as is a bit of a flair in the final third.

On the other hand, Chile have had a fine campaign until the Peru game and they will be disappointed and will be looking to take on Argentina in the third place match to salvage the pride.

Chile know Argentina are a top class side but they have got the better of them in the past and same needs to be done. They can do what they aim for with a better team display having a good defence stopping Argentina’s best with attackers threatening the goal.

Chile have quality players who can be dangerous on their day and Chile will hope it’s their day.

Argentina have a good record against Chile and they will look to continue the good work.

Team news and possible line-ups

Angelo Sagal is available for Chile for the Argentina game and might play.

As for La Albiceleste, Matias Suarez is available and will likely play.

Chile XI : Arias, Isla, Medel, Maripan, Beausejour, Aranguiz, Pulgar, Vidal, Sagal, Vargas, Sanchez.

Argentina XI : Armani, Saravia, Funes Mori, Foyth, Tagliafico, Lo Celso, Paredes, Di Maria, Dybala, Martinez, M. Suarez.


I expect a close game here but Argentina to take the honours.
