Argentina vs Chile: Recent forms of both the teams

Argentina is coming from an unbeaten run since 2019. Though the Latin American team has not been able to win Copa America since 1993, almost thirty years ago. However, they had managed to play finals in between those thirty years.

Both the team played each other recently and the match had ended in a draw. A goal apiece from Lionel Messi and Alexis Sanchez made sure the match ended with a result 1-1. Lionel Scaloni has managed the Argentine team well since their exclusion from the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

However, a draw against Chile and Colombia (2-2) in 2021 made their year winless till now. However, with a pull of talent in their side, La Albiceleste will surely look to start off the tournament on a high note.

On the other hand, Chile will be looking for their third Copa America title after winning it back to back in 2015 and 2016. Just like Argentina, Chile has found it hard to win games recently. Their draw against Argentina and Bolivia was not their best performance at all.

However. coach Martin Lasarte is not concerned much about his team's performance. He is confident enough that his team can pull this off like in 2015 and 2016.
