Argentina vs Chile Betting Tips & Predictions

It's time to kick off the 47th edition of the Copa America, the world's oldest national team championship. In the opening match of the Copa America 2021, Argentina will face Chile. Ahead of the match, which kicks off on June 13 at 22:00, the home team Argentina are clear favourites. But Chile is definitely not an easy opponent and it probably will take a pretty good effort by Lionel Messi and co to bring home the three points.

Argentina certainly has a clear advantage, but it is still uncertain whether there will be any matches in front of spectators. If the tournament is played in front of spectators then it will probably be with large restrictions. In an opening match, anything can happen and it is hardly a given that the favourite Argentina will take all three points. But of course, if you look at previous meetings between the teams and take into consideration the quality of the players the team has available, it is perhaps not so strange that Argentina after all are solid favourites in this match.

Argentina vs Chile Copa America Game Analysis, Odds and Betting Predictions

In the first match in the Copa America 2021, we are offered a real classic in the form of Argentina against Chile. This is a match between two nations that have played each other a lot of times over the years. But who will stand as a winner this time? Or will there perhaps be shared points as it was when the teams played each other last time in 2019?

It has been a long time since Argentina managed to win the Copa America, more precisely all the way back to 1993. Since then the 14-time champions have stumbled on the finish line four times in four Copa America finals. The last time Argentina played the final was in 2016 when they lost to Chile after penalties.

There is hardly any doubt that the betting companies have Argentina as a clear favourite in this matchup, but will it be such a "Walk in the park" that many expect it to be? If you are to go all in on a win for Argentina then it is important to be aware that Chile has a history of causing upsets when tipped for defeat. With players like Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas, you can never write off Chile's chances of winning. What speaks a little to the disadvantage of Chile is that many of the star players have reached the peak of their careers and are on their way down. Is this maybe something that will affect Chile's performance in this year's edition of the Copa America?

Argentina - Overview & Facts

Argentina, alongside Brazil, is the Copa America's main favourites. Maybe not so strange if you consider the high quality of the players that they possess. In Argentina's Copa America squad, we find lots of top players where Lionel Messi is the brightest shining of them all. But Messi has not yet managed to win the tournament and time is slowly but steady running out for the 33-year-old who has been named the world's best player several times during his successful career. But Argentina does not stand or fall with Messi even if he will be difficult to replace. Among other leading players in the Argentine Copa America squad, we find Sergio Agüero, Angel Di Maria and Lautaro Martínez, players with a lot of attacking qualities who can play decisive rolls for the team if Messi fails to do so.

Argentina to win Copa America

The last time Argentina played Chile in the Copa America was in 2019 when they won the bronze medal match with 2-1, after goals from Sergio Agüero and Paulo Dybala. This was a match that also produced two red cards. Lionel Messi in Argentina and Gary Medel in Chile were the perpetrators. Maybe this is an indication that one or two cards can be dealt out this time as well? In total, the referee handed out 7 yellow and 2 red cards in the bronze medal match in 2019.

Chile - Overview & Facts

Copa America 2021 will be the first real test for Chile's newcomer national team coach Martín Lasarte. The 60-year-old Uruguayan was appointed as recently as February 2021 and has never coached a national team before. The last club that Lasarte coached was Al Ahly in the season 2018-19. If Lasarte is the right man to be in charge of Chile, well, time will tell. But it is not an easy task that awaits him and despite the nation's successes in recent years, it must be mentioned that Chile are considered to be an outsider way behind the big guns Brazil, Argentina and Colombia.

Chile to win Copa America

Although Chile's Copa America squad is not as star-studded as Argentina's, there are still a number of players of a fairly high standard. Alexis Sanchez with over 130 A-national caps is an experienced player who usually does well when he puts on the Chilean national team jersey. The 32-year-old Sanchez is still going strong even though he is slowly moving towards the end of his career. Another 30 plus player is Arturo Vidal who is a team-mate with Sanchez in Italian team Inter Milan. Like Sanchez, Vidal has scored a lot of goals for his Chile over the years and this may be the last time we get to see both players on the field in a Copa America tournament.

What’s up next in Copa America?

After the opening match between Argentina and Chile, Bolivia is next up for Chile and Argentina will play Uruguay. In terms of betting companies' odds, Chile will be clear favourites while Argentina will stand a tough test against Uruguay, who believe it or not have won the Copa America the most times with 15 wins In total. Each team in the Copa America will play four group matches. Of the group's five teams, four will advance, which means that there may be a little room for one or two bad performances for the teams. But at the same time there is a risk of getting a tougher draw already in the quarter finals if you do not get results in the group matches.
