Match Preview & Team News
Bookmakers obviously have high expectations from Argentina, pricing them at 3/5 rate to win the opener. Chile have caused so many troubles to top tier South American teams in the recent past though, and even won two out of the last three Copa America’s. Squad went through a lot of changes though and not all standard players will be in the roster. Both sides had a couple of surprising draws in World Cup qualifiers recently, so team spirits are not at super-high level. Read on our Copa America betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
These two opponents have met very recently in World Cup qualifiers. To be precise, that duel took place on 4th July in Buenos Aires. Argentina have gained an early lead thanks to goal scored by Leo Messi, while the final 1-1 result was set by Alexis Sanchez. The last competitive duel besides that was in Copa America 2019 when Gauchos won 2-1. That match is known as the first time Leo Messi received a red card. Argentina’s fans are definitely worried after last weekend’s clash versus Colombia. Their team had convincing 2-0 lead against Colombia thanks to Romero and Paredes, but blew everything I nthe second half and got away from Bogota with only one point. WC campaign is not in danger though, as they currently sit in solid 2nd place with 12 points from six games.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Four of the last six Argentina’s games have ended with two goals total or less. Those numbers are very similar for Chile. Both sides will surely be very careful as this is competition opener, so we expect Under 2.5 bet to land easily at 7/10 odds.
Argentina have underperformed lately and Chile actually stopped Gauchos two weeks ago in WC qualifying game. Draw or away win at 6/5 seems like nice value bet, but stake shouldn’t be very high.
