In this post betting tips and preview of Chile-Argentina, the final of this Copa America.
CHILE - ARGENTINA
In the month of July there are no more interesting matches than this and this is a good reason to watch the Copa America Final.
Chile has never won this competition in its history and Messi has never won a cup with Argentina.
In our opinion this is going to be an unusual final, usually characterized by the fear to lose.
Both teams play very offensive and till now their results confirm it.
Chile has the best attack with 13 goals scored in 5 appearances scoring at least 1 goal each match, while Argentina has collected 10 goals.
Edu Vargas is the topscorer of the competition with 4 goals and Valdivia has served 3 winning passes.
Aguero is the argentinian top scorer with 3 goals and Messi is leading the assists table but has scored only 1 goal (although he is the player who has tried more shoot attempts: 17).
Messi has played a wonderful season, winning 3 competitions with Barcelona (Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League). Will he be decisive tonight and win his first trophy with his national team? Maybe.
Chile's gamestyle is made of pace and pressing, some lacks in the defensive phase but always well organized when attacking.
Coach Sampaoli will adopt again a 4-3-1-2. His team plays with a very high baricenter and always tries to verticalize the manouver and that could facilitate argentinian forwarders Messi and Aguero really devastating when it comes to counterattack.
Argentina will be disposed with a 4-3-3 but not too offensive since lateral backs have mainly defensive tasks and Mascherano in the midfield can be considered as an added defender.
It is going to be a very pleasant match, and in our opinion is better to choose BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.
About the winner we have a preference for Argentina, but we would not be surprised to see a chilean win considering also there will be a whole stadium supporting the "Roja".
In case you choose to bet on Argentina to win it would be safer to choose ARGENTINA TO RAISE THE CUP instead of ARGENTINA TO WIN (in the regular time).
CHILE: Bravo, Isla, Medel, Silva, Aránguiz, Díaz, Beausejour, Vidal, Valdivia, Edu Vargas, Sánchez.
ARGENTINA: Romero, Zabaleta, Garay, Otamendi, Rojo, Biglia, Mascherano, Messi, Pastore, Agüero, Di María.
