Argentina lost on penalties to Chile in the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals so may be more fired up than their opponents for this third-place play-off.
La Albiceleste felt aggrieved at the officiating for their semi-final defeat against Brazil and that could also spur them on to finish the tournament on a high note.
La Roja were left shellshocked by a 3-0 thumping versus Peru and 4/5 they taste defeat again here is our opening Argentina vs Chile prediction.
A Look At Argentina’s Betting Odds
Argentina started the competition slowly, losing to Colombia and drawing with Paraguay, but a 2-0 triumph over Qatar saw them through to the quarter-finals.
Venezuela were then beaten 2-0, with Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez netting in back-to-back matches, but Brazil ended their resurgence in the semis.
Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino in each half did the damage, although Lionel Messi was left fuming after La Albiceleste were denied a penalty prior to the Selecao’s second strike.
The 32-year-old told reporters: “They were not better than us. The officiating was crazy. There were clear penalties, on (Nicolas) Otamendi, on ‘Kun’ (Sergio Aguero).”
Messi felt that was his side’s best performance so far and the hope is that they will stay focused for this bronze medal match.
Looking at the Argentina vs Chile odds, we like 7/1 for La Albiceleste to shade it 1-0.
A Look At Chile’s Betting Odds
Chile kicked off their quest for a hat-trick of Copa America titles by crushing Japan 4-0 and beating Ecuador 2-1, but have struggled up front since then.
La Roja went down 1-0 to Uruguay in their final Group C contest and then needed penalties to get past Colombia following a goalless stalemate.
The holders were still expected to reach the final after Peru upset Uruguay via spot-kicks, but Los Incas sprang another surprise, as Edison Flores, Yoshimar Yotun and Paolo Guerrero all found the net.
Chile had a chance to claw one back in the final seconds, but Eduardo Vargas saw his penalty kick saved by Pedro Gallese to sum up their shortcomings in front of goal.
