Argentina vs Chile Prediction

Argentina head into their Copa America opener without injured ace Leo Messi and, no doubt, the Barcelona superstar will be sorely missed in Tuesday’s clash. Chile have been struggling to find their best form of late and, taking everything into account, under 2.5 goals bet appears on the cards. The two teams played out a goalless draw in the 2015 Copa America final, but Chile eventually defeated Argentina on penalties.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 1.70 (7/10) @Unibet
