Mexico vs Chile Team News

The likes of Miguel Layun, Javier Hernandez, Rafa Marquez and Nesto Araujo are all likely to return to the starting line-up after they were rested in a 1-1 draw with Venezuela. Javier Aquino suffered an injury in the final group game and he is definitely out of contention. Coach Juan Carlos Osorio has no other selection worries ahead of the Copa America quarter-final.

Injured: Javier Aquino (35/0)

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Mauricio Isla misses the match through suspension, with Jose Pedro Fuenzalida likely to replace him in the starting line-up. Eugenio Mena has yet to overcome his injury, but he is the only absentee in Pizzi’s team. Alexis Sanchez scored a brace against Panama and he is likely to keep his place in the starting line-up. Coach Pizzi should stick to the 4-3-3 formation.

Injured: Eugenio Mena (46/3)

Doubtful: None

Suspended: Mauricio Isla (77/3)

Mexico vs Chile Prediction

All eyes will be on Levi’ Stadium when Mexico and Chile take on each other in the 2016 Copa America quarter-finals. Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio rested his key players against Venezuela, but seeing that he is going to field the best possible side against La Roja, there is every chance El Tri will score in Sunday’s clash. Given Chile’s attacking potential, both teams to score bet appears on the horizon.

Betting Tip: Both teams to score

Odds: 1.95 (10/11) @Betfair
