Argentina defeats Chile: The incumbent champions are lifted at the Copa America by Lautaro's late winner

Argentina defeated Chile 1-0 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Tuesday to start their Copa America defense with two victories from two games, despite the fact that they left it very late.

Claudio Bravo, 41, kept the reigning world and South American champions at bay until the 88th minute, despite Argentina’s ludicrous dominance in possession (61-39), shots (22–3), and xG (2.38–0.12). Argentina advances to the knockout stages and tops Group A as a result of the win. Argentina will win the group if they get a point against Peru in their last match (or if Canada loses to Chile).


After only a partial clearance of Lionel Messi’s corner kick, Lautaro Martinez ultimately scored. The striker from Inter Milan, who had previously scored in Argentina’s opening win over Canada, was the one who received the ball as it rebounded out of the back side of the scrum.

Argentina’s squad updates and priorities

The goals against Canada came from Martinez and Julian Alvarez, relieving some of the pressure on Messi and enabling the 37-year-old—whose birthday was on Monday—to move more freely through the midfield and exert greater influence. Of course, Messi has proven with Inter Miami and in other Argentina appearances since joining MLS that he is still capable of taking charge and calling the shots later in the tournament.


info about the Chilean team, emphasis

Over the weekend, La Roja battled to a scoreless draw with Peru. Diego Valdes, a winger, hurt his foot in the first half of the match and is probably going to miss the remainder of the competition. Ben Brereton Diaz of Sheffield United might take Valdes’ spot in the starting lineup.

Prediction for Argentina vs. Chile

Even while Argentina appeared smart in the first game, there was clearly much more to come from them. For the remainder of the field, that is very terrifying. Argentina defeats Chile 2-0.
