Argentina and Chile face off in the 2016 Copa America final at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, with Argentine legend Diego Maradona warning his countrymen not to come home if they do not secure their first silverware in 23 years. Chile are no pushovers though, as Argentina found out last year when La Roja beat them 4-1 on penalties in the final to claim the trophy.

How the Bookies See it

  • Winner: Argentina 3/4, Chile 15/4, Draw 12/5 - Ladbrokes
  • Half Time/Full Time: Argentina/Argentina 9/5, Draw/Argentina 7/2, Chile/Argentina 25/1 -Paddy Power
  • First Goalscorer: Lionel Messi 10/3, Gonzalo Higuain 7/2, Alexis Sanchez 13/2 - William Hill

Form

  • Argentina have scored eighteen goals in five games at the tournament, conceding just two, and have now put together a run of nine wins in a row. Of those victories, two have come against Sunday’s opponents Chile, including a 2-1 success in their opening game of Copa America.
  • Chile also know where the back of the net is, notching up sixteen goals in five matches, including seven against Mexico in the quarter finals. A pair of 2-1 defeats to Argentina in recent months will weigh heavily on their minds as they take to the pitch on Sunday, but will it be time for revenge?

Sports.net’s view

Lionel Messi became Argentina’s all-time record goalscorer with his 32nd minute strike in the 4-0 demolition of USA in the semi finals and it would be tough to bet against the Barcelona star opening the scoring on Sunday night. His main rival is teammate Gonzalo Higuain, who bagged a brace in the same game and whose 7/2 from William Hill is a good price.

The last two games between the teams have ended 2-1 to Argentina and you will find 8/1 from Paddy Power on lightning striking thrice this weekend. For Chile to win by the same scoreline, the bookie is offering 16/1, which will tempt many who see Argentina’s trophy dry spell continuing.

If you think the free scoring that has epitomised both teams’ campaigns so far will continue, Betfred has 3/1 on there being more than 3.5 goals and 13/2 on there being more than 4.5.

  • Sports.net’s top tip - Argentina to win 2-1 at 8/1 with Paddy Power. 

Please note that odds can fluctuate in the run up to the match.
