The Argentina team finally produced a performance deserving of their world-class personnel, with Paraguay despatched in devastating fashion in the semi-finals.

La Albiceleste booked their place in the Copa America final in style, with Angel Di Maria chipping in with a brace as Tata Martino’s side ran riot against a Paraguay side who has previously dumped Brazil out of the competition.

We know that Argentina have always had the potential to run up a big scoreline, although they had flattered to deceive until the floodgates opened against the Paraguayans. Now they face Chile for the chance to end their Copa America drought.

As you might expect, Lionel Messi and Co are warm favourites to win this match in ninety minutes and it might be that their firepower gets them over the line. However, Chile are no slouches and will count on the majority of support in Santiago, with Jorge Sampaoli hoping to get one over his compatriots in this match.

While Argentina can count on Messi, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain, it is Eduardo Vargas leading the scoring charts after a brace against Peru, with the former QPR forward partnering Alexis Sanchez in attack.

In the midfield, you have Arturo Vidal whose drunken car crash jeopardised his chance of participating in the tournament, although he has flourished during the tournament and is rumoured to be signing for Real Madrid in the next few weeks.

Nevertheless, the Chilean defence is suspect and a crazy 3-3 draw against Mexico at the group stage illustrated that Argentina will be licking their lips at the thought of meeting La Roja in the final.

We think the best plan could be to back a goal-filled contest, especially at generous odds of 11/10. Neither team will take a defensive approach to this match and a high-scoring draw could be on the cards.
