The best two teams of this year’s competition will square off, this Sunday, for a chance to win either a 15th Copa America for Argentina or a second trophy in a row for Chile. Both squads have been breathtaking and have dismantled teams along the way.
Argentina and Chile met, earlier in the tournament, which saw La Albiceleste without Messi winning 2-1 in the group stage. Let’s remember that this will be a rematch of last year’s Copa America final between the two countries won by La Roja, on home soil, via penalty kicks after a scoreless draw.
Argentina’s road to the final:
1st game – Argentina 2 – 1 Chile
2nd game – Argentina 5 – 0 Panama
3rd game – Argentine 3-0 Bolivia
Quarter-finals – Argentina 4 – 1 Venezuela
Semifinals – United States 0 – 4 Argentina
Chile’s path to the final:
1st game – Chile 1 – 2 Argentina
2nd game – Chile 2 – 1 Bolivia
3rd game – Chile 4 – 2 Panama
Quarter-finals – Chile 7-0 Mexico
Semifinals – Chile 2-0 Colombia
Argentina takes its revenge and wins la Copa America Centenario, its 15th and ties Uruguay.
