It is a repeat of last year’s final when Argentina taken on Chile for the Copa America Centenario Final 2016 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday evening.
The route to final has been easy for Argentina this year and they had won each of their five matches in the tournament convincingly. Argentina, who kicked off the tournament with a 2-1 win over Chile, went on to thrash Panama 5-0 and then Bolivia 3-0 to finish are group toppers. This was followed by a 4-1 quarter final win against Venezuela, and then the hosts USA were brushed aside 4-0 in the semifinals. The Albiceleste has scored an incredible 18 goals in the tournament so far, conceding just 2. They started the tournament strongly and look set to end their 23 year trophy drought on Sunday.
Chile made a slow start to the tournament with a defeat to Argentina in the group opener and looked unconvincing in the two wins over Bolivia and Panama. The lady luck was set to shine on Chile when they faced Mexico in the quarter finals and registered one of the biggest victories in Copa America history with the score line of 7-0. If confidence can do wonders, this is what it had done to a team struggling at the start of the tournament. Then two first half goals helped them see past Colombia in the semifinals under difficult playing condition to book their place in consecutive Copa America Finals.
