These two teams were so close to playing the same final in this competition for the third time in a row, but they had fallen at the last hurdle. The loss must be more painful for Albiceleste, given the dreams that have associated with this trophy.
Against Brazil, his rival, the team suffered a 2-0 defeat and once again, their unhappiness on the international scene continued. It would be difficult for them now to get up and line up for the game for the third place, in other words, the losers’ final.
Players with mental problems would deserve credit if they determined to play this game, but given the expectations and the pressure to which they subjected, that is an unrealistic prospect.
In the other semifinal, the two defending champions eliminated from the tournament by Peru of all the teams. The team of Alexis Sanchez could have progressed without many incidents but had to suffer a 3-0 defeat. The penalty of Eduardo Vargas in Panenka easily saved by the opposing goalkeeper, summarizing the history for the Chileans.
After failing to qualify for the CONMEBOL World Cup, the team wanted to make a deep and resounding career in the Cups, but their story ended in a tear. It would have been less painful if he had been against a more accomplished camp.

Argentina vs Chile: Prediction
The match for third place in any tournament is a painful matter. The players just want to have completed all the procedures and find the security of their home, but after having a broken heart in the penultimate stage, they have to queue to make a profit without any sense.
These two categories of players desperately wanted the title for their reasons, but they will have to settle for a non-glorious third or fourth place.
It would be too demanding to expect the game to be very exciting, and it certainly will not be fair to ask players to enter the field in this game.
Nervous and dangerous ninety minutes are in the cards and the frustration and annoyance will be exposed.
As for talent, Chileans have an advantage, ignoring some pillars of the opposite half. Also, the former has a more prepared team and has the experience of playing longer between them, and has handled many more high-pressure situations before.
As such, the current champions must avoid a defeat and face an exhausted Argentine team, this is the expected result.
However, in terms of goals, the Albiceleste defense must stand firm. A general trend for the side has been: the bottom line to overcome the offense. Also, the group led by Gary Medel failed to score a single goal in the last three games of the tournament, and especially in his last two games against this opponent.
Bearing this in mind, we can expect a case of unimportant objectives.
