The new edition of the Copa America 2020 tournament will start from this June 12th and it will continue until 12th July, as the fixture has already been approved and published by FIFA. This year the tournament will be host by Argentina and Colombia which is an event that is happening after the long term. The reason behind the Copa America 2020 is being hosted by two countries was to bring South America soccer to all the fans of the continent.

Argentina Team Squad:
Goalkeepers: Juan Musso, Esteban Andrada, Agustin Marchesen, Emilino Martinez
Defenders: German Pezzella, Nicolas Otamendi, Juan Foyth, Marcos Rojo, Nehuen perez, Walter Kannemann,
Midfielders: Nicolas Tagliafico, Marcos Acuna, Renzo Saravia, Leandro Pareds, Guido Rodriguez, Giovani Lo Celso, Nicolas Dominguez, Rodrigo de Paul, Alexis Mac Allister, Roberto Pereyra
Forwards: Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Sergio Aguero, Lucas Ocampos, Paulo Dybala, Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria, Nicolas Gonzalez, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Lucas Alario
There is no argument that Messi is one of the great football players of all time. He has won so many personal trophy and many for Barcelona but the biggest overdue of his life is that he did not win any international trophy for Argentina which is the biggest regret of his life. Therefore, this edition of Copa America in 2020 will be a great opportunity for Messi to silverware his glorious career and lots of achievements before his retires.
Chile Team Squad:
Goalkeeper: Gabriel Arias, Claudio Bravo, Gonzalo Collao
Defender: Guillermo Maripan, Paulo Diaz, Sebastian Vegas, Francisco Sierralta, Miiko Albornoz, Alfonso Parot, Oscar Opazo, Mauricio Isla
Midfielder: Erick Pulgar, Gary Medel, Claudio Baeza, Esteban Pavez, Arturo Vidal, Cesar Pinares
Forward: Jean Meneses, Fabian Orellana, Christian Bravo, Felipe Mora, Diego Rubio, Niklas Fernando Castro
Chile is now standing in the 5th position and their current performance is good enough. If we look to their last ten matches, there they won 7 (seven) of them, 2 drawn and lost one against Uruguay due to bad luck. Their three famous players Vidal, Sanchez, Vargas have got a goal regularly which would give them extra confidence to win the title of Copa America once again.
Prediction: Argentina 1-2 Chile
Chile was the last two Copa winners of 2015 and 2016 Copa America before the last installment of 2019 Copa America which was won by Brazil. Surely Chile is a very strong team to play against. In addition, Argentina is also going to try their best to win this Copa America; not only for Argentina but also for Messi and their fans as it has been a long time for them since they won any last international trophy. And of course, they would want to start the journey with winning. But my prediction is that Chile is going to win the match by 2-1.
