Mexico are on the red form at the moment and together with Argentina and Colombia, they are current favorites to reach this edition’s Copa America final. They kick-start their campaign with an excellent 3-1 win against Uruguay and went on to beat an extremely dangerous Jamaica. They were then held by Venezuela in the final match, but much owe to the conservative precautionary measures taken by head-coach Juan Carlos Osorio.

Chile are not at the best of their form and hardly looked comfortable in the wins against weaker sides like Bolivia and Panama. Looking back to the start of the tournament, they lost 4 of their 5 matches and Argentina handed them their third consecutive defeat in the group opener. Juan Antonio Pizzi tutored side seem to struggle against stronger and moderate teams at the moment, despite having immense quality in the squad.

Mexico vs Chile: Predicted Line-ups

Mexico (4-3-3): Talavera – Layun, Moreno, Reyes, Araujo – Marquez, Herrera, Guardado – Corona, Lozano, Hernandez.

Chile (4-3-3): Bravo – Mena, Jara, Medel, Fuenzalida – Vidal, Diaz, Aranguiz – Beausejour, Sanchez, Vargas.

Mexico vs Chile: Head-to-Head Stats

Mexico lead the head-to-head stats against Chile with 7 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses from 14 meetings between the sides.

Mexico are also unbeaten in the last 5 meetings against Chile across all formats. Their last meeting was in a warm-up match for the preparation for Centenario tournament, where a late goal by Javier Hernandez gave Mexico a 1-0 win.

They had met on 6 occasions at Copa America, with Mexico winning 3 of them against Chile’s 1, while 2 end in draws. The latest of which came in the Copa America 2015 hosted in Chile, where they played a thrilling 3-3 draw in the group stage encounter. However Mexico haven’t won in the last three Copa America meetings against Chile as they drawn 2 and lost once.

Chile’s last win against Mexico until now is at Copa America 2011 hosted in Argentina, where second half goals Arturo Vidal and Esteban Paredes earned them a 2-1 win.

Mexico vs Chile: Prediction

This is a match between two teams of contrasting forms, Mexico are at the top of their form, while Chile are struggling. The wins from the last two games may give Chile some confidence, but they will be very vary of the threat possessed by a hard working Mexican midfield. While, Chile’s defense has everything to worry about after conceding 5 goals in the three group games.

For me Juan Carlos Osorio’s Mexico are favourites to knockout Chile and advance to the semifinals. And I also expect to see some end to end attacking football in the second half. I back Mexico to win this inside 90 minutes and expect both teams to score.

Exact Score Prediction: Mexico 2-1 Chile.
