Copa America Match of the NightPublished June 15, 2015 by Sol FH
Chile take on Mexico in Group A go head to head in round two of the Copa America. Match starts at 00:30 GMT.
The host nation Chile gets set to host Mexico tonight in Round two of the 2015 Copa America soccer tournament. Chile has the sole win in the group so far, but Mexico is a dangerous team and could easily challenge for the later stages of this championship.
Chile was able to pull out a victory against Ecuador, 2-0 in their opener. Star goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo shut the visitors down, while Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas found the back of the net to lead the team to their first win. Chile is the highest ranked team in Group A and the home pitch advantage should work out well this year.
Chile has yet to win the Copa America but they have made it to the Final four times. Even though the critics are set on Argentina, led by Barcelona star Lionel Messi should win this year, Chile is due for a win and look great so far.
Mexico was held to a first round draw against Bolivia. They are ranked 23rd in the Copa America this year and will most likely be knocked out soon. With the Gold Cup on the horizon, Manager Miguel Herrera is sitting much of his roster in preparation. Giovani Dos Santos, Francisco Javier Rodriguez, Andres Guardado and Hector Moreno will not be playing in tonight's game.
Mexico is without their top players and do not look like a team that can contest Chile at home. Expect Chile to beat Mexico 3-0 over 90 minutes.
