Argentina’s premier Chile has confirmed its place in the World Cup.
And that means they can afford to rest Lionel Messi, who continues his recovery from Covid.
Opponents Chile have a recent history of repulsing Argentina, winning both the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals against them.
And their need for points is far greater than that of Albiceleste, as they sit in sixth place outside the qualifying places.
