Argentina can secure their spot in the knockout stage of the 2024 Copa America with a win against Chile at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Tuesday. The reigning champions began their campaign with a solid 2-0 victory over Canada, demonstrating their strong form. In contrast, Chile managed only a 0-0 draw against Peru, highlighting their struggles to find the net despite promising pre-tournament performances. Ricardo Gareca's side has now gone three consecutive Copa America matches without scoring, reflecting their recent attacking challenges.

Under Lionel Scaloni, Argentina has been impressive, currently riding a six-match winning streak since their World Cup qualifier loss to Uruguay last November. Historically, Argentina has never lost to Chile in normal time at the Copa America, although they did suffer penalty shootout defeats in the 2015 and 2016 finals. Key players like Lionel Messi, who set a Copa America appearance record in their opener, and emerging talents such as Julian Alvarez, who scored his first tournament goal, will be crucial for Argentina.

Chile faces potential lineup changes with injuries and suspension risks. Diego Valdes is uncertain due to an injury, and Alexis Sanchez, Victor Davila, and Erick Pulgar are at risk of suspension if they receive another yellow card. Additionally, Claudio Bravo, who became the oldest player to feature in the Copa America this century, will need to maintain his form. 

A victory for Argentina will ensure their progression to the knockout stage for the 14th consecutive time, underscoring their dominance and consistency in this tournament.
