Group A will wrap up their group play at the 2024 Copa America on Saturday, June 29. Argentina has pretty much taken care of the top spot in the group, so this matchup between Canada and Chile essentially decides who advances alongside La Albiceleste. Canada-Chile will take place in downtown Orlando at the home of the MLS’ Orlando City SC, Inter&Co Stadium, with kickoff going down at 8:00PM E.T.

Canada put themselves in a great spot with their win over Peru last time out, as all they need to advance is a draw here against Chile. Meanwhile, Chile lost to Argentina and drew Peru, so they will need to take all three points on Saturday night to squeak into the quarterfinals.

Canada vs Chile Analysis

CanadaCanada

Canada has impressed in this tournament, putting up a solid performance despite suffering defeat at the hands of Argentina before proving they belong with a 1-0 win against frisky Peru. All they need to do is not lose this one to advance, but sitting back is never a good option, and manager Jesse Marsch isn’t one to park the bus.

Team news: No recent major injuries or outstanding suspension risks.

Predicted Lineup: Keeper: Maxime Crepeau; Defenders: Richie Laryea, Derek Cornelius, Moise Bombito, Alistair Johnston; Midfielders: Stephen Eustaquio, Ismael Kone, Alphonso Davies, Jacob Shaffelburg; Forwards: Jonathan David, Cyle Larin

ChileChile

Chile will be desperate to get on the board early in this one, though they haven’t exactly shown that they can do that, as they have yet to score in the tourney. They didn’t seem potent against either Peru or Argentina, totaling just four shots on goal so far, so they will have to hope to find their shooting boots on Saturday.

Team news: No recent major injuries or outstanding suspension risks.

Predicted Lineup: Keeper: Claudio Bravo; Defenders: Mauricio Isla, Igor Lichnovsky, Paulo Diaz, Gabriel Suazo; Midfielders: Erick Pulgar, Rodrigo Echeverria, Dario Osorio, Victor Davila; Forwards: Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas

Canada vs Chile Match Prediction

This is the Copa America match to watch on Saturday night, as the winner of this Canada-Chile matchup will go through as the second-place team from Group A behind Argentina. Canada just needs a draw, while Chile will need to take all three points to advance.

It could have been Chile playing the long game and limiting damage until they got to the final match of group play, but they haven’t taken many chances in the first two matches, putting just four total shots on target so far. Going into the tournament, Chile had also lost or drawn three of their previous four matches against teams that qualified for this Copa.

Canada manager Jesse Marsch is known for his aggressive tactics, but we believe he’ll find a way to marry that with a more cagey approach, playing for the counter attack and limiting Chile to impotent possession on the wings. We’re going to stay away from betting on this result, but if we had to, the draw at +225 seems like the best value here.

Canada vs. Chile Best Bet:

Both Teams To Score - NO (-118) | Betway

Neither of these teams has a super potent attack, but neither has a stalwart defense either, so instead of going for the result, we’re going with a safer prop from Betway here. Between Chile and Canada, there have been four matches contested so far at this Copa America, and all four have seen either one or neither team scoring.

Not to mention, Canada’s last five matches have seen both teams fail to score, and the same goes for Chile, as nine of their last 10 matches have seen only one side (or neither side) finding the back of the net. The -118 odds we’re getting from sports betting sites for this prop seem more than reasonable and much safer than trying to predict the result, which seems like it could be a crap shoot. And, for what it’s worth, of the four times they did meet between 1988 and 1995, only one saw both teams score.
