COPA AMERICA has played second fiddle to the Euros but Argentina have been turning on the style.

They’ve netted 18 goals on their way to tomorrow’s final against Chile in New Jersey and are 4-5 with McBookie and William Hill to lift the trophy in 90 minutes.

The sides have already met at the group stage with Argentina winning 2-1 and it was more comfortable than the scoreline suggests as Chile netted an injury-time consolation. That was an Argentine side without Lionel Messi as his arrival in the States was delayed by his tax case and injury.

He came on in the second game against Panama and hammered a second-half hat-trick, netted against Venezuela in the quarters and then smashed in a stunning free-kick against USA to become his nation’s leading scorer with 55.

With Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero as support acts it’s difficult to see Argentina not winning although Ezequil Lavezzi is out after breaking his shoulder after netting against the USA.

Chile’s five games have featured 21 goals including an amazing 7-0 defeat of Chile in the quarters and 2-0 victory over Colombia 2-0 in the semis.

However, I’m on Argentina and Messi to score at any time at 5-4 with 888sport. The Barcelona superstar is 7-2 at bet365 to score first with Higuain 4-1 at Coral.ectively.

Arturo Vidal missed the semi-final through suspension but is back while Argentina's Angel di Maria has declared himself fit.

Argentina have won their last eight matches, including two against Chile, and I believe they will win in 90 minutes.
