Chile vs Mexico Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg in Group A on Copa América, host of this competition Chile take on Mexico.
In the opening match of this competition, Chile beat Ecuador 2-0 and if they repeat their good performance against Mexico, they will open the door of the second phase on Copa América. For many bookies, Chile is the 3rd favorite, after Argentina and Brazil, but I believe that Chile can win the trophy.
Mexico don’t play with the best possible squad on Copa America and many important players are out, so this competition would be a good chance for their coach to try some new players. They failed to beat Bolivia and I don’t believe that they can make surprise and beat Chile.
Chile vs Mexico injuries and suspensions
Matias Fernández, who replaced midfielder Valdivia in the first match, is out for this game after he got the second yellow card.
In Mexico squad, Guillermo Ochoa (66/0 gk), Jonathan dos Santos (9/0 m), Andrés Guardado (113/15 m), Héctor Herrera (24/0 m), Oribe Peralta (36/16 f, 2nd top scorer), Giovani dos Santos (85/15 f), Javier Hernández (72/39 f, top scorer), Carlos Vela (37/11 f), Héctor Moreno (58/1 d), Paul Aguilar (40/3 d) and Jorge Torres Nilo (39/1 d) weren’t invited, while many players from domestic league are in squaf, but it seems that they don’t have enough quality to make some good result on this competition.
One of the most experienced players and captian Rafael Márquez (127/15 d) picked up injury in the first match against Bolivia and he will miss this match, so their coach still looking for the best choice to replace him.

Chile vs Mexico Betting Tip and Predictions
With the big home support behind the squad, Chile is a huge favorite to take another three points and qualify in the next phase. On the other side, I don’t believe that Mexico with the very poor squad can make something positive.
