The top forward and the current skipper of Argentina national football team Lionel Messi is out of the team due to the punishment. And the coach Scaloni did not keep Aguero in the squad as well. So, the main stars of the attacking division were absent earlier today and Argentina could not provide their best form on the ground. They failed to bring the victory and so, Argentina-Chile match finished with the draw!
Earlier today at the Los Angeles, the match which was an International Friendly competition between Argentina and Chile finished with a 0 – 0 goals draw. After the failure in the last Copa America that took place a couple of months ago in Brazil, these two South American teams have started their official journey.
Sad to see that this was the turnout in LA’s Coliseum for Argentina v Chile. No Messi, no interest it seems.

Excluding the recently finished CA 2019, the last two seasons, Argentina and Chile played Copa America final back to back two times and all two times, Chile won the CA titles by defeating Argentina. In the last Copa America, these two teams faced in the 3rd place fixer match and Argentina beat Chile by a 2 – 1 goal and grabbed the 3rd position.
The two times FIFA World Cup winner Argentina could start the game so well. In the 13th minute of the game, the Juven star Paulo Dybala took a certain speedy shot which has been missed only for a little. In the first half, the team played well and aggressive and went close to find the net a number of times but finally could not see the glory. Just before the break, from outside of the box, Lo Celso made a volley which was went outside of the post.
No goals, but 7 combined yellow cards through 70 minutes for Argentina and Chile at the Coliseum. Not very friendly for a friendly. pic.twitter.com/I57gf1rSYl

In the 60th minute of the game, Chile found their best chance as well as the best chance in the match. Chile midfielder Pinares took a shot from outside of the box which was stopped by the crossbar. In the rest of the time, no teams could create suitable chances and so, the scoreboard remained the same 0 – 0.
If we consider the statistics of the whole match, Argentina played far better than Chile in Los Angeles. They took a total of 13 shots where three of them were on the target. In return, their opponent took a total of five shots only in the match and just two of them were on the target. However, in the next Wednesday, team Argentina will play against Mexico.
