The upcoming 2015 Copa America final sees Argentina face off against Chile on Saturday 4th July, so find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Argentina v Chile bets.
Having seen off the rest of the competition, the two form sides in this year’s Copa America lock horns as both Argentina and Chile look to claim the 2015 title on Saturday night.
While Argentina finished the group stage at the top of Group B, they were far less dominant than many pre-tournament predictions - and indeed the Group B standing - had suggested.
Throwing away a 2-0 lead to draw against Paraguay in their opening game, Argentina recovered to record 1-0 wins over defending champions Uruguay and Jamaica in their other two group games, to book their place in the quarter-finals as group champions.
Despite just squeaking past Columbia on penalties in their quarter-final meeting, Argentina turned on the style with an emphatic 6-1 win over Paraguay on Tuesday night - as they gained revenge for their opponents two-goal fightback in the opening game between the two sides.
Chile have enjoyed playing in front of the home support throughout the competition, with the 2015 hosts reaching their first Copa America final in 28 years.
Topping Group A with seven points, Chile then saw off defending champions Uruguay in the last-eight. Peru were all that was standing between the hosts and a final appearance in their home tournament and an Eduardo Vargas brace was enough to see them off and keep Chile on course for a first Copa America tournament win in 99 years of the tournament taking place.
With both sides at the top of their game and full of confidence, this 2015 Copa America final clash could go down to the wire and both Argentina and Chile will fancy their chances of lifting the trophy.
Saturday's match will be shown live on Premier Sports at 21:00 and is sure to be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers, who will all be looking to make a profit on what should be an exciting encounter. One way in which you can increase your chances of winning long term is to take advantage of William Hill’s free bet offers, to add a level of protection to your Argentina v Chile bets.
Bore Draw Insurance
Argentina have only failed to score in one of their 2015 Copa America games so far - the 0-0 draw against Columbia, which they won 5-4 on penalties - while Chile have found the net in every game en route to the final.
The pair have chalked up 23 goals between them so far, so surely it’s only right to expect plenty of goals in the 2015 Copa America.
However, should both sides struggle to score and a bore-draw ensures, William Hill have you covered.
If this 2015 Copa America clash does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result (HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet - equal to up to a maximum £50 of your stake.
Goalscorer Second Chance
Argentina’s star man Lionel Messi is bound to be a popular First Goalscorer choice for this game, especially with the Barcelona striker looking to claim the four goals he needs to reach 50 International goals and edge himself ever closer to Gabriel Batistuta’s record of 56.
Should their main dangerman not be able to add to his 46 International goals, Argentina will look to capable deputies Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel di Maria to step up and add to their Copa America goal tally to get the goals they need to see off the Chileans.
Meanwhile, Eduardo Vargas will be the obvious candidate in the First Goalscorer market for Chile - as he looks to add to his four tournament goals and ensures he holds on to his 2015 Copa America Top Goalscorer spot after the final.
However, should he prove to be a dud in the last match of the tournament, Chile will be confident that plenty of others can produce in their place, with Arturo Vidal (3), Alexis Sanchez and Gary Medel (both 1) already showing that they know where the net is earlier in the tournament.
Defender Mauricio Isla scored the only goal to see off Uruguay in the quarter-finals, so he may be another to pop up once again and double his tally against Argentina.
Whoever you decide to plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund. Should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game, you would receive a free bet refund of up to £50 thanks to WIlliam Hill’s Goalscorer Second Chance.
