Argentina vs Chile Predictions
Argentina are likely to rest a host of players but they need a convincing performance here. The handicap is set at 49 points which makes it tough to call. I have a feeling Chile could get within that margin.

Head to Head
Argentina and Chile have not met in the last two decades.
Argentina are still huge favourites to take second place in Pool D but will have to avoid an upset in either this game or against Japan.
Los Pumas were very disappointing in their opening game as they lost 27-10 to England. It was a horror performance which was followed by a 19-10 win over Samoa.
That victory was also a pretty poor performance where the attack just didn’t click again. A bonus point win is crucial for Argentina here before they face Japan in what could effectively be a knockout game.

After fielding their full-strength side in the last two games, Argentina are likely to rest plenty key players here.
Chile came into their first-ever World Cup in high spirits and they produced the goods immediately.
Against Japan and Samoa, Chile competed well for the first 40 minutes. In both games, they were still in it at half time but they suffered in the second half.
Last time out, Chile were hammered by England, but in the opening 20 minutes, Chile showed what they are capable of. They didn’t score a point, but they went toe-to-toe with England, breaking the line regularly.
This is their last game of the competition, so they’ll want to leave it all out on the field.

With this being their final match, Chile will want to be as competitive as possible.
