Chile will play their final game in Group A this week, as they clash with Paraguay. They are still looking to battle for top spot in the group, but only a win coupled with defeat for Argentina would see them secure that finish.
Copa America Preview
It has been a fine Copa America campaign for Chile to this point, as their place in the next round of the competition is already confirmed. However, they will be looking to finish at the top of the group to have a more straightforward route to the final this summer. They come into their final group game against Paraguay two points behind Argentina, which means only a win will be enough to keep their hopes of topping the group alive. Chile are unbeaten in the completion so far, as they have picked up five points. Those points have been picked up by two draws and a victory. Their only win came on the second matchday as they overcame Bolivia. They were held in their most recent Copa America fixture by Uruguay, as Eduardo Vargas scored the goal in the game for Chile.
Paraguay are one of a number of teams in Group A that still have two games left to play in the group stages. They have only played two games to this point, and are currently in third, two points below Chile. They were beaten by Argentina in their most recent match in the competition, while they picked up a dominant win against Bolivia to get their campaign underway on matchday one. There are still bigger tests to come for Paraguay, as they look to have secured their place in the next round, but they will be hoping to end the group stage with some strong form.
