These are the games for today in the Copa America

Lionel Messi returns to MetLife Stadium in a America Cup and it is impossible not to evoke the unfortunate night he lived with Argentina in the final played eight years ago.

That was where they lost on penalties to Chile, precisely their rival on Tuesday in the second round of Group A of the continental tournament.

On that night of June 26, 2016, Messi missed the first penalty of the shoot-out and ended up crying in the stadium tunnels. After seeing Chile champion, “La Pulga” surprised with his departure from the national team. However, a lot has happened since that fateful moment and Argentina was already champion of America and the World, respectively.

This Tuesday they will face each other again, but this time with much more imbalance than in the past. The balance is obviously in favor of Argentina, who as defending champions and with a first game won in the current competition, do not have the image that it will be a difficult duel. Unlike Chile, who are not going through the best moment. They debuted with a draw against Peru and have many shortcomings on paper.
