A new champion could be crowned at the Copa America Centenario on Sunday night, but Chile will surely have a say in the matter.

After knocking off Argentina in last year’s final, the Chileans look to repeat as champions at MetLife Stadium against Lionel Messi and Argentina.

Angel di Maria returns to the starting XI for Argentina, while Messi and Gonzalo Higuain lead the charge in the attack. After only conceding twice in their five matches at Copa America, Argentina will keep their back four the same on Sunday.

Chile will look for an extra spark from Arturo Vidal, who returns to the lineup after missing the semifinal due to suspension. Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas look to continue their strong tournament, hoping to bag a few goals and hand Chile their second straight Copa America title.
