The last Copa America Centenario quarterfinal pits the reigning champions of each participating confederation against each other. In the red corner: Chile, winner of the 2015 Copa America, slightly bruised by the experience of losing in the group stage to the team it beat to win the CONMEBOL crown last year (Argentina). In the green corner: Mexico, winner of the 2015 Gold Cup, and winner of Group C at this tournament.
El Tri is unbeaten under head coach Juan Carlos Osorio (though no longer perfect: the 1-1 draw against Venezuela was the first game Mexico hasn't won since JCO officially took charge of the team). Chile is enduring a less enchanted adjustment to life under a new coach: the team has lost more games (four) than it has won (three) since Juan Antonio Pizzi took over in January.
But two of those wins came in La Roja's last two matches, so perhaps things are looking up for the CONMEBOL champs.
It can be hoped we'll see an open, attacking game from two teams with plenty of talent in their respective squads. On the line is a semifinal against Colombia, a talented but vulnerable opponent that either of these teams will fancy they have more than a chance against.
