The Copa America Centenario will have a rematch of last year's final between Argentina and Chile. Meanwhile, the Americans and the Colombians, who fell short to the aforementioned teams, will now battle it out for third place in the consolation game.

Argentina made short work of the United States, showing no mercy in a 4-0 beating of the hosts in Houston. Lionel Messi was the architect, assisting on a pair of goals while scoring his 55th on a free kick to break the all-time scoring record for his country. The win sent the Argentinean side to the Copa America final for the fourth time in five tournaments.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Chile jumped on Colombia with two early goals, then had to ride out a two-hour weather delay to book their passage to the final. Charles Aranguiz and Jose Pedro Fuenzalida scored within the first 11 minutes of the game, while Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo made a few key saves. Chile is aiming to become the first team to repeat as Copa America champions since Brazil in 2004 and 2007.

The United States will play Colombia for third place in Glendale on Saturday, and a win would give the Americans their best finish in four appearances at the Copa America. Colombia, who won as the tournament host in 2001, has finished third or better four times, but not since that win. The Americans would also like to avenge a 2-0 loss to Colombia in the opening game of this tournament in which James Rodriguez and Cristian Zapata scored against the hosts. Colombia is a +135 favourite while USA comes in at +185 and the draw at +250. Colombia has three wins and one draw in their last five meetings with the United States.

Chile will have a chance to redeem the 1-2 loss to Argentina from the Group Stage matchup when they meet again for the final on Sunday in East Rutherford. Angel di Maria and Ever Banega got on the scoresheet for Argentina and Messi was held out for the Group Stage win. Meanwhile Fuenzalida replied late for the defending champions. Argentina is a sizable -140 favourite for this game with Chile a +400 underdog, and the draw is pegged at +260.

Di Maria sat out against the Americans, but he should be back for this final matchup, while Chile will be getting Arturo Vidal back after he sat out against Colombia because of yellow cards. Argentina has won both games with Chile since losing to them in the final last year, but a win on Sunday would be the ultimate revenge for them.

Going into the final games of the tournament, Chile's Eduardo Vargas still leads all scorers with six goals; Messi has five goals and Argentina teammate Gonzalo Higuain has four. Messi leads all players with four assists, followed by Clint Dempsey of the United States with three.
