- Argentina pushed and probed until the final stages
Argentina and Chile played out a 1-1 draw with goals from Lionel Messi and Alexis Sanchez cancelling each other out, EKO HOT BLOG gathered.
The result sees Argentina in second position in the World Cup qualifying table with 11 points in 5 games.
Chile, on the other hand, are in 7th position with 5 points in 5 games and will need to start picking up a few victories in their upcoming matches.
In what was a rusty display from both teams, Argentina looked more dominant in the opening stages of the game and got the perfect opportunity to take the lead in the 24th minute when they were awarded a penalty.
VAR adjudged it to be a foul by Maripan on Lautaro Martinez and Lionel Messi made no mistake from the spot as he coolly dispatched the penalty.
Chile soon equalized through Alexis Sanchez, who was in the right place at the right time to tap in Gary Medel’s cut back.
Argentina pushed and probed until the final stages, but an inspired display from Claudio Bravo ensured the visitors walked away with a point from this game.
