Lionel Messi Argentina Copa America 2015
Argentina will bank on some magic from Lionel Messi to help them to the title when they play Chile in the Copa America 2015 finalReuters

Chile and Argentina, countries with varied histories and pedigree, will have just one aim come Saturday at the Estadio Nacional in Santiago – the Copa America 2015 title.

Argentina have been there and done it before a few times in the past, but not for the last 22 years, while Chile are aiming for their first ever Copa America crown.

What better way than to win a maiden title than at your home ground in front of your home fans – that, at least will be what Chile will be looking at going into this should-be-a-spectacular Copa America 2015 final.

Jorge Sampaoli's side lit up the World Cup with their fast-paced, unrelenting, pressing game, and while Chile have not exactly been at their best at this Copa America, luck and grit have seen them through to the final.

If they can produce one of those never-giving-the-opponents-a-second's-breath performances in the final against Argentina, then Chile might just walk away with their first Copa America title.

"We never have fear with any team," Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo said. "We have the maximum respect for all national teams. The feeling which is not only mine, but of all my teammates, is of great happiness to see that the work we are doing is on track.

"By continuing the style of play we had under [former manager Marcelo] Bielsa we have always tried to capture the idea that Chile play as equals with any team. We are prepared, we know how he have to play. We have always tried to play and suffocate with our pressing."

If any team is capable of getting out of the pressing and finding space with the right passes, it certainly is Argentina. In Lionel Messi they have arguably the best player in the world, with the Barcelona wonder finally coming to the fore for his team in the semifinal against Paraguay, which the Albiceleste won 6-1.

If Messi gets into the mood, and with the likes of Angel Di Maria and Sergio Aguero by his side -- not to mention Gonzalo Higuain and Carlos Tevez on the bench -- then Argentina will overwhelm Chile.

"Our strength lies in our squad," Bravo added. "We will try to ensure every member does his job and that means neutralising Messi. But not only him - Argentina's players are world class. We have to worry about all of them, not just Messi.

The hosts, though, will hope their own band of superstars, led by Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal, come to the party in this final. Sanchez is the kind of talent who can create a goal out of nothing, and if Eduardo Vargas also continues his outstanding form in this Copa America, Chile will give Argentina a real run for their money.

Argentina, having lost to an extra time goal to Germany in the World Cup a year ago, will not want to suffer another heartbreak, and that determination could just prove to be the difference between success and failure in this miss-it-and-you-will-regret-it final.
