Argentina is the current top-ranked team on the planet, but the last time they played at Copa America, they were beaten in the finals by Chile. La Albiceleste have a chance at revenge Monday night, as they take on the defending champions in the most-anticipated match of the opening round.

Here’s a look at all the betting information you need to know, along with a prediction for this matchup:

Chile rode home-field advantage at Copa America 2015, but they won’t have the same support in Santa Clara. La Roja have been a mediocre team in CONMEBOL qualifying the past year, and have won just once in their last six games heading into the tournament.

Back in March, Argentina bested Chile 2-1 in World Cup qualifying. Chile took the lead on a Felipe Gutierrez goal, but Argentina scored twice in the next 14 minutes to wrest the match back for good.

Of course the status of Lionel Messi will factor in the game’s outcome, but Argentina have the depth to win without him. If he sits this one out, the goals could go to Aguero or Higuain, valued to score anytime at +175 and +200 respectively.

In a group with Panama and Bolivia, Chile are likely to advance regardless of tonight’s outcome. It’s always nice to start with a win, but Chile could use this game to experiment with tactics, knowing they could see Argentina later on in the tournament. I’m picking Argentina to sweep Group D, so this one’s an easy call.

Prediction: 2-0 Argentina

Best Bet: Argentina scores exactly 2 goals at +265
