Argentina and Chile ground out a 0-0 draw on Thursday night in a niggly friendly international between the two South American rivals.
The Albiceleste, missing the suspended Lionel Messi and several other European-based stars including Sergio Agüero and Ángel Di María, enjoyed the better chances but were unable to find a goal in front of a sparsely populated Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Chile, with new Inter Milan signing Alexis Sánchez leading their attack, were similarly uninspired in front of goal.
Thursday's game was the latest instalment of an increasingly bitter rivalry between the two sides who met in both the 2015 and 2016 Copa América finals, won by Chile on each occasion.
Argentina came closest to breaking the deadlock on 23 minutes, Lo Celso releasing Lautaro Martínez on the edge of the area who teed up Paulo Dybala for a shot that was superbly saved by Chile's Manchester City reserve goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.
Chile's best chance of the half came five minutes from half-time, with Aránguiz forcing a save from Porto goalkeeper Agustín Marchesín.
River Plate defender Lucas Martínez Quarta almost gave Argentina the lead in the second half, glancing De Paul's cross just wide.
