What is the difference between memenangkan and memenangi? I am very puzzled

Looks like it is really complicated and a matter of debate. "Memenangkan" is apparently more common. This website has many more details: https://rubrikbahasa.wordpress.com/2016/07/02/memenangkan-dan-memenangi/

Can you explain when I should use "memenangkan", when often simply "menang" will do; and when to use "memenangi"?

Duolingo please explain!? There is another exercise where "... agar kami bisa memenangi perlombaan ini" is correct. Why is memenangi wrong in the current example? Does the word "bisa" make a difference somehow?
