Match preview

Brazil have stormed their way to qualification for the 2022 World Cup, undefeated so far in 15 games. In the CONMEBOL region, they have the most wins with 12, seven goals scored more than any other side with 32 and have also conceded the fewest with only five against.

This all means they have already guaranteed qualification and either a first or second-place finish in the group with three games remaining. Should they win this match against Chile and their upcoming trip to Bolovia, they will finish top of the group irrespective of the result of their rearranged match against second-placed Argentina.

Chile, on the other hand, needs to win this match to ensure their destiny stays in their own hands. They currently sit outside the qualification and playoff places three points behind Uruguay and two behind Peru. However, with those two nations facing each at the same time as this match, Chile will have hope of being able to reel one of them in.

The Red Ones have a home match against Uruguay for their final group game on Tuesday 29th March which could become a winner takes all match for World Cup qualification.

Looking specifically at this head to head, La Roja fans will be hoping this will be their time to finally secure a victory on Brazilian soil. Their only ‘away’ win against Brazil was a 0-4 hammering in the group stage of the 1987 Copa America in Argentina.

The Little Canary were 0-1 winners in the reverse fixture in Chile back in September with Éverton Ribeiro scoring the game’s only goal mid-way through the second half. With the Brazilians having secured their qualification, there is a possibility they take their foot off the gas here.

However, here in Brazil, the expectation is never to merely succeed but to also entertain. The Brazilian public will be expecting the players to prove they are deserving of the shirt, especially with new players coming off the talented conveyor belt every year waiting to replace whoever doesn’t look up to the task.

One such player is Gabriel Martinelli. The 20-year-old Arsenal forward has received his first call up to the international side and faces the unenviable task of taking minutes off of Neymar. Neymar (pictured below) will want to be on the pitch every minute of every game as he continues to chase down Pele’s record of 77 goals for his country. With 10 goals since the start of 2019, his goalscoring has slowed a little making the target of eight more goals for his country no longer the sure thing it once appeared.

Brazil team news

Russian-based duo Claudinho and Malcolm were not called up for this squad. The pair were called up earlier in the qualifying campaign but returned early to Russia due to pressure from their club, Zenit St. Petersburg, and have since been out of favour with Tite. With the ongoing war in Ukraine, it is unclear if the pair would have been able to travel for the matches had they been called up by Seleção.

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has been left in England. The forward has struggled with fitness this season and made a goalscoring return from injury against Arsenal last Thursday. Emerson Royal’s return for Brazil lasted all of 20 minutes after the Spurs player was sent off in January. He has also been excluded from this squad.

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Manchester City), Weverton (Palmeiras)

Chile team news

There is no place in the squad for the experienced Eugenio Mena. The 33-year-old defender who plies his trade these days for Racing Club in Argentina was called up in February to face Bolivia but hasn’t been included this time around. Watford defender, Francisco Sierralta, has also been excluded this time around.

Midfielders César Pinares, Tomás Alarcón and Pablo Galdames miss out on a call up this time. Former Manchester United forward Ángelo Henríquez hasn’t done enough in recent performances for Fortaleza in Brazil to catch the eye. Fabián Orellana, Edson Puch and Ángelo Sagal are three experienced names missing in the Chile forward lineup.
