The Chilean team still hasn’t ensured their qualification for the World Cup, so they are still at risk.
With Argentina, Ecuador and even Paraguay out at the moment, Chile has a slight advantage and it is essential for them to win this match to stay in the qualifying spots, and gain some ground over the contenders.
Chile has been strong at home, winning 5 of the 7 matches they played, with only 1 loss and 1 draw.
They have won their last 3 home matches and they played good football on those matches.
Chile has Alexis and Vidal as their key players, but Vargas has also been important so far, and the team relies on them to help them take an important step towards the 2018 World Cup.
Paraguay: The situation isn’t easy for Paraguay at the moment.
The team is currently out of the qualification spots for the World Cup and if they lose this match, it will be almost impossible for them to attend the World Cup.
Paraguay has been inconsistent in this qualification stage. For example, they won 1-0 at Argentina, but then lost in Bolivia 1-0 and 1-4 at home against Peru.
Paraguay has some good players, but they are not favourites to win against Chile and they have a weaker squad.
However, if they won in Argentina, they will surely have the ambition to win at Chile as well, and that is their mindset.
Chile vs Paraguay Betting Tip and Prediction:
Chile will play at home, in front of a packed stadium full of their fierce fans, and this is a very important match, where they cannot fail.
Chile has been fairly consistent at home, being really strong and I believe that they will take control of this match and be able to build a good win over Paraguay.
If they win, they will kill two birds with one stone: they will reaffirm their position among the qualifying spots and they will put Paraguay almost out of the race for one of those spots.
In a week where Uruguay and Argentina will face off, winning this match is fundamental, because there is still a lot to come in the final matchdays, and Chile will want to secure their spot as soon as possible.
Chile, from what they’ve been playing at home and looking at the quality of their roster, should win this match by more than a 1-goal margin.
