Serbia vs Chile – International Friendly: Serbia and Chile face off this Monday on an international friendly before the World Cup.
The match will be played at the Merkur Arena in Graz, in Austria, at 19:00 (London time). The two national teams come with different motivations and flavours into this friendly.
While Serbia will play their first friendly heading into the 2018 World Cup, Chile on the other hand is going through a hangover by not having qualified to the World Cup.
Even with all the quality at their disposal and players like Vidal, Sanchez and others, Chile failed on the South-American qualifiers and was left out, not even managing to go to the play-offs.
When we look onto Chile’s team, it’s hard to imagine how the team was left out of the 2018 World Cup.
Furthermore, it is weird considering that they are the current 2-time champions of the Copa America against Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and the usual local giants.
But Chile made a lot of mistakes on those qualifiers and with that they were left out.
And exactly because of that, they are on a period of reformulation with the arrival of the manager Renato Rueda, ex-Flamengo, to lead the team.

Serbia vs Chile – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Let’s remind that Rueda already took Honduras and Ecuador onto the latest World Cups and exactly because of that, he was the chosen manager.
As for Serbia, they managed to qualify to the World Cup. They have a very technical roster and with players from the top European clubs, the team can always surprise. For this friendly, I believe more on the Serbian team.
By looking at the list of called-up players by Chile, we see that their main players are out of that list. Rueda is trying out some new players.
Against a Serbia in maximum strength and starting their World Cup preparation, I believe the European team will win.
