Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos when Chile and Argentina take on each other in the 2018 World Cup qualifier. The Copa America winners suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Uruguay in their last qualifier and, no doubt, the hosts will fight tooth and nail in order to grab something from Friday’s football match. Alexis Sanchez is undisputedly the team’s key player, meaning that the opposition back line should have him at bay. Argentina have been playing below expectations in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers so far, with the team recording only one win in the process, but it has to be noted that Gerardo Martino’s men proved their worth in a 1-0 win over Colombia on 17 November. Leo Messi has been scoring goals for fun in 2016, meaning that the opposition defenders should find it hard to contain the “Argentine magician”. Anyhow, we predict that both teams will score in a low-scoring affair.
