Our match prediction:
It has been more than 15 years Chile was able to beat Brazil. On Thursday night Brazil will visit La Roja in Estadio Nacional to start the World Cup 2018 qualifiers. Copa America winner Chile is currently in their best form ever: Alexis Sanchez humiliated Manchester United whilst other key player Arturo Vidal is playing decent games week in week out with Bayern Munich. Neymar is suspended which will be a big loss for Brazil. If Chile is able to put the Brazil defense under high pressure the Chileans will be able to break history and beat Brazil.
