Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
There will be fireworks when Chile and Brazil square off against each other in Santiago de Chile in the South America World Cup qualifier. The Selecao aim to bounce back from a heart-breaking Copa America final defeat to Argentina, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at La Roja. Premier League stars Thiago Silva, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Ederson, Alisson, Firmino, Fabinho, Raphinha, and Fred miss out due to the Premier League decision not to let players travel to “red-list” countries, with the likes of Everson, Miranda, Edenilson, Gerson, Nunes, Malcom, Vinicius, and Hulk receiving late call-ups.
As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Neymar, who returned to PSG’s starting XI at the weekend. Chile, on the other hand, will be without Inter ace Alexis Sanchez, who remains on the sidelines with injury. Anyhow, given the number of absentees in the away team, the share of spoils is on the cards at Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos.
Highlighted Player (Alexis Sanchez):
Alexis Sanchez is a Chilean football player born on 19th of December 1988. Sanchez started playing football for Cobreloa and played for Colo Colo, River Plate, Udinese and FC Barcelona before he started playing for Arsenal in 2014. The Chilean player is active for the national team as well.

Alexis Sanchez’ nickname was give by the Colo Colo fans and is El Nino Maravila which literally means The Wonder Kid. In 2014-2015 Alexis Sanchez was placed in the PFA team of the year and got nominated as Player of the year.
Highlighted Team (Brazil):
One of the most decorated teams in world football, Selecao have also been regarded as one of the most attractive and exciting teams with glowing reputation preceding them. Members of the CONMEBOL confederation, Brazil have played their first international in 1914 losing to bitter rivals Argentina with a comfortable 3-0 margin.
Brazil is the most successful nation in the FIFA World Cup with five championship title to their name. However, Selecao failed to advance past the quarter-finals of the last two tournaments last winning their World Cup in 2002. Their last title was the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and the star-studded team will be looking to get back to winning ways at this year’s historic Copa America Centenario in the United States.
Legendary Pele is Brazil’s top scorer with 77 goals to his name, while the team’s biggest star of the modern era Barcelona forward Neymar is sitting in fifth place having so far netted 46.
