Chile vs Paraguay Preview


Goals are neither sides' forte of late. I can see this petering out into a 0-0 draw.

Head to Head


In 21 previous meetings, Chile have won 10 and Paraguay eight along with three draws. The last encounter ended 0-0 in November last year.

Chile Form


Chile return to Santiago for their first home fixture since their stalemate against Paraguay last November. Since that result, the Chileans fell to away losses against Ecuador (1-0) in a World Cup qualifying fixture and France (3-2) in a friendly in Marseille earlier this year. 

Chile failed to win seven of their last nine matches, although they did perform well in recent European friendlies. After a strong performance in the 3-2 loss against the aforementioned French, Ricardo Gareca’s side secured a 3-0 win against Euro 2024 participants Albania. 

La Roja have a decent home record, which sees them unbeaten in their last six home fixtures over the past 15 months. 

Chile Squad & News


Goalkeepers: Claudio Bravo (captain), Brayan Cortés, Gabriel Arias
Defenders: Mauricio Isla, Guillermo Maripán, Paulo Díaz, Gabriel Suazo, Igor Lichnovsky, Matías Catalán, Felipe Loyola, Thomas Galdames
Midfielders: Erick Pulgar, Diego Valdés, Marcelino Núñez, Rodrigo Echeverría, Darío Osorio, César Pérez
Forwards: Alexis Sánchez (vice-captain), Eduardo Vargas, Ben Brereton Díaz, Víctor Dávila, Marcos Bolados, Cristián Zavala, Maximiliano Guerrero

Head coach Ricardo Gareca named a 24-man squad ahead of Chile’s Copa America campaign later this month. Veterans Arturo Vidal and Gary Medel failed to make the final cut after being included in the preliminary selection. 

Inter forward Alexis Sánchez has been included and could win his 163rd cap on Wednesday.

Paraguay Form


Paraguay come into Wednesday’s friendly fixture winless in three matches after a goalless draw against Peru on Saturday. Daniel Garnero's side have now failed to win six of their last seven matches.

Short on attacking fire-power, Paraguay drew blanks in six of their last seven international fixtures over the past nine months. 

The Albirroja have a particularly poor away record, with just one win collected from 18 road matches over the past three years. 

Paraguay Squad & News


Goalkeepers: Carlos Coronel, Alfredo Aguilar, Rodrigo Morínigo
Defenders: Gustavo Gómez, Júnior Alonso, Fabián Balbuena (captain), Omar Alderete, Matías Espinoza, Iván Ramírez, Gustavo Velázquez, Néstor Giménez
Midfielders: Miguel Almirón, Mathías Villasanti, Richard Sánchez, Alejandro Romero Gamarra, Matías Rojas, Andrés Cubas, Hernesto Caballero, Damián Bobadilla, Fabrizio Peralta, Gabriel Aguayo
Forwards: Derlis González, Ángel Romero, Julio Enciso, Ramón Sosa, Adam Bareiro, Alex Arce

Paraguay boss Garnero has a 27-man squad available for Wednesday’s friendly in Santiago. 

Premier League-based duo Miguel Almirón and Julio Enciso are both likely to feature in the Paraguayan starting XI. 

Verdict

A low-scoring outcome seems likely in Tuesday’s friendly fixture.

I’m backing under 2.5 goals scored in what is likely to be a tight contest in Santiago.
