Chile - Peru predictions and free betting tips [13/10/2023]
On Friday Chile, within the 3rd round of the CONMEBOL World Cup final qualifiers, will host Peru at Monumental David Arellano stadium in Santiago.
Chile: Cortes; Catalan, Medel, Maripan, Suazo; Aranguiz, Pulgar, Nunez; Valdes, Sanchez, Brereton Diaz.
Peru: Gallese; Corzo, Advincula, Abram, Trauco; Yotun, Tapia; Carrillo, Gonzales, Polo; Guerrero.
Chile is situated at the 8th place in the tournament's table with only 1 point after 2 rounds – loss against Uruguay 1:3 and a draw with Colombia 0:0. The head coach Eduardo Berizzo employs a 4-2-3-1 formation. Level-wise, the "red team" can't live up to South American top teams, the leaders have aged and the youth is not ending up in top European clubs.
However, the team frequently has bad luck, with referees cancelling goals, as it happened in the match against Colombia. The key player of the national team remains Arturo Vidal, who has significantly declined over the past few years. Although he can no longer dominate the midfield, he continues to negatively influence the dressing room and clash with the coaching staff. Fans have high hopes for Brereton, who has yet to live up to expectations.
Peru is going through a generation shift crisis, the team has only 1 point – a draw with Paraguay 0:0 and a loss against Brazil 0:1. The team is led by Juan Reynoso, who uses a 4-4-2 formation. In the match against the Brazilians, the Peruvians decided to use the services of shamans, but that didn't help – Neymar scored his goal. Due to a high amount of injuries, Reynoso is obligated to rotate the team. The aged Guerrero continues to play in the attack – he is already 39. On the road, the "Incas" are not at their best, grabbing the lion's share of points at their home stadium.
The rivals have held 83 matches against each other, with Chile having 45 victories and 24 losses. In the last 4 face-to-face matches, only one team has managed to score.
