Chile is hosting Peru at Nacional in round 3 in the South American World Cup qualifications.
Chile is in terrible form, and they have won only 1 of their last 8 games, but that game was not in these qualifications. Chile has lost to Uruguay in their first game while tying their second game against Colombia. Chile has had 46% of ball possession in that game, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 3 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. After falling behind early in the game, Chile got back with 2 quick goals close to half time. Colombia put a lot of pressure on Chile in this game, and they were able to tie the game in the 91st minute. This match ended in a 1-1 draw. Sanchez has scored 2 goals for Chile so far, while Vidal added 1 goal. Chile is filled with good players, but only 2 great players, and those are Sanchez and Vidal. Sanchez is a fantastic player, but he was struggling with injuries and hasn’t played a lot of games. Chile also has Claudio Bravo between the posts, but he is at the end of his career, and he is getting slower. Chile is struggling massively, and there are no signs of improvement anytime soon.
Peru is a team with a lot of character, but not a lot of quality. Peru has also won only 1 of their last 8 games, and they are also still without a win in these qualifications. Peru has conceded 6 goals while scoring 4 goals in their first two games. Peru has also conceded 2 red cards in their last game against Brazil. Peru has had only 34% of ball possession in that game, 6 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 0 big chances created, and only 76% of the correct passes. Despite being the weaker team in this game, Peru was leading twice, 1-0 and 2-1, but Brazil tied the score fast, and they had taken the lead in the 83rd minute. Peru has conceded another goal in the 94th minute, and they ended up losing this match 2-4. Peru will be without Zambrano and Caceda for this game because of the red cards. Carilla has scored 3 goals for Peru so far, while Tapia added 1 goal. The two most known players from Peru are Paolo Guerrero and Farfan, but neither of them is at the peak of their form, and their best days are behind them. Peru is in 8th place in the standings, and I don’t think they have the quality to get to the World Cup.
The trends are on Chile’s side, and they are the team with more quality and depth in their roster. Neither Chile nor Peru is playing in good form. I think this will be a rough game where we will see plenty of yellow cards, possibly red cards, and at least 1 penalty kick. Goals were consistent while Chile was playing at home in this matchup, and I will stick with it here.
