Colombia and Chile face off on Thursday in a CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying game at . Estadio Metropolitano. These two teams last faced off on October of 2020 and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
Colombia currently sit in 5th place in the standings having picked up 10 points on the season. Colombia has played to at least a draw in each of their last five games, including each of the last two games that ended 1-1. In the last game against Paraguay, they had 20 shots and seven on goal, but only one went in the back of the net. That goal was scored by Juan Cuardrado on a penalty kick in the 53rd minute. Colombia does a good job of creating scoring chances, they just need to do a better job of finishing on those chances.
On the other side of this matchup is Chile who sit in 8th place in the standings having picked up seven points. The biggest issue for Chile has been with the offense and they haven’t scored a goal in any of their last four games. In the last game against Ecuador, Chile had an extra player for the last 30 minutes, but they still couldn’t find a way to get any offense going and that led to a draw. Chile did manage three shots on goal, but in this game, they are going to need to find a way to get the offense going. If they don’t create more scoring chances, they will struggle to win this game.
Chile isn’t a good offensive team, and they are going to struggle to score again in this game. I also don’t believe Colombia is going to run up the score and the under will cash. I also will be throwing a few dollars on the exact score of 0-0.
