On the upcoming Wednesday, the teams of the South American qualifying group of the 2018 World Cup will play the last 18th round. One of the central matches of the matchday will be a game between the national teams of Brazil and Chile. The Brazilians lack tournament motivation, but the team will fight for their honor, while the Chileans desperately need points.
The national team of Brazil managed to gain 38 points in their asset after 17 played rounds in 2018 WC qualification. The Brazilians’ closest followers, the national team of Uruguay have 28 points. Throughout the tournament, the future hosts lost only one game, in the first round to the Chilean team with the score of 0:2. Neymar and co probably remember the loss and will put maximum effort to get a persuasive revenge against the Reds.
The national team of Chile is situated on the third position in the peloton of the South American qualification, the future guests have 26 points in the asset. The same amount of points have Colombia, one point less have Peru and Argentina and two less for Paraguay. A victory in the match against Brazil will secure the Reds participation in the WC final part, and under any other circumstances the results of the parallel matches will be crucial. The Chileans have had eight away encounters: two victories over Peru and Venezuela, a draw with Colombia, everything else are losses.
The Brazil national team plays great at their home ground and at the tournament in general, the qualification winners want to competition on a positive note. Pentacampeones motivation is present, as in the first round, the Chileans were impertinent enough to defeat the Yellow-Blues at their home ground, so a grudge match is expected.
Prediction for the match: Brazil to win
