Chile vs Brazil team news
The hosts are without Ben Brereton Diaz and Francisco Sierralta with both English-based players unable to travel due to coronavirus restrictions.
Brazil are also missing a number of players for the same reason with Alisson, Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Ederson, Gabriel Jesus, Thiago Silva and Richarlison among those prevented from joining up with the squad.
Tite is though able to call upon the services of Real Madrid trio Casemiro, Eder Militao and Vinicius Junior.
Chile vs Brazil preview
Brazil’s defensive solidity in World Cup qualifying over the last year has been extraordinary, with the side keeping five clean sheets in their opening six games.
At the Copa America they managed four shutouts in seven games including against Chile despite playing the second half with 10 men.
Backing the visitors to produce another strong defensive performance appeals against a La Roja team who have underwhelmed in qualifying so far.
Martin Lasarte’s men have managed just one win from their opening six games and look like being in for a difficult time against the competition leaders.
Chile vs Brazil tips & predictions
Brazil are priced at 11/8 (2.38) to keep a clean sheet which looks like an appealing option given their excellent defensive record and their opponents’ less than impressive form.
