Tipster’s Angle

Brazil has done exceptionally well in the qualifiers and has qualified as well. So, they are expected to take this game lightly. It wouldn’t be surprising if this match ends with a 0-0 scoreline.

Tip: Total Goals Under 2.5 @ 1.88

In the last six head-to-head matches, a total of ten goals were scored at an average of 1.67 goals per match. Also, under 2.5 goals were scored in five of those matches. Brazil has seen under 2.5 goals in seven of the last ten matches that they have played across competitions. In the last ten matches that Chile had played across all competitions, under 2.5 goals were scored in five of those matches. Also, under 2.5 goals were scored in three of the last five matches that Chile has played on the road. So, under 2.5 goals are on the cards at 1.88 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.

Tip: Both Teams To Score – No @ 1.61

Brazil managed to score a goal in seven of their last nine matches in the qualifiers, while clean sheets were kept in six of those matches as well. Chile on the other hand has both teams not scoring in six of their last ten matches. Also, in the last six head-to-head matches, both teams failed to score in five of those matches. Even Brazil won the reverse fixture with a 0-1 scoreline. So, either team keeping a clean sheet is likely to happen at 1.61 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


Brazil will play this match without any pressure and might even test their bench strength. But the pressure is on Chile as there are just two matches left for them to make an impact and finish in the top five.
