Brazil will be looking to keep the perfect record on home soil in this World Cup Qualifying term on Thursday evening when they host Chile in the penultimate round of the competition.

Selecao have secured the qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar long time ago as they have cruised past their rivals to a brilliant record of 12 wins and 3 draws in 15 outings so far.

Tite’s troops have been especially impressive in their own backyard where they have won all seven matches so far with a surreal goal difference of 19-1 in the process.

The Brazilians destroyed Paraguay 4-0 on the home patch in the previous round to end a two-draw run (to second-placed Argentina and third-placed Ecuador).

Raphinha, Coutinho, Antony, and Rodrygo were on target for Tite’s squad on the occasion. The Brazilian have conceded only five goals so far in the campaign and they will be a very tough nut to crack for Chile as well on Thursday.

The visitors are having a disappointing run in this qualifying term. They will hardly book a ticket to Qatar 2022 with the fixtures against the likes of Brazil and Uruguay remaining.

Chile are sixth at the moment, sitting three points shy of fourth-placed Uruguay and two points below Peru in fifth.

Martin Lasarte’s men did manage back-to-back away wins over Paraguay and Bolivia in the previous two away fixtures but these results will count for little when they come across the Brazilians here.

Brazil vs Chile Head-to-head

  • Chile have rarely done well against Brazil over the course of history.
  • Brazil will go into this on the back of five wins and two draws in the last seven encounters with the Chileans.
  • Only one of the last six H2H meetings between the two teams provided three or more goals.

Brazil vs Chile Prediction

The gulf in quality between these two rivals is enormous at the moment and we can hardly see any other scenario but an easy clean-sheet win for Brazil.

Since Brazil shipped only one goal in seven home fixtures in the current qualifying term, we see great value in backing the hosts to win to nil at the 2.20 odds.

Brazil vs Chile Betting Tips

  • Brazil to win to nil @ 2.20 (6/5)
  • HT/FT Brazil/Brazil @ 2.20 (6/5) odd.
