Colombia vs Chile Prediction
Chile enters this game on a four-game winless in the sequence. Colombia continues a trend that has seen five of their last six games produce under 2.5 goals in the schedule. Also, with the previous two meetings between Colombia and Chile finishing goalless within 90 minutes.
Alongside that, four of Colombia’s last five friendly draws ending 0-0, this game looks set to continue that low-scoring trend. Evidently, the player under the spotlight in the home team, with both James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao are out of contention, will be the Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado. The duo will be sorely missed in the next fixture.
Besides that, both Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal are likely to start for la Roja which makes more hope for a better play at the stranger ground. Hence, with the squad strength, the teams are plighting towards a draw or we can expect Cuadrado to step up for the home team in securing their win.
Even though their h2h clashes have stated their favor to unbeaten Chile in recent times, their individual performances say otherwise. As said, the host has not lost in the last five home ties while Chile has two losses and only two wins in the previous five away fixtures. This shows that the home team has better composure in the home ground. And the host is winless in the last three trips on the road.
As such, there are mere chances for the game to go into a draw or be solemnly won by the hosting contingent. Also, we can expect it to be a low scoring affair as their previous h2h clashes. It will be safer to go with a double chance in the encounter.
