Chile host Colombia in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Wednesday. La Roja have been struggling to win, can they hold a confident Colombia in Santiago de Chile?

Chile Form


Chile finished fourth at the 2019 Copa America. La Roja lost 3-0 against Peru in the semi-finals and 2-1 against Argentina in the 3rd place playoff.

Reinaldo Rueda’s side played four friendlies in September and October 2019, two draws and a defeat followed with a 3-2 win against Guinea.

Chile fell to a 2-1 loss against Uruguay in their opening 2022 World Cup qualifier. Alexis Sánchez equalised in the second half but they conceded in added time in a disappointing result.

Arturo Vidal and Charles Aránguiz lead the way in central midfield with the attack led by Alexis Sánchez and Eduardo Vargas.

Colombia Form


Colombia won all three matches at the 2019 Copa America group stage. They were eliminated in a penalty shootout against Chile after the quarter-final match ended 0-0.

Carlos Queiroz’s side played six friendlies in late 2019. They drew the first three against Brazil, Venezuela and Chile, lost 3-0 against Algeria but bounced back with 1-0 wins against Peru and Ecuador.

Colombia got the 2022 World Cup qualifiers started with a 3-0 win against Venezuela. Duván Zapata scored in the 16th minute and Luis Muriel added two before half-time.

Colombia Team News


Right-back Santiago Arias suffered a bad injury against Venezuela. He is likely to be replaced by Stefan Medina.

Experienced goalkeeper David Ospina was not called up with Camilo Vargas lining up in goal against Venezuela. Premier League duo Davinson Sánchez and Yerry Mina from a strong central defence.

Duván Zapata and Luis Muriel will be hard to dislodge up front with Radamel Falcao and Alfredo Morelos other options. Flair comes from Juan Cuadrado and James Rodríguez.

Defenders: Jeison Murillo, Davinson Sánchez, Yerry Mina, Frank Fabra, Stefan Medina, Johan Mojica, Jhon Lucumí, Gabriel Fuentes

Chile vs Colombia Match Up


Chile’s defence appears weak on paper with Sebastián Vegas and Francisco Sierralta occupying central defence in Uruguay. Nicolás Díaz and Paulo Díaz started in defence with Enzo Roco coming off the bench, hardly inspiring choices.

Much will rely on experienced players Arturo Vidal, Charles Aránguiz, Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sánchez.

Colombia have a stronger team on paper with Premier League trio Davinson Sánchez, Yerry Mina and James Rodríguez all set to start. They have a formidable attack with Duván Zapata and Luis Muriel currently ending out Radamel Falcao and Alfredo Morelos.
