It’s an absolute South American classic as Brazil takes on Chile in the first round of direct elimination battles in the 2010 World Cup. Of course, everyone favors Brazil to take an easy win here and go through, but our Brazil vs Chile prediction is for a balanced match in which both sides will have plenty of chances.
Brazil had a goalless draw against Portugal in their last game, but that’s a single point was all they needed then in order to clinch the top stop in the Group of Death. Chile on the other hand went through another difficult group with the Euro Champs from Spain in it. They have been playing really well so far, being very dynamic in attack.
Chile are a fast paced side that will present a stern test to Brazil. Both sides know each other way too well, as they are always against one another in the qualifications for the World Cup. What’s super interesting here is that Brazil has won 7 straight games against Chile! Take a look at their results in recent years:
10-09-2009 WC Qualifying Brazil 4 – 2 Chile
08-09-2008 WC Qualifying Chile 0 – 3 Brazil
07-07-2007 Copa America Chile 1 – 6 Brazil
01-07-2007 Copa America Brazil 3 – 0 Chile
24-03-2007 Friendly Brazil 4 – 0 Chile
04-09-2005 WC Qualifying Brazil 5 – 0 Chile
08-07-2004 Copa America Brazil 1 – 0 Chile
That’s a really interesting statistic which should be carefully considered in order to come up with the best and most accurate Brazil vs Chile Prediction. Basically, 7 wins on the row is a lot against any opponent, which is why we expect Selecao to have a much more difficult task today with the game probably going into Extra Time! The online bookies are tipping Brazil as hot favorites but the odds of 1,50 for them can be quite tricky indeed.
Brazil vs Chile Prediction: Bet On Over 2,5 Goals at 1,95. Brazil will create plenty of chances in this one and Chile is also a dangerous team so both sides shouldn’t have a problem scoring more than 2 goals in this one.
