The Brazil vs Chile international friendly match will be played this Tuesday, November 19, 2013 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. Both teams will likely come into the match with plenty of motivation, due to last week’s friendly matches: Brazil defeated Honduras 5-0, while Chile defeated England 2-0 at Wembley.
The hosts of the 2014 World Cup are on fire, since winning the Confederations Cup, Brazil has won five out of the six friendly matches it has played. Most recently, Brazil crushed Honduras 5-0 in a match disputed in Miami this past Saturday.
Felipe Scolari used the game against Honduras to give some fringe players an opportunity to impress him, and that they did. Robinho made his appearance with Brazil after a two year absence, while Bernard and Willian scored their debut international goals with Brazil.
Against Chile, Scolari will likely rotate some players out in order to give playing time to other players. Thiago Silva, Hernanes, Luiz Gustavo and Ramires will likely get a change to participate in the match against Chile.
Chile, who will be attending the World Cup, are on a roll, as they defeated England last week by a score of 2-0. Chile demonstrated an efficient and speedy football in Wembley, enabling them to come out with a tremendous victory. Overall, Chile has won three out of the last five matches it has played.
Coach Jorge Sampoli will likely line up the same squad that played against England, given that he doesn’t need to test out as many players as Scolari does. Given that these two teams are coming in on great streaks, there is a very good chance that the game in Toronto will be great.
Brazil vs Chile Prediction
Chile have not won any of their last five matches against Brazil, and it won’t be any easier in Toronto, as Brazil appears to be in great form. However, Chile is coming off a tremendous victory in Wembley over a good English squad.
The match will come down to whether Chile can hold off the potent Brazilian attack, and counterattacks with its own speedy strikers. I predict the match will end in an exciting 2-2 draw that will provide plenty of scoring opportunities on both sides.
