Chile – Bolivia Match Preview

  • Chile notched an encouraging point vs Argentina in their recent World Cup qualification (WCQ) match and could climb into the top-four with victory here. In turn, Martín Lasarte remains unbeaten in his fledgling tenure as Chile boss (W1, D1), and seemingly primed to build on Chile’s excellent historic H2H record in WCQ clashes (W9, D2, L3 – including one awarded game).
  • Since the current qualification format began back in March 2000, Chile have (if excluding walkovers) seen 15 of their previous 22 WCQ home wins (68.18%) come by a 2+ goal margin. The last six of those victories saw La Roja’s opening brace separated by no more than 20 minutes, while two thirds (ten) of the 15 wins ended either 2-0 or 3-1.
  • After failing to qualify for the last six World Cups, Bolivia risk being cut adrift from the pack with defeat, though they’ve earned their entire four-point haul in the last two games (W1, D1). However, the lowest ranked CONMEBOL nation (#81) are still yet to keep a clean sheet in this campaign.
  • Bolivia came from behind to avoid defeat in their last WCQ away game, but they remain winless in any away qualifier under the post-2000 format (D6, L40 – including walkovers). They must be wary of letting frustration overcome them, especially with a red card being shown in three (60%) of the last five WCQ H2Hs.
  • Players to watch: Talismanic Chile forward Alexis Sánchez averaged a goal contribution in 65.22% of his WCQ appearances (17 goals, 13 assists), with each of his last seven goalscoring WCQ matches (W4, D2, L1) seeing both teams score. Meanwhile, Bolivia’s Marcelo Moreno has scored in four of five WCQ games so far, netting two openers.
  • Hot stat: Chile led at HT in all six prior WCQ home H2Hs prior to a walkover win vs Bolivia in September 2016.
