Our Prediction:

Colombia will win

Colombia – Chile Match Prediction | 12-10-2019 12:00

As always, all eyes will be on Alexis Sanchez when the two teams meet in Sao Paulo and we predict that El Nino Maravilloso is going to help the Chileans hold Colombia to a draw in 90 minutes. La Roja, on the other hand, made it to the knockout stages despite suffering a loss to Uruguay in their last group game.

Colombia coach Carlos Queiroz rested several first-team regulars in a 1-0 win over Paraguay, but the Portuguese tactician is likely to field the best possible side against Chile. Los Cafeteros aim to keep their 100% record intact at the tournament in Brazil and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the process. There will be fireworks when Colombia and Chile face each other at Arena Corinthians in the 2019 Copa America quarter-finals.

The nominal hosts qualified for the quarterfinals after a flawless group phase. As a result, they finished second on the table. Moreover, they kept a clean sheet in all three games! Since the Reinaldo Ruedas squad is the reigning South American champion, the Mighty Tips experts suggest backing them to win the upcoming game. The visiting side lost the match after a series of four games without a defeat in all competitions. They defeated Argentina, Qatar and Paraguay. The provisional visitors were defeated in their third match against Uruguay. Furthermore, the home side was defeated only once in their last eleven matches in all competitions. In the first two rounds, they easily defeated Japan 4:0 and Ecuador 2:1.

Cards & Corners

On top of that, their depth has been impressive, as was shown in their group finale victory. That costs them as Colombia finally beat them again and oust them from the tourney. They have looked good in both attack and defence, and their midfield also appears to be very much settled. Expert Verdict: So far, Colombia have looked like the most complete team in the tournament. Chile are a good side, but they have too many miles on their wheels on this point.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in the last three meetings between these two clubs and over 2.5 goals have been produced in four of Swindons and three of Macclesfields last six matches. When these two teams clash they usually produce goals, especially in recent seasons, and the pair have been involved in a large amount of goals-filled games during the last month or so.

Were expecting goals in this game as these two sides like to attack and havent been keeping many clean sheets of late. As mentioned above, these two clubs have never drawn before but both teams are offering us plenty of reasons to back a stalemate this weekend, and there has to be a first time for everything. Were confident that over 2.5 goals will be scored in Saturdays clash and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-2.

They had been looking better, as if they had bounced back from their wobbles of the last few years, but they were wins against teams that ended up being eliminated. Chile come into this match after finishing Group C as the second place side, having given up a goal in the final ten minutes of the match when they would have went through as group winners with a draw. In their last year, they have five wins, two draws, and four losses. Unfortunately for them, they were unable to hold off Uruguay and now face a tougher task against Colombia.

The Colombian ace impressed at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and, as a result, Real Madrid chiefs signed him on 22 July, 2014 for an undisclosed fee. His transfer to the Ligue 1 side was the second most expensive in the history of Portuguese Primeira Liga (45 million) and he signed a five-year contract with les Rouges et Blancs. James scored 25 goals in 63 league appearances with the Dragons and in 2013 he joined Monaco.

Ever since then theyve been taking the necessary steps towards proving what theyre really capable of, which has led to a really strong group stage in this years Copa America tournament. Colombia seem to hold the distinction of being a popular second team for many international football fans, but unfortunately for them, that wasnt enough to lift them past England in last years 2018 FIFA World Cup. Now, all they need to do is follow the same protocol theyve implemented in all of their games thus far.

Chile has to look for early goals in order to keep Colombians under pressure. The match remained goalless for a very long time until the only goal was scored by Uruguays Edinson Cavani at the 82nd-minute. Both the team were able to take 3 shots each on target but only one goal hit the net and it was scored by Uruguay.

The most capped player of the Chile national team is Barcelona goalkeeper who has past his 100-match mark with the squad he has been a part of since 2004. Chile triumphed in a dramatic final on penalty kicks to reach their first tournament championship. Prior to their 2015 title Chile had been runners-up in the competition on four different occasions. In a symbolic turn of events, Chile start their 2016 Copa America Centenario with a rematch against Argentina.

Today's Tips

If he cant play- or play at his best if he does- then they dont have much of a chance. Vidal is the other man to keep a watch on here. While he may well be, hes going to have to be a notch above that to get them over the line again in this tournament. Thats the job of Alexis Sanchez, who has looked reinvigorated for country. Much of Colombias success has been due to a strong defence, and that means the task of breaking them down will be a very tough one. Sure, hes not able to carry the same pace as the days of old, but his passion and experience can be a massive boon for them here.
