Brazil vs. Chile: World Cup 2018 Qualifying Live Stream, Preview

Chile have saved the most difficult task for last in their 2018 World Cup qualification campaign and travel on Wednesday to face Brazil, who sit atop the CONMEBOL standings and already have a place in the finals.

La Roja sit third in the CONMEBOL table with one game left in qualifying but could finish anywhere between second and seventh, with only four points between the two places as things stand. Football writer Samuel Jay C posted the latest standings following the most recent set of South American results:

Brazil are unbeaten in their past four games and will not move from the CONMEBOL summit, where they boast a 10-point cushion, although manager Tite hasn’t shown signs of restricting his squad selection as a result.

The 2014 World Cup runners-up became the first team other than hosts Russia to qualify for next year’s tournament in March. Chile are guaranteed automatic qualification with a win, but anything else could see them fighting for the fourth-place play-off spot—or worse.

Read on for a preview of Wednesday’s climactic CONMEBOL qualification curtain call, complete with fixture details and live-stream information.

Preview

Although it was some seven months ago that Brazil booked their place in next year’s World Cup finals, it’s not in Tite’s style to allow his players to take their foot off the pedal, and recent results have shown that lethal stride.

Chile’s upcoming hosts have suffered three losses in qualifying—three fewer than any other CONMEBOL team—and La Roja’s record of three defeats in their past four outings doesn’t look nearly as intimidating.

However, what’s essential is that Chile ended a recent three-loss streak with a 2-1 victory over Ecuador on Friday, and hero Alexis Sanchez will again be vital to their hopes of toppling Brazil as he was in Santiago
