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.

Date: Wednesday, October 11

Time: 12:30 a.m. BST (Thurs., Oct. 12)/7:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Allianz Parque, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Live Stream: beIN Sports Connect (U.S.), fuboTV (U.S.)



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


Trinidad and Tobago v USA: World Cup 2018 qualifier How to watch

USA will play Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday night in a big game that could clinch World Cup 2018 qualification for the United States. The game has a scheduled start time of 8 p.m. ET and takes place from the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva, Trinidad & Tobago. The game can be watched on TV on the beIN Sports network or online through live stream (details below).

The United States are in a strong position to qualify for the World Cup to be held in Russia in 2018. Things haven’t always gone as well as they could during the Hex round of CONCACAF qualifying, but the United States now find themselves in a strong position and if they win here tonight they will book their ticket for next year’s World Cup.

However, should the United States stumble here tonight and get anything less than a win they could fall down into the Playoff spots, meaning they would not automatically qualify at this stage, but rather have to go into a Playoff against another nation.

Worst case scenario tonight is that the United States could get eliminated outright. For that to happen they would have to lose against Trinidad & Tobago tonight and Panama and Honduras must both win.

A draw is also likely to see the USA through, however, if they do draw and either Panama or Honduras win then the United States could fall into the Playoff spots.

Bottom line is that tonight the United States will see this as a must win. It’s that simple. They will not want to leave anything up to chance. They won’t want to rely on other results or rely on raising their game again for an elimination Playoff against another desperate nation. Simply a win against Trinidad will ensure them their spot at next year’s World Cup.
