Chile vs Paraguay

, KO: 01:00 Jun 12, 2024, Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos
Paraguay

CHILE battle Paraguay in an international friendly on Wednesday with both teams gearing up for the Copa America later this month. Neither side has been at their best lately but Chile have claimed the upper hand in recent meetings and should have the edge at home.

Wednesday’s clash will be the first warm up game for Chile ahead of the Copa America having suffered a 3-2 defeat to France back in March. Ricardo Gareca’s men have found things difficult lately, claiming just one win from their last five matches.

The good news for Chile is that Wednesday's friendly will be at home where they are unbeaten in their last six matches, claiming four wins in that run. They also try to maintain their defensive discipline in front of their fans and have kept clean sheets in their last five home matches.

Paraguay are coming off a drab 0-0 draw with Peru in their last international friendly. There was little goalmouth actually as the Paraguayans lacked the cutting edge with the few chances they got.

That result highlights Paraguay’s recent form as they have picked up just two wins from their last 10 matches. The problem for Daniel Garnero’s side is that they often struggle in attack having failed to win six of their last seven matches.

How the bookies view it: Chile the favourites

Chile have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 17/20 by bet365 to claim the win. An unlikely victory for Paraguay is valued at 31/10 while a draw is set at odds of 12/5.

Recent head to head: Chile with recent advantage

Chile have come out on top in recent matches against Paraguay, claiming three wins and a draw in the last four matches. The only draw in that run came in November as both teams battled to a 0-0 scoreline.

Players to watch: Sanchez still pivotal

Alexis Sanchez remains as pivotal as ever for Chile and will be the one to watch on Wednesday. The forward has scored in two of the last three meetings with Paraguay and with Ben Brereton Diaz also in attack, the Chileans could be set to produce over 1.5 goals at 11/10 with bet365.

Chile are often defensively solid whenever they play at home, keeping clean sheets six of the last seven matches. Igor Lichnovsky and Pablo Diaz have a solid partnership at centre-back and can lead the Chileans to another clean sheet at 6/5 by bet365.

Probable line-ups

Alexis Sanchez should feature in attack once again for Chile while Ben Brereton Diaz could also be given the nod to lead the line ahead of Eduardo Vargas.

Paraguay are likely to retain a similar backline to the one that faced Peru with Fabian Balbuena and Omar Alderete maintaining their central defensive partnership. Julio Enciso could be given a run-out in attack having come off the bench last time out.

Chile: Bravo, Isla, Lichnovsky, Diaz, Suazo, Echeverria, Nunez, Sanchez, Osorio, Davila, Brereton Diaz
Paraguay: Velazquez, Balbuena, Alderete, Alonso, Villasanti, Cubas, Alison, Enciso, Rojas, Arce

Anything else catch the eye?

Given Chile’s defensive record at home and with Paraguay struggling in attack, BTTS NO could be on the cards at 8/11 with bet365. The Chileans’ recent performances in this fixture means a win to nil could also be considered at 7/4 with bet365.

Chile have more quality going forward and could be backed to score in both halves at 12/5 with bet365.
