Tip Chile - Argentina
Prediction published on January 25, 2022 at 3:57 PM - Modified on January 25, 2022 at 4:57 PM
Chile are set for a crucial game in the CONMEBOL 2022 World Cup qualifiers when they host South American champions Argentina on Match Day 15. The two sides meet at the height of contrasting fortunes; Chile, sixth in the standings, have 16 points and in real danger of missing out while Argentina, second with 29 points, have already qualified. It hasn’t been a great run for Chile in the qualifiers; they've managed just four wins in the 14 matches they’ve played in the qualifiers. While they still have matches to curve their own destiny, dropping points here would be very costly for Chile. They are a point below Colombia and Peru, who occupy the fourth and fifth places tied on 17 points and Chile will be counting on a stroke of fortune as well. In their last qualification game, they suffered a 2-0 loss at home to Ecuador and will hope they can recover here.
Argentina are among the 13 teams that have already qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. They go into this game on a really fine run, unbeaten in their last 27 matches. Their last loss was against Brazil in 2019 in the Copa America semi final and after that they started their current run with a win over Chile in the third place playoff. In their last game, in November 2021, Argentina drew 0-0 with Brazil, making it six straight games without conceding a goal. They will be without star man Lionel Messi in this game with the PSG forward having just recovered from Covid. In their last 10 matches, they have seven wins and conceded just two goals. In World Cup qualification they are unbeaten in 17 matches, the last time they lost being in 2017, 2-0 away to Bolivia. That remains their only loss in 20 matches in World Cup qualification.

Argentina have eight wins in 13 World Cup qualification matches.
Argentina are unbeaten in 17 World Cup qualification matches.
Conclusion Chile - Argentina
Chile haven’t had a very good run ahead of this game and they go into one game they can’t afford to lose, but against a very tough opponent. In the last 11 meetings with Argentina, Chile do not have an outright win. Two times in that run, they’ve won on post match penalties and have lost six times. Even though they play at home, it will be tough against Argentina, but with their visitors already qualified, and Messi unavailable, we may see a more relaxed approach, and perhaps a weakened team. With that in mind, a draw seems possible.
