      Tip Reasoning

      Both sides will be treating this as a warm-up game for the more serious business of World Cup qualifying that gets underway next month in South America. It is no surprise that Chile name a virtually unchanged squad from the one that won Copa America on homesoil in July and they will be hopeful of more of the same ahead of a crunch qualifier at home to Brazil next month.

      A few players have pulled out including Arturo Vidal and Claudio Bravo but It will certainly be a strong starting line-up from them given this is their only game in this international break. Manager Jorge Sampaoli won’t be looking to change much from what was a deserved triumph and Alexis Sanchez, Matías Fernández and Jorge Valdivia are all likely to start and could cause the Paraguayans big problems here.

      Paraguay made the Semi Finals at Copa America beating Brazil along the way but suffering a real beating at the hands of Argentina before another defeat to Peru in the 3rd/4th place play-off. This is a very experimental sqaud from them with lots of domestically based players in action and 16 members of their Copa America squad not included.

      You have to question the wisdom of taking such a weak side to face a talented Chile outfit, who will be in celebratory mood and keen to reward their fans in Santiago with another win. Therefore you can certainly see a comfortable home win materialising here and Chile are extremely good value at 4/5 to win this one.

      No player in the Paraguay squad has more than 3 international goals to their name so you can’t see them causing Chile many problems. Only a handful of their players have made it to 10 caps and therefore it could just be a question of how many goals are Chile going to score.

      There should be a far few given they always employ an attacking philosophy and there are huge potential returns in backing them to secure a 4-0 win, which they are well capable of at 33/1.
