Chile vs Paraguay Prediction
Paraguay has a stellar defensive record against Chile and they hope to keep another clean sheet on Sunday. However, his attack hasn’t been particularly good of late, and his defensive approach could lead to a low scoring affair.
Chile, for its part, will seek to take advantage of the game at home. His recent form has been pretty poor and Arturo Vidal’s injury has only compounded his problems. They will be lucky to save even one point and will probably end up losing the contest.
We anticipate Paraguay winning this game by a narrow margin.
Prediction: Chile 1-2 Paraguay
