Chile vs Paraguay Prediction

Paraguay have a stellar defensive record against Chile and they will be hoping to keep another clean sheet on Sunday. However, their attack has not been particularly great lately, and their defensive approach could lead to a low-scoring affair.

Chile, meanwhile, will be looking to take advantage of playing on home soil. Their recent form has been quite poor, and Arturo Vidal's injury has only compounded their problems. They will be lucky to salvage even a point, and will likely end up losing the contest.

We foresee Paraguay winning this game by a narrow margin.

Prediction: Chile 1-2 Paraguay
