This is the only friendly game for Chile this month as they take part in the Kirin Cup next week. After this game, Korea have two more friendlies scheduled against Paraguay and Egypt.

South Korea vs Chile Prediction

South Korea struggled against a full-strength Brazil team last time around but managed to score one goal. Chile have traveled to South Korea with a new-look squad, with veterans Alexis Sanchez, Claudio Bravo and Arturo Vidal all missing out.

The home advantage and Chile's inexperienced squad should play in favor of the home team and we back them to secure a narrow win here.

Prediction: South Korea 2-1 Chile
