Colombia vs Chile Prediction & Betting Tip

Colombia vs Chile predictions for Thursday evening’s World Cup qualification clash. Colombia and Chile both hope to consolidate their position in the qualification zone of the group.

Colombia vs Chile
When: 10th November, 20:30
Where: Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez
Prediction: Colombia to Win at 10/11 with bet365
Correct Score Prediction: Colombia to Win 2-0 at 8/1 with bet365

Colombia dropped points at home for the second time last time out when they could only muster a 2-2 draw with Uruguay in October. They opened the scoring in this game only for Uruguay to turn it around and take the lead, with the hosts requiring an 84th minute equaliser to clinch a point.

This still leaves them inside the qualification zone of their World Cup qualifying group, but they will certainly want to build up a bigger cushion. They currently sit 4th with just a one point gap between them and 6th placed Argentina. In between the two sides lie Chile, who will be hoping to move into the automatic qualifying spots with a result on Thursday.

Colombia have been a bit hit and miss recently. They came 3rd in Copa America after getting eliminated by none other than eventual winners Chile. Since their 3rd place match with the United States they have won two, drawn one, and lost one of their qualifying matches.

Chile have been much the same since their second consecutive Copa America triumph. They have been beaten away from home by both Paraguay and Ecuador, with home wins over Bolivia and Peru keeping their points tally rising in between.

In fact, away from home they have had a tough time of things since the last World Cup. They have lost six of their last eight on their travels, only beating Venezuela and Peru.

They have conceded 16 goals in these eight games as well, and they’re coming up against a formidable attack on Thursday. The Colombian attack hasn’t been quite as efficient as you would expect, but with the in form Radamel Falcao back and James Rodriguez always proving a danger it would be foolish to write them off.

James hasn’t been quite as deadly for Colombia since he was pushed out to the right side of the attack, and as such I would expect Falcao to be the main threat for the hosts here. He is in form this season with six goals in six starts for Monaco, and as such he’s expected to start ahead of Carlos Bacca. If you’re looking for an anytime goalscorer I’d recommend going with him.

On the balance of things I think Colombia are the team to back here. Chile have been really poor away from home the last couple of years and it’s been no better since they won Copa America again. Considering this I think odds of 10/11 for a Colombia Win are good value for money, and that’s what I’m backing along with a 2-0 correct score prediction at 8/1 due to Colombia’s rather solid defence and Chile having failed to score in five of their last eight away days.

HEAD TO HEAD
Chile have won four, drawn two, and lost one of their last seven meetings with Colombia.

STATS
Chile have lost 75% of their last eight away days, whilst Colombia have won 73% of their last 11 at home.

TEAM NEWS
Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina will captain the squad, whilst Radamel Falcao returns to the squad after recovering from injury and enjoying a promising start to the season. He is the top scorer in the squad, with Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez the second top scorer and also included. Carlos Bacca is potential competition for Falcao, and Juan Cuadrado is another big name in the team.
Manchester City stopper Claudio Bravo is captain of Chile, and big names such as Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal are also there. Charles Aranguiz will dictate play in the centre of the park, whilst Eduardo Vargas supplies a genuine danger going forward with his 31 goals in 64 appearances, second only to Sanchez.
