Brazil have been one of the best CONMEBOL teams over the past few years, dominating in World Cup qualifying and they have taken that control into the Copa America. The hosts went unbeaten in Group B winning three and drawing one of their four matches, including two wins in their opening two games without conceding – scoring seven. Colombia were the first team to score against Brazil, but Tite’s men came from behind to win 2-1 before a 1-1 draw with Ecuador sealed top spot.
However, first place has given Brazil tough opposition as Chile enter the quarter-finals as the worst of the Group A qualifiers. La Roja were part of a tricky group alongside Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina, drawing with the latter in their opening match. A tight 1-0 win over Bolivia followed, Chile’s only victory of the group stage before Uruguay held them to a 1-1 draw. Chile ended their group stage with a 2-0 defeat to Paraguay, a result that ultimately saw La Roja drop to fourth.

Brazil vs Chile: Match Stats
Brazil have been free scorers at Copa America this year, netting 10 times so far, with nine different scorers. Ten goals into nine means one Brazilian has scored twice, and it’s no surprise that the player is Neymar, the talisman of this team. The Paris Saint-Germain forward netted in both of Brazil’s opening matches and he is now just nine goals away from equalling Pele’s record as the all-time top scorer for the team.
Although Brazil kept two clean sheets in their first two matches at Copa America, in their most recent two the defence has been a lot more open. Both Ecuador and Colombia breached the Brazil back line, while Chile found the net in three of their four matches, only failing to score in the final game of the group.
