Chile vs Paraguay build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Just the single win for Chile after 10 matches has left the nation languishing precariously near the bottom of the pile. Martin Lasarte’s side are currently nine points off Uruguay in the final automatic qualification place so must seriously start picking up results now or risk being left behind and missing out on Qatar next year.
For Paraguay, a win here would take Eduardo Berizzo’s men just a point below fourth-placed Uruguay (providing they lose to unbeaten Argentina in the adjacent fixture), so there is a huge emphasis on Los Guaranies pulling out all the stops to outfox Chile and boost their chances of making the quadrennial tournament.
- Chile (vs Peru): Bravo; Isla, Maripan, Medel, Vegas; Nunez, Aranguiz, Pulgar, Meneses; Brereton, Sanchez.
- Paraguay (vs Argentina): Silva; Rojas, Gomez, Alonso, Alderete, Arzamendia; Morel, Almiron, Villasanti, Romero; Sanabria.
Arturo Vidal missed out through injury against Peru and is likely to sit this contest out, meaning Erick Pulgar and Charles Aranguiz are likely to partner each other in midfield once again. The experienced Inter Milan engine will join centurion Eduardo Vargas on the sidelines.

Player to watch: Ben Brereton (Chile)
Stoke-on-Trent-born Ben Brereton has started the season like a house on fire in the Championship with Blackburn Rovers and will be looking to translate that form to these Qualifiers. The 22-year-old is one of just two strikers alongside Aleksandar Mitrovic to net double digits in the English second tier (both on 10 goals) this term and will be trading his attacking team-mates at Ewood Park to partner Alexis Sanchez this month. If he replicate his scoring exploits in the hustle and bustle of a notoriously hard-hitting division then Chile will stand a firm chance of getting a result here and sneaking up the table. With fifth-placed Colombia locking horns with Brazil, Chile have an excellent opportunity to climb up the ladder and get themselves into a qualification position. Brereton can be the difference-maker to ensuring that happens.
