Paraguay vs Chile build-up & previous line-ups:
A first World Cup finals appearance since 2010 is slipping between Paraguay fingers. After 12 matches, the Guaraníes find themselves eighth and four points away from the automatic qualification spots. Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s side also come into this latest showdown with Chile on a three-game winless streak (two defeats and one draw), including a current run of back-to-back defeats the first of which came at the hands of their upcoming opponents (2-0) last month.
Heading into matchday 13 there’s only three points separating Chile and fifth-placed Uruguay whose spot occupies a guaranteed advancement to an inter-confederation play-off game. La Roja will be desperate to make ground as they seek a return to World Cup finals actions after missing out in Russia 2018. To date they’ve won just three of their opening 12 matches while suffering five losses. Martín Lasarte’s men come into this week’s game on a two-match winning streak which comes on the back off enduring a seven-match winless run (four defeats and three draws).

Player to watch: Arturo Vidal (Chile)
There’s no shortage of experience in Chile’s squad with no fewer than six players called up for these latest World Cup qualification matches having accumulated 100 or more international caps. The most decorated in Lasarte’s midfield is Inter Milan’s combative figure Arturo Vidal with 129 and counting.
The 34-year-old started this latest push to reach next year’s World Cup finals on a strong note having netted four goals across Chile’s opening four matches. However, in his next five appearances Vidal hasn’t been able to score or create and that’s something he’ll be looking to make right as La Roja seek a third win on the bounce.
