Venezuela are aiming to get their first points on board in this World Cup qualifying campaign when they welcome Chile to the Estadio Olimpico in Caracas on Tuesday at 21:00 (UK Time).
Venezuela have endured an awful start to this World Cup qualifying campaign, which is a bit unexpected due to their previous good run of results. The Venezuelans have suffered defeats in the opening three rounds, but the worst thing is they are yet to score in this campaign. They were beaten 1-0 in Brazil two days ago in a game in which they had just one shot on target and only 26% ball possession. On home soil, Venezuela have only managed to win against Bolivia and Trinidad & Tobago in their last 11 games. Furthermore, they are yet to win against Chile in Venezuela, having lost seven and drawn three of their 10 home meetings.
Chile, on the other hand, kicked off this World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-1 loss in Uruguay, but did well to collect four points from their most recent two fixtures. The Chileans drew 2-2 at home against Colombia last month and then won 2-0 at home against Peru. This leaves them only 6th in the group table, just one point behind the qualifying places. The most worrying fact is that Chile have only won once in their last five away games across all competitions. However, the positive thing is that Chile have won in each of their last six trips to Venezuela while keeping a clean sheet in four of those games.
Can Venezuela grab their first positive result in this World Cup qualifying campaign? Or will Chile secure their seventh consecutive victory in Venezuela?

Venezuela and Chile’s previous line-ups:
- Venezuela (vs Brazil): Farinez, Feltscher, Angel, Osorio, Rosales, Casseres, Rincon, Moreno, Soteldo Martinez, Rondon, Machis.
- Chile (vs Peru): Bravo, Beausejour, Maripan, Diaz Huincales, Isla, Vidal, Pulgar, Meneses, Pinares, Orellana, Mora Aliaga.
Don’t expect significant changes to Venezuela’s starting line-up, despite the fact that coach Jose Peseiro is under pressure following recent results. Salomon Rondon should lead the attacking line, supported by Darwin Machis.
Charles Aranguiz is unavailable for Chile, but the good news is that both Alex Sanchez and Fabian Orellana are expected to feature. Pablo Parra, Carlos Palacios and Omar Carabli could make their debuts for Chile in this match.
