Colombia vs Chile, Friday’s match for the quarter-finals of the Copa América at the Arena Corinthians in São Paulo, Brazil.
In one of several games of this Friday, which refers to the quarter-final round of the Copa América 2019, play the national teams of Colombia and Chile.
The national team of Colombia enters this meeting of the quarterfinals of the current edition of the Copa América following the best record of the competition so far, having won all three matches so far, by beating Paraguay (1-0), Qatar (1-0) and Argentina (2-0).
Always demonstrating a remarkable defensive competence, as well as having a quality worthy of registration in offensive terms, combined with the excellent individual and collective value of the team led by Carlos Queiroz.
Initial probable XI: Ospina, Arias, Murillo, Zapata, Diaz; Aguilar, Sanchez, Cuadrado, Rodriguez; Muriel, Baca.
As for the Chilean national team, there is also a positive record so far in the competition, despite having been defeated in the last round of the group stage against Uruguay, in a very balanced game from both sides, with the team previously beat Ecuador 2-1 and Japan 4-0, now reaching this match to eliminate before a powerful opponent so far.
Possible initial XI: Bravo, Island, Medel, Jara, Beausejour; Aranguiz, Diaz, Vidal; Orellana, Vargas, Puch.
Bearing in mind that we have two teams here that have so far been relatively well on their way in this competition, especially the Colombians who have won victories in all their games, while Chile has already suffered a defeat.
But also the fact that both are teams that are relatively disciplined from the defensive point of view (although the selection of Colombia is much more, even because it has a much higher quality in that area of the field), I foresee a very balanced, very tactical and with a less offensive level of football, which should lead to fewer goals scored.
