Sweden vs Chile Preview
After failing to qualify for the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, the nation of Sweden are celebrating qualifying for Russia 2018. Sweden come into Saturday’s friendly in good form, losing only to the Netherlands and Bulgarian in their last thirteen matches. They’ve picked up wins against the likes of Italy Portugal and France, proving they are a force to be reckoned with.
The hosts home form has also been impressive where they have won six and drawn one of their last seven games. Throughout those seven games they only conceded two goals showing that they are tough to break down on home turf. Some of those vitories were against lesser opponants but they managed to keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 victory against Italy and conceded only a goal in their victory against France.
They’re up against a Chile side which are usually a big threat going forward but have only found the net once in their last five matches which will give the home side confidence they can pick up a win to keep their winning streak going into this summers tournament in Russia.
Chile failed to qualify for Russia 2018 despite being tipped as one of the outside favourites. They hit a bad run of form which saw defeats to Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil, costing them a place in the tournament. Reinaldo Rueda’s side now have just one win in their last five from which they have only found the net once. His aim now is to rebuild the team over the next couple of years and plan for the future. Arturo Vidal is now 30 years of age and Alexis Sánchez is just a year younger. They may or may not feature in the 2022 World Cup, should Chile qualify, but Rueda needs to start using this time to bring in fresh players who can gain experience in the national side to replace them when the time comes.

Sweden vs Chile Prediction
Sweden come into this fixture in the better form and have more to play for in that they want to build confidence ahead of their trip to Russia in June. Chile have been poor of late which cost them their place in this year’s World Cup but do still have a lot of talent in their side which makes the bookies marginal favourites.
With Sweden being solid at home, we’re not expecting them to give Chile too many chances despite the visitors potential attacking threat. However, we do feel that Chile have enough to get past the host at least once. Given this and the fact Sweden have found the net in their last ten home games, this game is one of our BTTS tips. Picking a winner isn’t easy and so we’re sitting on the fence with a 1-1 draw.
