Watch Brazil vs Chile Live Stream

Copa América quarterfinal, with Brazil taking on Chile on Saturday the 3rd of July, 2021, at Estádio Nilton Santos, in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil started this tournament being considered top favourite to win it, and the way the group stage unfolded “told” us that they are indeed the biggest favourite, no matter if there were big parts of their four group matches in which they… anything but shined. All in all, they got the job done, easily against Venezuela (3-0) and Peru (4-0), very difficultly against Colombia

 (won 2-1, despite losing 0-1 until the 78th minute and drawing 1-1 until the 10th minute of added time), while in their last game they “just” drew 1-1 with Ecuador, with several key players sitting on the bench, getting a rest. Their current form reads; DWWWW. Coach Tite played a 4-2-3-1 formation against Ecuador, with Gabriel Barbosa up front. A defender, Éder Militão, opened the scoring for Brazil in the 37th minute, but they got equalized early in the second half and failed to score again.

Chile had the day off when the last group matches were played, they knew they were in the quarterfinals, were hoping to avoid Brazil, but the last group results were not what they wanted, they dropped 4th and here they are against the hosts in the first knock-out round. 

Their current form reads; LDWDD. They drew 1-1 with Argentina on their debut, beat Bolivia 1-0, drew 1-1 with Uruguay as well, before losing 0-2 to Paraguay in their last match. Coach Martín Lasarte (Uruguayan) played a 4-3-3 formation against Paraguay in their most recent game, with Vargas as number 9 and Brereton with Pinares on the wings. That was the first game in this tournament in which they failed to score.

Brazil and Chile have met 72 times in the past and the Brazilians have an awesome record of 49W, 14D and 8L. On home ground their record is even more impressive, 29W and 6D in 35 matches, not a single loss(!). Last time they faced each other in Copa América was in 2007, in Venezuela, in the quarterfinals, a… painful memory for Chile, who got destroyed by the Brazilians, losing 1-6(!).

A 2-0 victory for Brazil is predicted at full-time.
Date: Saturday, 3rd of July, 2021.
Venue: Estádio Nilton Santos
Kick-off time: 02:00 (GMT+2).
