Match Preview

Two nations on opposite runs will collide this Tuesday as the USA, riding a three-game winning streak, host a Chile side that have lost three of their last five friendly matches (W2, L3).
The ‘Stars & Stripes’ are currently enjoying a four-game undefeated run in front of their own fans (W3, D1) and have now lost just twice in their last ten home outings (W6, D2, L2). Much of the USA’s excellent home form can be traced back to their defensive form since they’ve kept a clean sheet in each of those six wins, whilst conceding two or more goals just twice across that period.
On the other hand, Chile have registered just two victories in their last seven outings (W2, D2, L3), although their last three games have been entertaining with over 3.5 goals in each and both teams scoring.
In fact goals have been a feature of Reinaldo Rueda’s tenure since he was appointed as Chile manager. Seven of his 11 games in charge have featured over 2.5 goals, and six have seen both sides score.
Players to watchGyasi Zardes (USA) netted the winner against Ecuador last time out, and has seven goals in 43 caps. Meanwhile Nicolás Castillo has scored in three of Chile’s last four friendly matches – all of those goals arrived after the 65th minute.
Stat attack: Each of the USA’s last five matches featured just one side scoring, with three of those producing under 2.5 total goals.
There’s been five penalties awarded across Chile’s last three games – two of them were missed.
There’s been a goal scored after the 80th minute in each of the USA’s last four matches.
These two sides have met just four times previously, Chile are undefeated in three of those games (W2, D1, L1).
