Chile’s youngsters wrap up their three-game European tour versus Poland on Thursday evening.
Reinaldo Rueda has rested his golden boys for this trip to Wrocław, instead opting to experiment with the younger talent at his disposal.
Claudio Bravo, Arturo Vidal, Eduardo Vargas, and Alexis Sánchez are notable exclusions from the 25-man squad.
Having already produced two competitive displays on their overseas camp, ‘La Roja’s’ quality in-depth has been demonstrated over the past eight days.
Guillermo Maripán’s solitary goal proved to be decisive on Monday in an impressive victory over World Cup attendees, Serbia.
Four days prior, an 84th minute Romania winner denied Chile a two goals a-piece stalemate after grafting with ten men for the best part of seventy minutes.
The South Americans should match-up as stiff opposition for Poland and initially look to be the value, having been priced at 7/2 for the outright win.
The Poles have been chalked up as 20/21 favourites and are overvalued at odds-against.
Adam Nawalka’s side have only won once in their last seven friendlies played on home soil, most recently scraping past a mediocre South Korea outfit at the end of March.
When their recent record versus nations ranked in the top 20 is considered, having failed to win on eight out of the last nine occasions, backing Poland at the current price cannot be justified and opposing the home side is the way to go here.
Following an attempted bicycle kick in training, Kamil Glik is a doubt for Poland after injuring his shoulder.
Chile have no fresh injury concerns and are expected to field an experimental side.
Potential Poland Starting XI: Szczesny, Piszczek, Glik, Pazdan, Bereszynski, Jedrzejczyk, Zielinski, Krychowiak, Grosicki, Blaszczykowski, Lewandowski.
Potential Chile Starting XI: Collao, Díaz, Lichnovsky, Maripán, Vegas, Medel, Reyes, Rodríguez, Valdés, Sagal, Fernandes.
Head To Head
- There have been no previous meetings between the sides.
Key Stats & Facts
- 5 of Poland’s last 6 friendlies have produced less than 3 goals.
- Poland – 20/21
- Draw – 5/2
- Chile – 7/2
Poland’s struggles against the more competent nations suggest that Chile have been undervalued in the ‘Double Chance’ market. Reinaldo Rueda’s inexperienced squad have shown to be competitive in their previous two fixtures and are capable of earning a result on Thursday evening.
