Chile vs Switzerland Preview

Chile will be on the offensive in this game as they face Spain next match and will see this game as their best chance of securing a place in the round of 16.

Switzerland might be happy to settle for a draw with a Honduras game to come and they have the defence to make that happen as shown against Spain.

Chile vs Switzerland Match Prediction

This game is more important for Chile as they play Spain next and with 3 points in the bank they will be on the offensive to gain maximum points.

Switzerland did sensationally to beat Spain but realistically if Spain had of been on target we would all be singing their praises.

This has all the makings of a draw but we fancy Chile might be able to snare the win.
