🏟 Ecuador vs Peru
Nine of Ecuador’s last ten WCQ home clashes (W5, D1, L4) have featured over 2.5 goals and they're without a clean sheet in 14 outings. Peru is the only side still winless in qualifying so we're backing the hosts.
🏟 Venezuela vs Uruguay
Venezuela has found the back of the net in their two most recent fixtures (W1, L1), but have not done so in three straight non-friendly fixtures since the 2016 Copa América. The team to score first remains undefeated in Venezuela’s last 14 matches across all competitions (W11, D3) so the first goal should be all-important.
🏟 Colombia vs Argentina
Seeking a 13th consecutive appearance at a World Cup finals, second-half goals have been a rare commodity during Argentina’s WCQ campaign so far, with their five matches to date producing just a single goal after halftime. Unsurprisingly, nine of their last ten internationals witnessed scoring before the 25th minute. La Albiceleste is unbeaten in nine matches on foreign soil (W6, D3) and remains unbeaten in this qualifying campaign.
🏟 Paraguay vs Brazil
Paraguay’s three score draws recorded so far in this WCQ campaign have averaged 3.33 total goals per match but they'll have to be at their best to get anything against a Brazil side with five wins from five.
🏟 Chile vs Bolivia
Since the current qualification format began back in March 2000, Chile has (if excluding walkovers) seen 15 of their previous 22 WCQ home wins (68.18%) come by a 2+ goal margin. The Chileans led at halftime in all six prior WCQ home H2Hs prior to a walkover win vs Bolivia in September 2016. Watch out for Chile talisman Alexis Sánchez, who averaged a goal contribution in 65.22% of his WCQ appearances (17 goals, 13 assists).
