FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Previews & Tips, Thursday 24th March

BetDeluxe brings you the best bets for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

A heap of South American FIFA World Cup Qualifiers are on the cards.

BetDeluxe goes through the best games and best bets starting with Brazil hosting Chile. 

brazil vs. chile

march 25th 10:30am

A 33-game unbeaten run in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying phase is on offer for Brazil when it plays host to Chile at Marcana Stadium this Friday.  

Having already qualified for this year’s tournament in Qatar, expect Brazil to play a weakened team, while Chile is currently three points behind the top-four automatic qualification places.

Following a disappointing start to its campaign, Chile now requires a strong finish to give itself a chance of booking its place in Qatar.

Successive defeats against Argentina and Ecuador hampered Chile’s progress, but a crucial 3-2 victory away in Bolivia last month has kept its hopes alive.

The team news suggests there will be a heap of chopping and changing to both teams. 

Brazil winger Raphinha has pulled out due to COVID, while Gabriel Magalhaes will play no part due to family commitments. 

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has also been forced to withdraw due to illness, and he has been replaced in the squad by Atletico Mineiro’s Everson, but Liverpool’s Alisson Becker is set to take Ederson’s place in between the posts. .

For Chile, it will welcome back veteran midfielder Arturo Vidal who missed February’s qualifier due to suspension. 

With only its undefeated record to really play for, Brazil will likely take their foot off the pedal and amble along in this game. 

Shapes up as a draw.

Prediction: Brazil 1 Chile 1

Suggested Bets:
Draw head to head at $4.15

paraguay vs. ecuador

march 25th 10:30am

Ecuador will hope to confirm its ticket to Qatar when it heads over to Estadio Antonio Aranda for a clash against Paraguay. 

The visitors currently sit third in the South American Qualifying group, leading the playoff place by four points with two games to go, meaning they require one victory to seal automatic progression.

With just two victories from 16 attempts in the South American group, the World Cup dream for Paraguay is officially over. 

Neither of those wins have come recently, ether, as Paraguay struggles for form.

With far more to play for, and with momentum on their side, we back Ecuador to secure a crucial win.

Ecuador has performed over and above all expectations to remain in the top four, and they should have enough to cruise past a struggling Paraguay team.

Prediction: Paraguay 1 Ecuador 3

Suggested Bet: Ecuador head to head at $2.45

uruguay vs. peru

march 25th 10:30am

Uruguay and Peru will go toe to toe in their penultimate World Cup qualifier at the Centenario this Friday morning. 

Both nations are fighting tooth and nail to book their place at this in Qatar, with the hosts for this clash currently sitting fourth in the standings, and one point above the visitors in fifth.

After suffering a lean patch of results, Uruguay bounced back strongly with consecutive wins to put itself in a plumb to land qualification.

A 1-0 win away in Paraguay was followed up with a comfortable 4-1 victory at home against Venezuela last month, with Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Rodrigo Bentancur and Giorgian de Arrascaeta all on the scoresheet.

A tight tussle is set to take place in Montevideo, though Uruguay will head into this fixture as favourite given the star names such as Suarez and Cavani who will lead the line up front.

Peru will likely cause problems in the final third much like its counterpart, but the hosts possess greater firepower in attack which should see them outscore their opponents.

Prediction: Uruguay 2 Peru 1

Suggested Bets:
Uruguay head to head at $1.42
E. Cavani anytime goal scorer at $2.40
