In a precursor to the Copa America, Argentina return to international duty when they play host to Chile in their fifth game of CONMEBOL FIFA World Cup qualification on Friday, June 4. The international qualifier will be played at the Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades, in Santiago del Estero, Argentina and is scheduled to start at 05:30 am IST.
The hostcome into this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Peru last November in a FIFA World Cup qualifying game. They have made a strong start to their upcoming WC qualification campaign, winning three and drawing one of their opening four matches. On the other hand, the visitors have had a frustrating start to their campaign, securing just four points from their opening four games. However, they defeated Bolivia 2-1 in March in an international friendly game.
Chile won 1-0 in the last World Cup qualifier (2008) and they would want to repeat this result on Friday. A win here could get their 2021 campaign back on track and possibly see them climb into the top four.
