What results does the Chilean team need this Thursday?
To get started with this game of possible outcomes, We must make it clear that yes or yes the Chilean team must win to reach 13 points, Without that, the chances of qualifying get even more complicated.
After that, the results that best suit the national team are, that in the first turn of the twelfth date, Bolivia becomes strong as a local in La Paz and defeats Paraguay, leaving the Guarani with 12 units. Later, the key duel between Colombia and Ecuador will take place, duel where those led by Reinaldo Rueda must win in order to reach 18 points and enter the direct classification zone.
But why can’t Ecuador win? Easy, the Chilean team no longer has pending duels against the coffee growers, a situation contrary to what happens with those led by Gustavo Alfaro, so it is better for the Red to face an Ecuadorian team that is “within reach” in November.
The following results that serve those led by Martín Lasarte are obvious. Brazil and Argentina are escaped in 1st and 2nd place in the standings, so it is in our interest that they continue at the top and defeat their rivals this day, Uruguay and Peru respectively.
With these results, The Red it would be 6th in the Qualifiers with 13 points, behind the combined Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Uruguay, the latter two teams with 16 points.
