Brazil and Chile will battle for a semi-final spot at Copa America 2021 when they meet at the Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos, Rio de Janeiro, on Saturday.
The Selecao have pretty much cruised their way to the knockout stage with a perfect record until they were held to a 1-1 draw by Ecuador in their final group stage game that put an end to Brazil’s 10-game winning streak.
Chile qualified for the knockout stages after finishing fourth in Group A, with one victory, two draws including against Argentina and Uruguay, and a defeat in their campaign so far.

Tite will revert to a full strength Brazil side after having rested several key players in the 1-1 draw against Ecuador in their last group game. Neymar, with two goals and as many assists in three games, will lead the line of attack. Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus, too, are likely feature in attack. At the back, Thiago Silva will look to keep his place.
Chile are set to welcome back Alexis Sanchez after the forward suffered an injury ahead of the tournament. While it’s unclear if he will start, Eduardo Vargas and Arturo Vidal will need to take the onus upon themselves. In defence, with Guillermo Maripan doubtful on account of an injury, Chile will have Gary Medel available.
