Brazil vs Chile: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Brazil seem to be stronger than ever to fight for a back-to-back continental title. They have begun the Copa America 2021 on the right foot, as they remain unbeaten and only dropped points against Ecuador when they were already inside the quarterfinals.
On the other hand, Chile have the odds stacked against them, not because they're not a good team, but due to the opponents' strength. Lasarte's men only managed to beat Bolivia so far, which isn't very encouraging. However, La Roja know what pulling off a shock is like, and they expect to do it again this year.
This will be the 22nd meeting between these two sides in Copa America. La Verde-amarela have the edge with 16 victories, while Chile have only claimed the win three times, and they've tied twice.
