Paraguay vs. Chile, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Cameron Spencer

Chile look to stay ahead of Venezuela for the final automatic qualification spot as they travel to face last place Paraguay.

Chile have won just one of their last four qualifiers -- including a loss to Peru -- and find themselves ahead of Venezuela for the final automatic qualification spot on just the goals scored tiebreaker. Chile look to have the weapons to be able to deal with a struggling Paraguay with Juventus' Arturo Vidal in midfield and Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez in the attack. Sanchez was strong at the end of the season for Barca scoring three goals in his final four games.

Paraguay have struggled in qualifying winning just twice in eleven matches so far. They're led by strikers Oscar Cardozo and Roque Santa Cruz, both of whom they'll need to have scoring if they have any hope of getting back into the qualification fight and attempt to make their fifth straight World Cup finals.
