Brazil appears set on at least two changes in its starting lineup for the South American qualifying clash that could keep Chile out of the World Cup in Russia next year.

With Chile looking for a positive result to guarantee World Cup football next summer and Brazil aiming to end an excellent campaign on a high, this should be an entertaining game and dabblebet customers can watch and bet on this fixture via desktop, mobile and tablet.

On one hand, Claudio Bravo facing Ederson in Chile's World Cup qualifier is a wonderful motivation.

Striker Gabriel Jesus said: "Everybody knows the skills of Messi and the importance of Argentina".

"I want the competition to be fair", Tite told reporters on Monday. Failure in the final match may leave the team at home. "We earned everything we have and they will have to earn it to clinch the spot". I can't imagine what it is like for others; they must be having trouble sleeping.

But he added that he felt the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti had been hasty, saying: "It wasn't a perfect start to this season, but it went OK".

"We don't think of an agreement not to attack, " Bravo said. "That will make us all play well".

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson will replace Alisson, and Marquinhos comes in for injured Thiago Silva.

Team Chile is included in the expanded pool of applicants for participation in the world championship.

Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi will already be missing midfielder Arturo Vidal, who is suspended.

The two-time world champions, runners-up three years ago, have been a mainstay in the showpiece tournament since missing the 1970 edition in Mexico, but three consecutive draws have left Argentina adrift of the play-off spot on goals scored. The most recent of those meetings was the first match in this qualifying tournament where Chile inflicted Brazil's only defeat, winning by a 2-0 scoreline. "Entrega Brasil", which means "Give it away Brazil" in Portuguese, has been one of the most mentioned lines by Brazilians on Twitter since last week.
