World Cup Qualifer for Chile --- Last Chance

Post by admin » Tue Oct 10, 2017 4:58 pm

So, forget the election. There is important things going on today. Chile vs. Brazil, 8:30 (i think), in Brazil.

Brazil is in. There is jokes going around that Brazil wants Chile to win, because they want to lock Argentina out of the cup. So we are essentially in an odd position of having the support of the opposing teams fans.

Not sure of all the math involved, but as I understand it Chile needs to at least to beat Brazil (possibly a tie will do it), and ideally win by something like 2+ points.

Then cross fingers, and hope all the other teams that could push them out of the qualifier have a bad night.

I think, worse case Chile makes it to position 5, and get's a play-off shot to qualify. Again, not very sure of how that all works out.

FIFA math.

If CHile wins, they are through.
If they draw, they are probably go to at least the play off.
If they lose, they could actually go out tonight.

I've actually made an excel sheet so I can punch in the latest scores and keep my own as it stands table! It is actually pretty complicated this time.

Nearly got it - there are so many permutations that affect whether Chile qualify or not - if Chile wins, they qualify so at least they have fate in their hands but it won't be easy against Brazil in Brazil (realistic best case scenario is probably a draw?). If they draw or lose it depends on other results: essentially we want Ecuador to beat Argentina, Venezuela to draw or win against Paraguay and I think it is a better result for Chile if Colombia beats Peru or if Peru beats Colombia by more goals than Chile lose against Brazil. Uruguay are essentially through so it is basically 5 teams competing for 2 automatic qualifying spots and a play-off spot. It's something like that anyway - all very complicated!!

There will be lots of nervous Chileans tonight that's for sure. I was in Lima at the weekend and as long as Chile go through, I wouldn't mind the Peruvians qualifying too - it would be their first time at the World Cup for 36 years and they have really high hopes of making it (plus they were really nice people!!) - their president made the afternoon a national holiday, it's that important for them!

It would be a real shame if Chile doesn't make it as the atmosphere is incredible when there are World Cup games, the country comes to a standstill!

Uruguay-Bolivia result probably not important.

Argentinas 2-1 lead has jumped them up 3rd, Chile is now 4th.

Chile will fall another place if EITHER of Peru or Colombia scores.

Chile can even fall all the way to 6th if Paraguay wins and Chile loses.

very tight now, every goal changes the qualifying positions.

Chile back to 5th and still in after the Colombia goal, but a goal for Peru or Paraguay and back out again....

Well probably for the best. Chile's economy started tanking as soon as the football team started winning. Not sure we could aford a world cup run.

not over yet. Peru's goal knocks Chile out as things stand but 1 goal for Chile and I think they would be level with Peru on points, goal differencs and goals scored but through on matches between the sides. that's IF they score one goal. Oh and if Parguay dont score and nothing else chances.
