Chile are going through a poor run of form in 2022, having lost four of their five fixtures in all competitions. Their only victory came up against Bolivia in February. Meanwhile in the last match in South Korea, goals from Hwang Hee-chan and Son Heung-min handed Chile their third consecutive defeat. La Roja failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year after finishing seventh in the South American qualifiers, five points behind the playoff spot. La roja are going through a transition period after the retirement of some of their big names and many of the stars like Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal and past their prime. Without a major tournament looming, Eduardo Berizzo will be looking to regain confidence and rebuild his team for the future.

Tunisia on the other hand, began their June round of fixtures with a thumping 4-0 win over Equatorial Guinea. Youssef Msakni netted a brace while Naim sliti and Seifeddine Jaziri scored one goal each to pocket three points in their AFCON qualifiers Group J opener. The Northernmost nation in Africa has qualified for the World Cup in November courtesy of a 1-0 aggregate win over Mali in the playoffs. The Carthage Eagles are drawn in Group D alongside Denmark, France, and either Peru or Australia will join them. Therefore, Jalel Kadri will be aiming to use these fixtures to prepare his team in the best possible manner for the upcoming global event.

Probable Lineups

Chile has a fully fit squad with Alex Ibacache being the only absentee on account of suspension. Brereton is once again expected to lead the attack with Meneses, Alarcon, Nunez and Valencia in support. Medel would sit in front of the back-four.
