Brazil Vs. Chile Opens Knockout Stage at World Cup

brazil

 

BELO HORIZONTE – The knockout stage of the World Cup begins Saturday with host Brazil playing Chile, the South American rival it has dominated over the years.

Brazil hasn’t lost to Chile in more than a decade, and has never lost a head-to-head game on home soil. But for the first time Chile arrives to face its neighbor with plenty of confidence, thanks in part to a convincing campaign in Group B that included a victory over 2010 World Cup champion Spain.
