La Vinotinto will face its counterpart from Chile on the fourth day of the South American Qualifiers leading to the 2026 World Cup, in a duel that will be played at the Monumental stadium in Maturín on Tuesday the 17th starting at 5:00 pm
Those led by coach Fernando “Bocha” Batista gained an important point during their visit to the Brazilian territory, so now is the time to add another victory to their statistics to stay at the top position in the standings.
However, the historical records between the two are overwhelmingly in favor of the Chileans, especially when it comes to Creole land sports. That’s when everything becomes more important now, because this group has the ability and talent to start reversing the bad results.
The final confrontation between the two favored Vinotinto, which meant our team’s first and only victory against Roja in the Qualifiers. On November 17, 2020, at the UCV Olympic Stadium, the National Team led at the time by José Peseiro won 2-1 thanks to goals from Luis Mago and Salomón Rondón.
Before that, Chile always got the best results every time they came. Wins by 1-4 (2016) at La Carolina; 0-2 (2012) of José Antonio Anzoátegui; 2-3 (2008) of José Antonio Anzoátegui; 0-1 (2004) in Pueblo Nuevo; 0-2 (2000) at Pueblo Nuevo; and 1-3 (1989) of Brígido Iriarte; as well as a 1-1 draw (1996) with La Carolina.
To these statistics is also added a 0-1 friendly match (2007) with Pachencho Romero; and two draws for the Copa América – in the old format – 0-0 (1983) with Brígido Iriarte and 1-1 (1979) with Pueblo Nuevo.
