The national team will return to the ring for the qualifying rounds towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup, with the aim of achieving its second consecutive victory and defeating Chile again, but this time at the San Carlos de Apoquindo stadium in the city of Santiago.
Those led by coach Leonardo González come from defeating Ecuador 2-1 last Sunday, and will try again to dominate the southern team, which they already beat 2-1 at the UCV Olympic Stadium in November 2020, when La Vinotinto was directed by the Portuguese José Peseiro.
The Venezuelans arrive at the home of the Chilean Catholic University with the mission of getting three points that will keep them with the possibility of ascending in the standings and being able to leave the last place, where they find seven points as a result of two victories and a tie.
With this objective in mind, González will have to rebuild his starting eleven due to the already known casualties of the footballers Jhon Chancellor, Junior Moreno, Yeferson Soteldo, Sérgio Córdoba and Josua Mejías, who will not be able to be present at the commitment due to personal issues, sanction and injuries.
However, the national team has the necessary pieces to face the absences. Defender Luis Adrián Martínez stands to be the companion behind Nahuel Ferraresi, while winger Eduard Bello would remain in the place of the injured Soteldo after commanding the victory against Ecuador, at the UCV Olympic Stadium, with a goal and assistance.
With regard to the attack front, Bello would be accompanied by the wingers Darwin Machís, Adalberto Peñaranda and the forward Eric Ramírez as the only man in point.
For its part, La Roja will face the duel against La Vinotinto immersed in a deep crisis of results by adding only 10 units out of 33 disputed and immersed in doubts regarding their game.
