Chile welcome Argentina to Santiago in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, with Lionel Scaloni's men aiming to continue their strong form in the tournament.

The Albiceleste are currently unbeaten in their 13 qualifiers so far, a run which has seen them qualify for this winter's World Cup with a number of games to spare.

Chile, meanwhile, are in desperate need of a win to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for Qatar 2022, with La Roja currently in sixth place in the table and only the top four guaranteed a place at the showpiece this November.

Ahead of the game, GOAL brings you everything you need to know, including how to watch, team news, odds and more.

Argentina know that their job of qualifying for the World Cup is done, and as such they can approach the game with relative ease, safe in the knowledge that there is little at stake.

Chile, meanwhile, will view the game as a real opportunity, given the absence of Lionel Messi and La Roja will look to capitalise on any potential lack of Argentine motivation.

That Chile are still in with a chance of qualifying for the World Cup is down almost entirely to their home form where the majority of their points have been won, with Martin Lasarte's men only defeated in front of their own fans by leaders Brazil and third-placed Ecuador.
