Chile and Colombia failed to open the scoring and the match corresponding to date 2 of CONMEBOL - 2026 World Cup Qualifiers ended in a draw.

A shot by Rodrigo EcheverrĂ­a ended up hitting the post 29 minutes into the first half and Chile lost its chance to take the lead.

Guillermo Maripán had a great performance. The Chilean defender was important for recovering 4 balls and rejecting 3 dangerous balls.

Another player who had a great game was Camilo Vargas. The Colombian goalkeeper was the protagonist against Chile: he contained 4 shots and made 6 correct passes.

The game became dirty with fouls and the players put in more force. There were a large number of reprimands: Matías Catalán, Jhon Arias, Jorge Carrascal, Luis Díaz, Deiver Machado and Jhon Durán.

Chile's coach, Eduardo Berizzo, presented a 4-3-3 tactical layout with Brayán Cortéz in goal; Matías Catalán, Gary Medel, Guillermo Maripán and Gabriel Suazo on the defensive line; Rodrigo Echeverría, Erick Pulgar and Arturo Vidal in the middle; and Diego Valdés, Alexis Sánchez and Ben Brereton Díaz in attack.

For its part, Néstor Lorenzo's team came out with a 4-3-3 tactical layout with Camilo Vargas between the three sticks; Daniel Muñoz, Yerry Mina, Jhon Lucumí and Deiver Machado in defense; Mateus Uribe, Jefferson Lerma and Jorge Carrascal in the midfield; and Jhon Arias, Rafael Santos Borré and Luis Díaz up front.

Jesús Valenzuela Sáez was in charge of supervising the order of play during the match.

On the next day, Chile will face Peru at home, while Colombia will play as a visitor against Uruguay.
