There are two matchdays left in the South American qualifiers for Qatar 2022. In the first of the two matchdays, leaders Brazil will play hosts to Chile needing a win to move closer to securing top spot ahead of rivals Argentina. Brazil and Argentina have already qualified for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament.
