Spain v Chile – World Cup preview

Watch the Group B clash live on BBC on Wednesday 18 June

Spain v Chile (Group B) 7.30pm (k/o 8pm) BBC1 


It’s been a grim few days for Spain as they try to recover from their 5-1 drubbing at the hands of the Netherlands.

A win tonight would put their campaign back on track, but Chile are hardly ripe for the taking compared. They defeated Australia 3-1 in their first group game, and will fancy their chances of an upset as they seek qualification from Group B.

A group stage exit is almost guaranteed should the World Cup holders lose here tonight. However, their record against Chile is good: in their 10 previous meetings, Chile have not managed a single win.
