Chile will take on Uruguay in the World Cup qualifier clash scheduled between these two nations at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos on 15 November. The two teams will be looking for three points in the last international fixture of this calendar year.

The Copa America winners enter this fixture after settling for a goalless draw against Colombia. For that clash, Chile were without the services of their star player and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

He picked up a low-grade muscular injury in the training and was advised to return to north London to continue his recovery. The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger had warned the hosts not to include Sanchez in the squad for the fixture on Tuesday.

Arsenal were joined by Bayern Munich as the latter are worried about Arturo Vidal's fitness. Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo's fitness was a concern for the clash against Uruguay.

However, Chile boss Juan Antonio Pizzi has declared the trio of Sanchez, Vidal and Bravo fit for the nation's upcoming World Cup qualifiers. Arsenal, Bayern and City will be hoping that their key players can return to their respective clubs without any injury concern.

Uruguay, on the other hand, come into this tie with a 2-1 win over Ecuador. Oscar Tabrez was not convinced with his side's display in their latest win, but was happy that they managed to bag three crucial points.

Tabrez will be hoping to seal another three points when they take on Chile. However, he will be aware that with Sanchez, Vidal and Bravo fit, they will have a tough task on their hands. The trio are key players in Chile's spine and their inclusion could create trouble for Uruguay.

What managers say

Juan Antonio Pizzi: "Sanchez was not ready for the game in Uruguay, but we knew the injury was a small one and we could have him for this match. The three of them [Sanchez, Vidal and Bravo] are available to me for tomorrow. It's not that he [Sanchez] hasn't trained, he's trained every day, even when we were in Colombia he did a different kind of work. Yesterday he took part in full training."

Oscar Tabrez: "It was a tough match. Ecuador had the ball but we found solutions. The qualifiers are to get points, not to play well, and we are very happy about our position in the standings. This game has allowed us to take more advantage over teams that follow us."
