Phil Scolari’s men topped Group A, following wins over Croatia and Cameroon with a 0-0 draw with Mexico sandwiched in between.
Despite not fully gelling as a unit, the Brazilians have been thankful to the form of star man Neymar with the Barcelona man scoring four goals in the opening stages to lead the golden boot charts at this early stage.
The 22 year old will once again be the main man for his country although the goal-scoring appearance by the much-maligned Fred in the win over Cameroon will have given the striker some confidence and eased the burden on Neymar.
Despite navigating a potentially tricky group unbeaten, Scolari has called on his players to raise their game for the knockout stages.
“We can improve a bit more and we will have to do so if we want to overcome Chile, who are good,” he said.
“They have (attacking) threat, they are organised and have a lot of quality.
“I liked the way my team played (against Cameroon). The fact is that we have improved in our passing and our marking.
“We still need to put more pressure on midfield.”
Historically Brazil have had the edge on this weekend’s opponents winning 50 of their 70 games to date and losing just 7 times. The Chileans have not beaten Brazil since a 3-0 World Cup qualifier win back in 2000 and in the subsequent 12 games they have conceded 36 goals.
There has been bad days at the office, such as the 5-0 defeat in September 2005 or the 6-1 defeat in 2007. The signs are though that the gap is closing. The two sides drew 2-2 in a friendly in April 2013 and last November, Brazil needed a late goal from Robinho to seal a 2-1 win.
Having beaten both Spain and Australia in securing second place in Group B, Chile will be confident of causing an upset.
To do so they will need Alexis Sanchez, hero of the wins over the Spanish and Australians, and Arturo Vidal, to be at their best.
