The Brazilian team consolidated its leadership in the World Cup qualifiers on Thursday with seven games won in the same number of outings after beating Chile 0-1 in Santiago.
Everton Ribeiro’s goal in the 63rd minute was enough to seal the victory.
Chile was parked with 6 points in seventh place.
Those of Martín Lasarte wanted to be the protagonists and were able to take advantage in the first half.
But those led by Adenor Leonardo Bacchi ‘Tite’ changed the position in the second half with two changes and tipped the balance.
