Find out all the permutations as Group H comes to a conclusion with Chile taking on Spain and Switzerland facing Honduras.
Both games kick-off at 7.30pm.
As it stands (points, goal difference)
Chile - 6 pts, +2
Spain - 3 pts, +1
Switzerland - 3 pts, 0
Honduras - 0 pts, -3
What they need:
A win or a draw against Spain tonight will be enough for Chile to finish top of Group H. If they lose to Spain then they will still finish as runners-up as long as Switzerland draw or lose to Honduras. If Switzerland win by a goal and Chile lose by a goal then second place will be determined by who has scored the most goals. Chile currently have two, Spain two, Switzerland one and Honduras zero.
Will top the group if they beat Chile and Switzerland lose, draw or only win by one goal. A draw against Chile will be good enough for second place as long as Switzerland do not beat Honduras.
A win against Honduras might not be enough to see them through to the last 16. A 1-0 win coupled with a 1-0 for Spain would see Chile pip them to second place on the ‘head-to-head’ rule as both sides would be level on points, goal difference and goals scored. A point will be enough for the runners-up spot if Chile beat Spain. If Spain win then Switzerland must win and score at least two goals in the process.
Must win convincingly against Switzerland and hope Spain lose to Chile in order to grab second spot in the group. For example, Honduras 3-0 Switzerland and Chile 2-0 Spain.
