After that brief bout of optimism, it's straight back to the glass half full stance for La Tercera, as they point out that when in these situations before (Playing for Chile against Germany with Ter Stegen in goal, and then again against the German for Man City), Bravo hasn't come off well.
With Chile looking for a positive result to guarantee World Cup football next summer and Brazil aiming to end an excellent campaign on a high, this should be an entertaining game and dabblebet customers can watch and bet on this fixture via desktop, mobile and tablet.
Brazil has been the only team in the CONMEBOL region that has been above and beyond the competition.
Striker Gabriel Jesus said: "Everybody knows the skills of Messi and the importance of Argentina". It was strange what happened to Ancelotti. "We will play to win".
Returning to the setback of almost ten years ago, Ederson said, "I was not home at the time of the call, my mother was".
"I see it as complicated for Argentina", the 30-year-old Vidal said. Not even an entreaty from Argentina's main sports newspaper Ole saying "I need you" in Portuguese seemed to move the leader of South American World Cup qualifying.
It is unknown whether Tite will go with a regular captain for the World Cup.
"We don't think of an agreement not to attack, " Bravo said.
After Monday's training at Allianz Parque, Tite confirmed Brazil will test goalkeeper Ederson as a starter.
It's for that reason Chile will struggle in Sao Paulo. We are going to do what is most important for us, for the dignity of a people. "I respect Jose Pekerman very much in Colombia and I recognise the capacity of Chile".
Chile's upcoming hosts have suffered three losses in qualifying-three fewer than any other CONMEBOL team-and La Roja's record of three defeats in their past four outings doesn't look nearly as intimidating. "Entrega Brasil", which means "Give it away Brazil" in Portuguese, has been one of the most mentioned lines by Brazilians on Twitter since last week.
