Australia's first ever point in a World Cup group came courtesy of a 0-0 draw against Chile in June 1974; it remains their only clean sheet in 10 World Cup Finals matches.
Since their third place finish in 1962, Chile have only won two of their 17 World Cup games (D6 L9).
Chile have lost against a subsequent finalist in each of their last three World Cups (West Germany in 1982, Brazil in 1998 and Spain in 2010).
The Socceroos have only won two of their 10 games at the World Cup (D3 L5) – these coming against Japan in 2006 (3-1) and Serbia in 2010 (2-1).
Australia's last eight World Cup games have produced seven red cards (four for the Socceroos, three for their opponents).
Chile conceded 1.56 goals per game in the qualifiers, more than any other of the 32 participants in the 2014 edition.
Australia have never beaten la Roja in any competition, drawing one and losing three so far.
Arturo Vidal was the top scoring midfielder in South American qualifying, helping himself to five goals.
