After five minutes the home team had already scored, to take the lead 1-0. Esteban Paredes scored the first goal, racing down the left side before drilling a low shot inside the far post.

After 16 minutes Peru got their chance to even it up, and they took it. Yoshimar Yotun delivered a low cross and John Galliquio scored. The game was still up in the air.

But still in the first half, Claudio Borghi’s team scored again. In the 43rd minute, Enzo Andia was on the spot when Peru’s keeper Salomón Libman made a big mistake and cost them a goal.

In the 86th minute Chile extended the lead, and Eugenio Mena put the finishing touches to Chile’s 3-1 win. He lifted a left-footed shot over Libman and sealed the victory.

The second leg of the traditional international friendly tournament takes place in Tacna on April 11.
