Besides the amazing record Brazil has against Chile in history, 44 wins in 63 games, the Seleção has another favorable factor against their World Cup opponent on this monday.

Robinho, the best player since Dunga became the national team's coach, simply loves to face the chileans. The winger has faced Chile four times in his career, having scored seven goals up to this point. "I've always had luck against Chile and was fortunate to score goals, but the most important thing is to advance", said the Santos's player.

His first goal ever against monday's opponent was in 2005, during the World Cup qualifiers. After that, Robinho had a hat-trick in the 2007 America's Cup group stage 3 x 0 win over Chile and scored two more times in the 6 x 1 quarter-final match of the same torunament.

The last time Robinho faced Chile was in 2008 at the World Cup qualifiers, and he scored once during the 3 x 0 brazilian victory.
