I can see Group H finishing the same way. Spain are taking it for granted that they'll beat Chile but that's by no means a given. Apparently Chile fans are angry at the Swiss result but they shouldn't be.

The Swiss will want to make sure that after their win they don't lose to Chile in the next game. Assuming Spain beat Honduras (they should) they go into the last game on 3, Chile 4 and Switzerland 4. The Swiss will bank (heh) on the victory against Honduras seeing them through top so they can avoid Brazil, who were awesome.

Then it becomes an issue of whether Bielsa's learnt anything since 2002 and can set a team up to soak up pressure and hit teams on the break. He's a manager who likes to attack, but he's also tactically flexible and it wouldn't be a total shock to see them shift from 3-3-1-3 to 4-3-1-2 vs Spain. That would allow them to counter attack.
