Chile only need to draw with Australia to reach the Confederations Cup semi-finals but it will be a surprise if they can’t brush aside a game but outgunned Australia outfit.
With four points from two games, the South Americans have shown they are determined to do well in Russia and build on their two Copa America triumphs.
The Socceroos do try to get forward as much as possible, though, so 39/20 for La Roja to win and both teams to score may be the way to go in our Chile vs Australia betting tips.
A Look At Chile’s Betting Odds
Alexis Sanchez made a big impression when coming off the bench to set up both goals in Chile’s 2-0 defeat of Cameroon and he was again on song during Thursday’s 1-1 draw against Germany.
The Arsenal ace pounced on a defensive error to put La Roja ahead and Eduardo Vargas went close to doubling the advantage when hitting the bar, before Germany rallied well.
Both Group B favourites appeared to settle for a share of the spoils after the break, with Chile boss Juan Antonio Pizzi stating: “The match lived up to its billing, but sometimes we cancelled each other out.”
Pizzi’s side should be able to pick off the Socceroos’ static defence but will also be put under pressure by energetic opponents, so we like 3/1 for a multiple correct score combination of 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the Chile vs Australia odds.
A Look At Australia’s Betting Odds
Ange Postecoglou promised that Australia would do their best to get forward during this tournament and has been true to his word so far.
The Socceroos did benefit from some sloppy goalkeeping in a 3-2 loss to Germany and were gifted a penalty by a rash challenge in Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Cameroon.
However, they did show a good attitude against the Indomitable Lions and Postecoglou said: “We just lacked a bit of composure up front, especially in the second half, when we had some fantastic chances to score.”
Both teams to score is available at 9/10 and is worth including in our Chile vs Australia predictions.
Germany 1-1 CHILE – Alexis Sanchez
Cameroon 1-1 AUSTRALIA – Mark Milligan
Head to head: Chile 3-1 Australia, Chile 2-1 Australia, Australia 0-1 Chile, Chile 3-0 Australia, Australia 0-0 Chile
