Punters searching for Copa America odds will be looking with interest at the crunch Group C clash between Chile and Peru on Tuesday.
Nothing separates the two South American rivals heading into the final match of the group stage, with both having recorded victories over Mexico and drawn against Uruguay.
When they face off in Mendoza, Chile will start as slight favourites, thanks in no small part to their impressive head-to-head record against La Blanquirroja.
Claudio Borghi’s men have come out on top in their past four meetings with Peru, including an emphatic 3-1 win in their last fixture – a World Cup qualifier back in 2009.
Alexis Sanchez played an important role in that result, opening the scoring after two minutes, and the Udinese forward – the subject of much transfer speculation around Europe – is sure to be a key part of Chile’s plans for Tuesday’s game.
Fans who are convinced La Roja will come away with the three points can get odds of 4/5 at bwin, which means a successful £25 bet on Chile will net winnings of £45.
Although Peru have not beaten Chile since a 2-1 triumph back in 2004, they will be confident of bagging a positive result in this table-topping fixture.
Peru’s Hamburger SV striker Paolo Guerrero has been in top form so far in the 2011 Copa America, bagging goals in the 1-1 draw with Uruguay and the 1-0 win over Mexico.
If Guerrero and his team-mates perform at their best against Chile, they have every chance of securing the victory and a place in the quarter-finals, and bwin is offering odds of 7/2 for them to do just that.
However, both sides will know that a draw could be enough to see them through the group stage, so Tuesday’s encounter could prove to be a cagey affair.
As a result, fans can get Copa America odds of 23/10 on the game to finish all square, meaning a £25 stake could return £82.50.
