Chile are due to kick off the Copa America against Ecuador in Santiago in just five days time, with the final pre-tournament friendlies to be played over the weekend.
Exhibition games so close to the start of major competitions are renowned for their guarded nature, with coaches keen to keep their cards close to their chest and players at pains to avoid any unnecessary injuries ahead of competitive action.
Low scoring games abound as a result and Saturday’s international friendly treble taps into this trend for the basis of a 9/1-plus multiple on the night’s action, with a little help from likely code-breakers Colombia and Costa Rica.
22:15 – Colombia v Costa Rica – over 2.5 goals @ 19/20
While around them go through the motions Los Cafeteros and the surprise package of the 2014 World Cup are expected to treat punters to goals by the gallon.
Jose Pekerman’s side have netted at least twice in their last seven on home soil dating back to before their Brazilian adventure.
They’ve kept four clean sheets during that period, but the Costa Ricans’ carefree approach is expected to loosen them up if they prove incapable of hopping the line alone.
Both sides have found the net in all bar one of Los Ticos’ last eight outings, with a 0-0 affair against arch defenders Paraguay the sole blot.
23:00 – Uruguay v Guatemala – under 2.5 goals @ 7/5
The absence of Luis Suarez, still suspended from international action, is a huge buzzkill for the Celeste ahead of the Copa America.
Uruguay have scored more than twice on just two occasions in seven outings since they were knocked out on Brazil and the Barcelona man was responsible for three of six goal total in those fixtures.
The Guatemalans have failed to trouble the scorers in their last four away games, making them unlikely saboteurs of the selection.
00:00 – Argentina to beat Bolivia in a match of under 2.5 goals @ 13/10
The Bolivians have routinely proven tough to dismantle for the World Cup runners-up in recent renewals, with the last three clashes each ending 1-1.
Factor in that the Albiceleste are missing Lionel Messi, in action along with Suarez, in the Champions League final earlier in the evening and unders starts to become a very worthy proposition.
Argetina have only scored more than twice in a match once in their last six games.
