Chile v Germany Betting Tips and Odds

In our Chile v Germany betting preview we look at the best possible bets between the two sides.

Overview

Sunday sees the final of the Confederations Cup with Copa America holders Chile taking on World Champions Germany at the Stadion Krestovskyi. Juan Antonio Pizzi’s Chile had a tricky route to the final after needing penalties to overcome European Champions Portugal in the semis. Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was the hero, saving three of Portugal’s penalties to seal their place in St. Petersburg. Germany however secured a second tournament final in three years in pretty comprehensive style. They thrashed Mexico 4-1 to seal an eleventh win in fourteen games and another one here would be a big landmark for their young side.

Chile going for three tournament wins from three

It’s been an incredible last few years for the Chilean national team. After decades of being in Brazil & Argentina’s shadow in South America they’ve gone on to achieve incredible success under Jorge Sampaoli and now Juan Antonio Pizzi in winning back-to-back Copa America’s. Their 2015 win was their first ever piece of major silverware but now in the Confederations Cup they’re going for their third tournament win in two years – which would be an incredible achievement. It’s pretty fair to say that Chile haven’t been at the peak of their powers in Russia, but they’ve shown what a hard-working, determined side they are.

That all came to a head on Wednesday night when they took on Portugal in a hard fought semi-final clash. It was a game of few chances but Chile displayed all the qualities that have guided them to success over the last few years, battling through 120 difficult minutes. They almost snatched it with seconds of extra time remaining but Arturo Vidal and Martin Rodriguez unfortunately hit the woordwork. Claudio Bravo was the hero in the shootout, saving three spot kicks and it will give them so much confidence here. They always carry a threat with the likes of Vidal, Sanchez and Vargas and a final against a side like Germany certainly won’t faze them, so we’re expecting plenty of entertainment & drama as they bid for a third trophy in two years.

Germany looking to win the Confederations Cup for the first time

Joachim Low surprised an awful lot of people in the build up to the Confederations Cup by naming their youngest ever squad for a major tournament. 23 year-old PSG winger Julian Draxler is the most experienced player amongst their ranks with 34 caps which says it all and we also named captain – which made him Germany’s youngest ever captain at a tournament. But the inexperience hasn’t shown at all, with the World Champions romping their way through to the final. They’ve won all but one of their games, which incidentally came against Chile on match day two when the pair played out a 1-1 draw. But they’ve definitely improved since that, with their quality on display in their last outing.

They took on Mexico in Sochi in a game that looked like a potential banana skin on paper, but Germany quickly asserted their dominance in clinical fashion. A brace from one of the contenders for player of the tournament Leon Goretzka set them on their way after eight minutes and they never looked out of control. Mexico missed an awful lot of chances which Chile can draw confidence from, but Low’s side were so clinical on the break and proved exactly why they’re so good. Efforts from Amin Younes and prolific RB Leipzig frontman Timo Werner followed as they cruised to the final.
