Cameroon v Chile tips
FootyOn provide Cameroon v Chile tips ahead of their opening 2017 Confederations Cup Group B battle.
Live on Sunday at 19:00 BST on ITV4
The champions of Africa and South America collide in an intriguing affair at Spartak Moscow’s Otkrytiye Arena.
These two countries have faced each other at senior level just once before, at the 1998 World Cup which ended 1-1 in the group stage.
Read on for our Cameroon v Chile tips…
Alexis Sanchez to score anytime
Chile attacker Sanchez comes into this tournament on the back of a fine personal season with Arsenal, scoring 30 goals in all competitions – including one to help them lift the FA Cup.
On top of that, he needs just one more strike to become his nation’s top scorer on his own, as he is currently tied on 37 with Marcelo Salas.
Three of those goals have come in his last four starts for La Roja, including a brilliant brace against Uruguay in World Cup qualifying.
Sanchez can be backed at a hugely enticing 7/5 price with betway just to net anytime again.
As mentioned in our introduction, the last time these two met they drew 1-1.
Chile may have the better team on paper this time around, but Cameroon have proven that they can battle well against the odds despite a depleted squad.
Indomitable Lions boss Hugo Broos has called up a largely similar roster to that which won the 2017 AFCON, and has left out rebel players like Joel Matip and Allan Nyom.
Backing a draw with both teams scoring appeals at 19/4 with BetVictor.
Chile to be leading at half-time
Chile may have lost last time out to Romania 3-2, but were actually 2-1 up at the break.
Their two previous wins before that, against African outfit Burkina Faso and Venezuela, were also after leading at half-time.
With the likes of stars Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas among their ranks, back Chile to get off to a good start again.
Juan Antonio Pizzi’s South Americans are 23/20 with BetVictor to be up at half-time.
