World Cup 2014 Tips

Netherlands meet Chile today at the 2014 World Cup, at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo.

Form

The two sides have met once before, with a 2-2 draw being played out on that occasion.

Netherlands showed their intent early on with a 5-1 thumping of Spain, and then holding on for a competitive 3-2 victory against Australia.

Chile have had an excellent World Cup so far with a first round 3-1 win over Australia, before defeating Spain 2-0.

Injuries & Suspensions

Netherlands will be without striker Robin van Persie who is suspended, while defender Bruno Martins Indi is in doubt through injury. For Chile, Charles Aranguiz has picked up a knee injury and is looking unlikely to take part.

Prediction & Tip

This is shaping up to be an attractive affair, with top spot of the group on the line. Netherlands have had a very good tournament so far, and have found the back of the net on 8 occasions. Chile have stepped up a class, and are unbeaten. Tough to split the two, so we’ll go looking for some value in total goals scored. Ladbrokes are offering¬† 9/5 for 4 goals scored or more.
