Prediction & Tip

Many are tipping Chile to perform well at this years World Cup, and would be a likely chance to progress to the Group Stage if they were placed in any other group. Australia has begun a rebuilding stage ahead of next years Asian Cup, and will be outclassed here. We’re going with a 2-0 win to Chile, and like the 5/1 that Ladbrokes is offering.
