Confederations Cup hosts Brazil have barely broken sweat on their way to the semi-finals, carding three consecutive victories to top Group A and scoring nine times in the process so it’s easy to see why they’re just 11/8 via Boylesports to go on and lift the trophy.
Luis Felipe Scolari’s men will now face Uruguay in the last four after the latter followed up their opening defeat to Spain by beating Nigeria and Tahiti but it’s hard to see past Brazil, who are 2/5 with William Hill to come out on top in normal time.
Uruguay of course, are rarely a pushover and they showed in the 2-1 reverse against Spain that they will keep on battling until the end but the home side have quality in buckets and can win this one with a bit to spare.
Skybet rate Scolari’s charges at 11/10 in the handicaps where they start a goal behind and Coral offer a generous 11/1 about Brazil registering a 3-1 triumph, Uruguay’s attacking threat sufficient to suggest that they will find the net.
Alternatively, Coral chalk the hosts up at 2/1 to emerge triumphant without keeping a clean sheet and as the underdogs are set to score, it might be worth considering a modest flutter on Liverpool’s Luis Suarez finding the net at any stage (10/3, BetVictor).
Staying with goal-getters, Brazil’s in-form striker Neymar has registered in each of his team’s trio of matches and he looks decent value at 17/4 (BetVictor) to break the deadlock.
