Take it as Fred at 2/1

Live on BBC1: Sun 23.00: Brazil (13/8, Hills) can narrowly beat Spain in the Confederations Cup final and Fred is set to strike.

Bookies can barely squeeze a cigarette paper between Brazil and Spain ahead of tonight’s Confederations Cup final, although most tentatively believe the hosts’ Samba style can just about win out over the Iberian ‘Tic Tac’ football, William Hill installing Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side at 13/8 to edge out the world and European champions.

Vicente del Bosque’s men, who showed England a thing or two about taking penalties as they eliminated Italy in a shootout on Thursday, are a 7/4 chance at Stan James and it’s 12/5 courtesy of Skybet to finish all square in Rio de Janeiro’s famous Maracana Stadium.

The latter is sure to be popular given how evenly matched the teams appear and also in light of the fact that neither team could break the deadlock across 120 minutes of Spain’s semi-final contest; subsequently, BetVictor’s 15/1 for it to finish two apiece might attract some speculative cash in a potentially open affair.

However, the visitors might be heavy-legged after a gruelling 120 minutes against the Azzurri and roared on by a vociferous home crowd, the Brazilians should have the edge. They’re 3/1 via bet365 to shade it by a one-goal margin and in a clash that’s a safe-looking 20/21 (Stan James) to generate three or more goals, BetVictor price Scolari’s troops at 19/2 to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.

Elsewhere, the quality of attackers on display suggests it’s likely that both teams will find the net (8/11, Stan James) and bet365 mark an enticing 3/1 against Brazil prevailing in a fixture featuring over 2.5 goals.

Ladbrokes meanwhile, quote 5/1 for Neymar to break the deadlock, a bit shorter than the 6/1 Stan James offer about a Fernando Torres opener but the best bet in terms of goal-getting could be BetVictor’s 2/1 for Fluminese front man Fred to add to his three tournament goals at any stage after he was on target in the semi-final triumph against Uruguay.

Recommended Bets:
Fred to score at any time – 2/1 (BetVictor)
Brazil to win by one – 3/1 (bet365)
