After the 1st round we can say exactly what teams are here for the trophy and what teams are here just to participate. Chile, Germany, Portugal and Mexico have good chances to arrive in the knock-out matches. Let’s analyze group stage round 2 matches, find out the best picks and continue to make good profit.

 

Russia vs. Portugal (Group A)

After a comfortable 2-0 victory against New Zealand, Russia face EURO 2016 winners Portugal for the second round of group stage fixtures. As expected, Russia started the tournament with a comfortable 2-0 victory against New Zealand. They are now unbeaten in their last four fixtures and they look really determined to qualify in the semi-finals. They will put their best effort to win at least 1 point against Portugal in front on their fans. The Confederations Cup means a lot for the hosts as they are preparing for the World Cup next year and is the only way for them to play high level matches. Portugal are exactly the opponent that Russia need to measure their forces with. Portugal with Ronaldo leading the team were held to a 2-2 draw by Mexico in the 1st game. For them this contest is a must-win if they want to advance further. The match against Mexico was a “Portugal classic” – they gave away the possession and successfully scored on the break. Against Russia we expect Portugal to dominate the game and try to solve it from half time. Russia have a decent team with talented attacking players and we believe they will contribute to the scoreboard.

Best pick for the match: – Both teams to score at +100 with William Hill

 

Mexico vs. New Zealand

Mexico have a perfect opportunity to win the three points and maintain their chances to qualify in the knock-out stages. They have great experience in this competition and they arrived in Russia with their best players. Against Portugal they dominated the game and managed to grab one point with a late equalizer. With a victory in this fixture, the CONCACAF champions will eliminate New Zealand for the Confederations Cup. Mexico have won each of the five previous mutual encounters. New Zealand have conceded 25 goals in their last 10 matches in this competition. We expect Mexico to start strong, put high pressure on their opponents and score in the 1st 30 minutes of the game.

Best pick for the match – 1st Half Goals – Over 1.5 at +150 with Betway

 

Cameroon vs. Australia

Both teams lost their opening game (Cameroon 0-2 Chile; Australia 2-3 Germany) so they are looking forward to get their 1st win in this competition. This match is a must win for both squads if they really want to maintain hopes for a 2nd place finish. Both teams showed decent performance but left too many spaces in their defense. Their luck of experience was the main reason for their negative results. Cameroon have fast players that can cause damage on the break while Australia are expected to keep the possession and impose the pace. We expect a tense game with goals and we should stay away from the winners market. Both squads are capable of finding the back of the net so we should take advantage of that. We should try a small stake on the “over 2.5 goals in the match” at +100 with 10Bet.

Best pick for the match – Both teams to score at -125 with Bet365

 

Germany vs. Chile

Despite coming to this tournament with “the B team”, Germany are the favorites on winning the trophy. They started the competition with a well-deserved 3-2 victory against Australia. They missed a lot of opportunities in their 1st match showing that the players are not performing at their highest level yet. Chile are really solid with plenty of creativity in midfield and their firepower can make the difference and win them the match. Chile have scored 11 goals in their last five matches while Germany have netted 13 in their last four fixtures. Both teams have great skills and we expect a goal-fest. Again we will stay away from the winners market as we have plenty of options to bet on. Germany’s attack looks deadly so they should find the back of the net at least 2 times in this match.

Best picks for the match – Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals -117 with Bet365
