Brazil vs Chile – Samba stars dance their way to quarters

| 28.06.2010

Brazil combined steel with silk to beat a spirited Chile side 3-0 and book a place in the last eight to face Holland.

Brazil are now 5/2 favourites to win the World Cup.

Robinho sealed the win thirty minutes from time with a classy passed finish from 18 yards after defensive midfielder Ramires had gone on a blustering run.

The near-faultless display and accompanying result will send a message to all the other teams left in the competition that Dunga’s men have stepped up a gear.

Juan put the five-time winners in front midway through the first half with a towering header from a Maicon corner.

For the second goal a marvellous passing interchange from Robinho and Kaka put Luis Fabiano free and Brazil’s top scorer in this competition expertly rounded the keeper to slot home.

It was Fabiano’s third goal of the World Cup and he is 7/2 third favourite to win the Golden Shoe, while a Brazil/Fabiano combo is 9/2.

Brazil’s victory sets up a mouth-watering clash with Holland in the quarter-finals. Dunga’s team have been installed as Evens favourites to win the match in 90 minutes, with an Oranje’s victory in normal time at 3/1.

How far can Brazil go? They are 14/1 to repeat the victory over Chile with a 3-0 win over Holland. See the full Holland v Brazil match betting market.
