Holland v Chile: A goal-fest is set to engulf Group B’s decider

| 23.06.2014

With both teams qualified for the last 16 of the World Cup, Holland and Chile do battle in Group B’s final round to determine which of them will top the group.

Whoever does will, providing things go as expected, avoid a first knockout round clash against the hosts Brazil.

As two of the more exciting teams in the tournament so far, it’s sure to be a highly-anticipated clash and we’ve got the best bets for the encounter below:

Over 2.5 goals in the game @ 3/4

Holland followed up their 5-1 demolition of Spain with three more goals against a plucky Austrailian outfit, while Chile have scored five times against both of those opponents too.

As two of the more attacking outfits to have graced the tournament so far, this has encounter has “goal-fest” scrawled all over it in indelible ink.

Only four of Chile’s last 16 matches have fallen shy of the 2.5-goal mark, while this bet has landed in both of Holland’s matches at the tournament thus far.

Arjen Robben to score first @ 6/1

With Robin van Persie suspended for the clash, the attacking onus will fall to the Bayern Munich winger, a challenge which he’ll likely accept with vigour.

Chile’s attacking approach to matches will leave Robben, not known for his defensive work, plenty of space to work in up front.

With two goals in the tournament already, including the opener against Australia, backing Robben to net the first here is a must.

Chile first team to score two goals @ 19/10

There has only been two occasions in the last 17 matches where Jorge Sampaoli’s team haven’t scored two goals in a game.

While prolific at this tournament, Holland don’t have as good goal-getting form as that, managing two goals just once in their last five outside of the tournament.
