Brazil Best In Confederations Cup Group Decider
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier tips Brazil to maintain their 100% record in the Confederations Cup in the final group game against Italy on Saturday.
Brazil and Italy have booked their places in the semi-finals and meet to decide who will finish group winners with the likelihood of avoiding Spain in the last four. The hosts have breezed through without conceding a goal in the tournament while the Italians have had a more uncomfortable ride.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “Brazil have an unbeaten record against Italy that goes back to the 1982 World Cup and with the Azzuri unable to keep a clean sheet, they look good to extend that run tonight.
Italy will miss influential playmaker Pirlo while Neymar is in sensational form for the hosts. Can’t argue with the 4/6 odds for Brazil to win and punters looking for bigger odds can look at 15/2 Brazil to win 2-0 at BetVictor and Neymar to score the first goal for the third consecutive game, 5/1 at Ladbrokes”.
Brazil cruised to a 3-0 victory over Japan in their opening Confederations Cup game and followed up with a commanding 2-0 victory against Mexico. Barcelona-bound forward Neymar has been the star of the show for Brazil, opening the scoring in both games with spectacular efforts. His all-round performances have left head coach Felipe Scolari claiming the former Santos man to be one of the top three players in the world at the moment.
Italy won 2-1 in a drab encounter with Mexico in their first match and had to mount a brave fightback in a more entertaining 4-3 win against Japan in the next game. Japan dominated for much of the match but Italy were ruthless in converting their chances and Sebastian Giovanci clinched the win in the last five minutes.
