The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup has reached the final stage, with Chile and Germany to contest the showpiece occasion.
The match will be played in the recently constructed Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg. This match will be a first for Copa America winners Chile, who have never reached a Confederations Cup final before in their history.
In fact, this is the first time they have taken part in the tournament, so they have done very well to reach this stage of the competition.
Surprisingly, this match is also a first for Germany, who have also never played in the Confederations Cup final. The Germans have participated twice in the tournament in previous years, with a third-place finish in 2005 their best effort to date.
1. FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 Final Odds
Germany come into this match as the bookmaker’s favourite, priced at 2.40 with Bet365.
Despite selecting an experimental squad, leaving the bulk of his top players at home, Joachim Low’s team have been superb in this tournament. They finished top of Group B, with 7 points from a possible 9 and are yet to taste defeat in the competition.
The semi-final proved no problem for Germany, who looked excellent going forward in securing a 4-1 win over Mexico.
Chile come into the 2017 Confederations Cup final at 3.00 to win the game. Their passage through has not been as convincing as Germany’s and they required a penalty shootout to defeat Portugal in the semi-final.
Interestingly, Chile have won only one of their four matches in the 2017 Confederations Cup, drawing the other three, including the group game against Germany. The draw is on offer at 3.40 with Bet365.

2. Chile vs Germany Betting Tips
Germany have played some tremendous attacking football in this tournament, scoring a total of 11 goals in their four matches at an average of 2.75 per game.
However, they have failed to keep a clean sheet and Mexico, despite losing the game 4-1, created plenty of good openings in their semi-final. William Hill offer 5.50 for Germany to win and both teams to score.
If Chile are to come out on top in this match, form suggests they will need extra-time and penalties. They have struggled to win games in the tournament and successfully held Germany to a 1-1 draw in the group stages.
Bet365 offer 13.00 for Chile to win the 2017 Confederations Cup final on penalties and this appears to be their best chance of getting their hands on the trophy.
