Chile have been more than handy in both 1-0 wins over Honduras and Switzerland and a point will assure qualification to the next round.

Spain were defeated by Switzerland in a major upset before bouncing back with a 2 goal win over Honduras and with Switzerland likely to beat Honduras this is a must win game for the Spaniards.

Chile vs Spain match prediction

Spain has won three of four meetings against Chile with their only loss being 3-1 at the 2000 Olympics.

The most recent game played between these two sides saw Spain comfortable winners by three goals.

Spain appear the most likely winners especially with Chile missing a couple of vital playmakers and if Spain can start converting the many chances they make then they should be able to get the biscuits here.

Having said that, the odds about Spain are very short and Chile is the value considering they are unbeaten from both their games.

In a low scoring group we fancy Spain to keep Chile to no goals and prefer that bet to the short win odds.

Back the Dutch to not let Chile score and have a crack at David Villa to score anytime at $1.83 for a side interest.
