Portugal and Chile, the two sides who entered the Confederations Cup with full-strength squads and serious ambitions to win it, face off in a showpiece semi-final on Wednesday.
Both enjoyed a relatively straightforward path to progressing from the group stages, Portugal boasting the joint-best defence of the tournament alongside Chile while the Selecao are top scorers too with seven goals.
Obviously, such statistics decrease in importance when two big sides in world football go head to head for the prize of a place in the final. Fernando Santos’ side may be favourites albeit by a slight margin to edge a tie against opponents of the same calibre, but Betfair have returned with their excellent £1 max stake offer, with new customers enjoying Portugal to win at the boosted price of 30/1 (31.0).
With the tie so tight, backing the European champions at that price is a great way to ensure maximum profit while the low max stake means defeat will not leave you counting the cost, possibly making it the best quid you’ll spend.

And there’s much going for Portugal to triumph here, with Cristiano Ronaldo the Confederations Cup joint-top scorer. The Euro 2016 winners have been consistently been able to count on the Real Madrid star to get them out of a tight spot - not that they have needed to do so much in this edition of the competition, given they have never been behind by conceding the opener.
That is a stat that is unlikely to change given how three of Chile’s four goals have come after the break. The Copa America winners have not enjoyed good fortune against European sides of late, going winless in three games including a draw with Germany in the group stages.
And Betfair’s 30/1 (31.0) new customer offer with £1 max stake is the best way to back Portugal to continue that trend by emerging victorious in Kazan is an unmissable opportunity at profit.
