With both teams in strong attacking form but looking vulnerable at the back, Al Hain-Cole expects plenty of goalmouth action at the VEB Arena

Russia and Chile will warm up for the impending Confederations Cup with a friendly clash at Moscow’s VEB Arena on Friday.
 
Having recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory over Hungary on Monday, the Sbornaya are available at 19/10 (2.90) with bet365 to prepare for hosting duties with another win against the South American champions.
 
Meanwhile, La Roja also eased to a 3-0 win over Burkina Faso in their last friendly, and are on offer at 7/5 (2.40) to come out on top yet again in this one.

The hosts played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Belgium in their previous fixture on home soil, and there are odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them serving up another stalemate in the capital.
 
Although Stanislav Cherchesov will have been extremely encouraged to see his side score three goals for the second consecutive outing in Budapest, it was the clean sheet that will probably have pleased him the most considering the recent criticism over defensive performances.
 
However, while keeping a blunt Hungarian attack at bay is one thing, it will take far more resolve to frustrate Juan Antonio Pizzi’s star-studded frontline.

Having conceded nine goals in their last four home games, it seems unlikely that Cherchesov’s men will be able to stand up to the considerable threat provided by the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.
 
Nevertheless, with six goals to their name in the last two games, the Russians will at least fancy their chances of causing some problems of their own for a defence that has kept just a single clean sheet in nine friendly matches on foreign soil
 
With this in mind, odds of 23/20 (2.15) seem generous on over 2.5 goals being scored for both teams’ third consecutive game.

Over 2.5 goals for a 2pt stake at 23/20 (2.15) with bet365
