The 21-year-old hit the first goal of the tournament in memorable style, and Al Hain-Cole expects him to prepare for a move to Barcelona by opening the scoring against La RojaAfter an enthralling tournament, the Confederations Cup has left us with the final that all the neutrals wanted to see, as hosts Brazil take on World and European champions Spain.
An entertaining match seems inevitable, and BetVictor’s offer to refund all first/last goalscorer bets should four goals or more be scored provides a great opportunity for a wager.
Nobody represents the ideals of O Joga Bonito better than Neymar, who has lit up this tournament with three goals already, and is available at 11/8 (2.38) with BetVictor to hit the back of the net in his first game at the revamped Maracana.
The Barcelona-bound 21-year-old opened the scoring in the first two games in emphatic style, and you can get tempting 17/4 (5.25) odds on him breaking the deadlock here to show his future teammates what he can offer.
Although he may not be as glamorous a name as his strike partner, Fred also has three goals to his name, and offers tempting value at 9/5 (2.80) to grab his fourth in three games in the final, or a hefty 11/2 (6.50) to open the scoring.
The Brazilian pair are neck and neck in the fight for the Golden Boot with David Villa, who hit a hat-trick on his only start against Tahiti, but having failed to feature at all in the semi-final, the record scorer is probably best avoided at 11/2 (6.50) to score first, although could be worth a punt to come off the bench and score last at the same odds.
Four goals against Tahiti put Fernando Torres in pole position to finish top-scorer, and he is available at 9/5 (2.80) to score his sixth of the tournament, with 11/2 (6.50) the price on him getting the ball rolling.
Paulinho is supposedly on his way to Tottenham after an impressive Confederations Cup, where he has demonstrated a keen eye for goal with two strikes in four games.
The midfielder hit the winner against Uruguay, and could be a lucrative long shot at 17/5 (4.40) to score anytime, or 10/1 (11.00) to score first or last.
Pedro scored La Roja’s first goal of the tournament, and his understated threat inside the penalty area is highly valued by Vicente del Bosque, who has started him in every game except the Tahiti clash.
The Barcelona forward seems undervalued at 85/40 (3.13) to hit the back of the net on Sunday, and odds of 13/2 (7.50) are also worth considering on him striking first.
