Betting: Germany & Chile to go head to head for Confederations Cup Group B leadership

Germany are the favourites to top their group, yet we think Joachim Low's inexperienced squad will be run close by South American champions Chile

World champions Germany head into the Confederations Cup boasting an extremely youthful squad, with all of the players selected by manager Joachim Low under the age of 30.

 Nevertheless, the four-time World Cup winners remain the favorites to win the tournament and are the clear favorites to top Group B. dabblebet price Low's men at 10/11 (1.91) to top the group, and there is no doubt that there in plenty of quality in the group despite their lack of experience.

At last summer's Olympics, Germany's Under-23 side finished as runners-up to hosts Brazil on penalties and a number of members of that squad will find themselves representing the first team in Russia this summer. Their main challenge in the group, if not the tournament as a whole, will come from Chile and the winners of the last two editions of the Copa America are priced at 7/5 (2.40) to win Group B.

Alexis Sanchez Chile

Juan Antonio Pizzi has the likes of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, Bayern Munich's Arturo Vidal and Manchester City's Claudio Bravo and one of the great strength's of this La Roja side is the amount of time they have spent playing together.

The unity and understanding between the players has been a key aspect of their recent success and they will be motivated for another push for international glory.

Elsewhere in the group, Africa Cup of Nations winners Cameroon are offered at 13/2 (7.50) although The Indomitable Lions have not been in particularly impressive form. Benjamin Moukandjo's side were thashed 4-0 by Colombia in their final warm up gave, losing their last competitive against Guinea as well meaning they head into the tournament low on confidence.

The outisders for the group are Australia at 14/1 (15.00) and the Socceroos' defensive deficiencies are likely to impede any progress in the tournament. Ange Postecoglou's men conceded four times to Brazil in their last warm-up game, although more concerning will be the fact that they have conceded two goals in their recent World Cup qualifiers against both South Arabia and Thailand.
