South American champions Chile play their final warm up game before the Confederations Cup against an out-of-form Romania side on Tuesday evening.

La Roja earned a 1-1 draw in Moscow on Friday night against the hosts of the forthcoming tournament Russia, and the winners of the last two editions of the Copa America will be confident of claiming a win in Cluj on Tuesday.

While Chile's only defeat in their last nine matches has come away to Argentina, Romania have been in awful form - their only win in their last 10 games coming against Armenia.

Saturday's 3-1 defeat in World Cup qualifying at Poland has left them in fourth place in Group E, and unlike Chile, who have every chance of making it to Russia 2018, Romania look set to miss out on another major tournament. 

Paddy Power price a home win at 11/4 (3.25) while the draw can be backed at 12/5 (3.60), yet the smart money should surely be going on Chile at 10/11 (1.91). Also worthy of consideration is the price of 8/11 (1.73) for under 2.5 goals which has paid out in five of Chile's last eight friendly matches as well as in six of Romania's last nine games in all competitions.

Indeed, the Romanians have only scored two goals in their last 450 minutes of football, while in their last eight friendlies, Chile have only netted more than one goal on two occasions.

So perhaps backing a low-scoring game should appeal, and another option to consider is opposing both teams to score at evens (2.00), which has paid out in four of Romania's last six matches and looks a healthy price conisdering how goal-shy they have been in the last few matches. 

In the correct score market, the price of 6/1 (7.00) for a 1-0 win for the visitors could appeal for those looking for a value bet, with a 2-0 Chile victory priced at 17/2 (9.50)
