These two sides already fought each other to a halt in the Confederations Cup and we think Sunday could produce another keenly contested encounter

For the third summer in a row, Chile find themselves in the final of an international tournament. Having won back to back Copas America in 2015 and 2016, La Roja now face world champions Germany as they aim to claim their maiden Confederations Cup triumph.

The respective squads of the two finalists could not be more different with Chile boasting a group of players with vast experience and a great understanding of playing with one another, while Germany will field what could charitably be considered a second string starting XI.

Joachim Low decided to use this tournament to give a chance to players without much international experience, with the likes of Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller to name but a few given the summer off.

Nevertheless, this Germany side has grown into the competition and their last two matches against Cameroon and Mexico have brought victories by 3-1 and 4-1 scorelines respectively.

They are understably marginal favorites for Sunday's final with dabblebet offering them at 7/5 (2.40) to win in 90 minutes, while Chile can be backed at 2/1 (3.00) and the draw is offered at 9/4 (3.25) .

The finalists already met in the second match in Group B in a game which finished 1-1 and the opening 30 minutes was arguably Chile's most impressive showing of the tournament.

Their pressing cause Germany plenty of problems and directly lead not only to the opening goal, but also to a number of other chances. However, the vital thing against a side like Low's is to make the most of your chances and having let the four-time World Cup winners back into the match, Die Mannschaft improved in the second half and fought to a draw. 

Given that Chile won the last two Copas America on penalties - as well as their semi-final against Portugal on Wednesday - while Germany claimed the World Cup in extra-time, backing a draw might be a sensible option, and these sides could be difficult to split.

Another 1-1 is offered at 5/1 (6.00) while a draw at half time can be backed at evens (2.00) and backing a draw with under 2.5 goals is available at 11/4 (3.75)
