The Copa America champions have been leaking goals and we think there could be some value in backing the hosts to add to La Roja's defensive woes

The USA look to continue their recent run of positive results with a friendly clash against Chile at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Gregg Berhalter's side have enjoyed three successive friendly wins without conceding, the most recent of which being a 1-0 success over Ecuador on Friday.

The reigning South American champions, meanwhile, are enduring a difficult time and having missed out on last summer's World Cup, Chile are struggling to find any consistency.

Latest odds

La Roja have lost three of their last five matches, with their most recent defeat seeing them go down 3-1 against Mexico on Saturday.

Team news

Midfielder Tyler Adams played against Ecuador but has been released to rejoin his club RB Leipzig, while Weston McKennie is injured. Berhalter confirmed he would change the starting eleven as he looks to fully use his squad ahead of the Gold Cup in June.

This will be Chile's final game before Reinaldo Rueda announces his squad for the Copa America and he could also look to experiment. 

Preview

Chile kept three clean sheets on their way to winning the most recent of their Copa America titles back in 2016 but that defensive solidity has seemingly evaporated in recent times.

The last 18 months has seen Chile concede three goals in games against Paraguay, Brazil, Romania, Peru, Costa Rica and most recently Mexico.

The USMNT, meanwhile, have a strong scoring record against Latin American opponents, scoring in ten of their last 11 games - with the only blank during that time coming against Brazil.

Tips and predictions

Backing the USA to score over 1.5 goals could appeal at 13/8 (2.63). In the last ten months this selection has paid out in the USMNT's games against Panama, Colombia, Bolivia and Costa Rica, and Chile could well be added to that list this week. 

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
