Confederations Cup Final
Saint Petersburg on Sunday will reverberate with the fans from Germany and Chile as the two nations fight for the title of Confederations Cup 2017. History is in the making because neither team has ever appeared in a final of this competition. Both teams have already played once in the league stage where the score ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

Germany – young and dangerous squad
World Champions Germany decided to come with an experimental squad for this tournament – which is the youngest in Russia – resting some of the regulars. They are on a 14-match unbeaten streak coming into the final making them favourites to lift the title. The side is brimming with attacking talent and the Mexicans will vouch for that after their drubbing in the semis.

Joshua Kimmich and Julian Draxler may be the most talked about players of this squad but Timo Werner (three goals, one assist) and Leon Goretzka (three goals) have lit up the tournament with their attacks. Surely, this young German squad will be a tough puzzle for the South Americans on Sunday!

Chile – experienced campaigners
Chile are peaking at the right moment of time and with their experience of major finals, the South Americans will look to win their third major trophy in three years. The two-time defending Copa America Champions dictated terms to Portugal in the semis and ended up deserving winners. Of course, when it goes to penalties, Claudio Bravo’s exploits are second to none!

The experience of Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal, Bravo, Gary Medel among others make Chile a dangerous opponent for Germany. If the tempo they displayed against Portugal where they created numerous chances is anything to go by, Chile fans can keep dreaming of another silverware.

Profligacy in the final third is a concern for Chile though who have scored just four goals in normal time in the four matches so far. Also put to test would be their physical strength in coping with the 120-minute semi-final they played.

Key battles
Germany dictated terms to all their opponents so far and that will once again be the key to their success. Chile are no slouch with the high-pressure game either which makes the battle very intriguing.

First goal in such matches become critical which could become make-or-break for the two sides. If it goes to penalties, regardless of the historical edge for the Germans, Chile will have a huge edge because of experience.

Chile have now drawn four of their last six matches. Against top-15 sides, Chile have drawn four of their last six encounters with four of those games witnessing fewer than two goals. Joachim Low’s side do not boast a favourable record against top-15 ranked sides – they lost four of the eight games played since 2015.

Odds of $1.75 (bet365) make Germany favourites to lift the trophy while Chile at $2 (bet365) offer value.

TIP: Germany to win – $1.75 at bet365

Five of the last seven Confederations Cup finals have seen more than two goals – a pick that comes at odds of $2.10 (William Hill).

TIP: Over 2.5 Total Goals – $2.10 at William Hill
