Brazil v Chile Odds: Neymar is favourite to score first at The Emirates

Sunday 29th March, 3.00pm - Brazil v Chile

There is an illustrious international friendly taking place at The Emirates Stadium in North London on Sunday afternoon as Brazil take on Chile. The South American rivals will be using the game as part of their preparation for the 2015 Copa America, which gets underway in Chile in June, and it is a resurgent Brazil who go into the match as favourites with the bookmakers.

  • Brazil have won 7 matches in a row since Dunga replaced Phil Scolari as head coach after the World Cup
  • Neymar has scored 16 goals in his last 15 international appearances
  • Chile are winless in their last 13 meetings with Brazil since August 2000 - Drawn 2, Lost 11

The Brazilians have bounced back from the World Cup debacle of last summer as they have reaped the benefits of replacing Phil Scolari as head coach with Dunga. The former Brazilian midfielder is back for his second stint as boss of the national side and he has made a perfect start with seven wins from seven, including Thursday's come-from-behind 3-1 victory over France in Paris.

Brazil are a best price 5/6 to make it eight wins on the bounce with Paddy Power on Sunday and they will be quietly confident as they bid to justify their position as favourites for the Copa America later this year. They have won four of the last six editions of the tournament and they look to have a great chance of regaining their crown from Uruguay, particularly if Neymar continues his sensational run of scoring form.

The Barcelona forward has scored 17 goals in Liga this term and he has been prolific for the national side, scoring 16 goals in his last 15 international appearances. Neymar is 4/1 to be first goalscorer with Ladbrokes or even-money to score at anytime with Betfred as he bids to add to his haul of 43 goals in 61 appearances for Brazil.

It is defensively that Brazil have been most-improved since the World Cup though as they have kept five clean sheets in seven games with Dunga in charge. They are 23/10 to win to nil with Paddy Power on Sunday and they do boast a formidable record in meetings with Chile as they are unbeaten in the last 13 clashes since August 2000, winning 11 and drawing 2.

Chile have failed to score in six of those thirteen defeats to Brazil but they did push them close at the World Cup last year as they drew 1-1 in the last-sixteen before crashing out 3-2 on penalties. Jorge Sampaoli's side will be out for revenge this weekend and they are 10/3 to win or 23/10 to draw at The Emirates, where Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez will be looking forward to playing on his home ground.

Sanchez has scored 13 goals for Arsenal in the league this season and he is 7/1 to be first goalscorer with Ladbrokes, although Chile's form since the World Cup is scratchy. They have win just four of their last eight internationals (drawn two, lost two) after they slumped to a 2-0 defeat to Iran earlier in the week and their record in matches outside of Chile is woeful as they have won two, drawn two and lost five of their last nine away from home.
