Cameroon booked their Confed Cup ticket after winning AFCON 2017 in February but they have plenty to do if they are to get a crack at the 2018 World Cup as they drew their first two qualifiers 1-1 with Zambia and Algeria. Since their AFCON win Cameroon did beat Morocco 1-0 in a qualifier for the 2019 edition of that tournament but their most recent friendly international saw them go down 4-0 to Colombia.
Chile earned their place in the tournament for the first time as winners of Copa America. They are currently fourth in the standings in World Cup 2018 qualifying with a record of seven wins, two draws and five defeats against their name and the top five nations in that region will be assured of a place in the World Cup finals next year. Alexis Sanchez is the headline act in the squad and three recent friendly matches used to tune up for this tournament delivered mixed results, a 3-0 win over Burkina Faso, 1-1 draw with Russia and 3-2 loss to Romania.

Bet: Anytime Goalscorer, Alexis Sanchez at 23/20
Sanchez gets our vote to pop up with a goal “anytime” for Chile who might well have too much for the AFCON champions.
