So, super early pick because we already have super early drops and I believe odds will keep dropping hard until the kickoff. Anyway pretty nice limits and I think is worth to invest in advance on this game. Chile is in the hardest group of the WC, against Netherlands, Spain and Australia; and despite that I consider that Chile has not a bad chance to qualify to next round, either letting out to Spain or Netherlands, is more than evident than the "must win" game is against Australia and as the first game of Chile will be this one, the team will be forced to win and will use the best lineup that can use. Chile in hands of Sampaoli lost only 2 games, an undeserved one against Peru and a deserved one against Brazil in a friendly game, but Chile using B team. Then all the other games were victories and draws, I must say lucky draws with Spain Brazil and Colombia drawing in the last minute but with Chile playing better. The same team will play against Australia and I would be surprised if the victory is only by 1 goal or even more if the result is worse than that. About Australia, they sadly got in this hell group and to me they have no chances. They got nice results in last friendly games against Costa Rica and Canada, both quite weak, but facing real teams they were beaten easily, like France and Brazil that took the game 6-0. Australia is trying new players on the friendly games they are playing, and now will try against Ecuador and Croatia, possibly with 5 or 6 substitutions in the game. To reach the WC they faced only weak teams so it's not to conclude they are playing good. About the game is obviously too early to say something, but the expected game must be a defensive one by Australia and an offensive one by Chile; the anxiety of first game of WC can play a role here too, but after some minutes playing, the veteran players should put the Chilean team into a good speed allowing good chances of goal and, if all is ok, a victory for a nice margin.
