Japan will open their Copa America campaign against Chile in Sao Paulo in what will be considered as a fiery Copa America christening for Moriyasu’s men. They tried to prepare for the tournament by mostly playing South American sides in their friendly matches and will definitely not be surprised by some of their opponents.
However, that might not be the case when they face Chile as the Chileans have that South American temperament and then some. They won the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals by playing some of the most attacking, high tempo type of football the world has ever seen and if they repeat that here, they will definitely be too much for the Japanese.
Furthermore, in Alexis Sanchez, the Chileans have a player who has had a miserable European season after coming to Manchester United as one of the best players in the world. However, it is just not possible that he has become a bad player over the course of a season and he will definitely come at the Japanese with all guns blazing. After being on the bench for most of the season, he will have the energy to perform and the motivation to prove everyone wrong.
All in all, the Chileans should win this game comfortably and on top of backing them to win at full time at odds of 2/5 punters can also back them to win in both halves at odds of 6/5. In addition to this, betting enthusiasts simply must back Alexis Sanchez to score anytime in the match at odds of 21/20. They can also try backing him to score a brace at odds of 5/1 or even a hat-trick at odds of 20/1. While they are there they can also back Eduardo Vargas to score anytime as he simply loves playing at Copa America. He is given odds of 7/5 to do this.
