Portugal vs Chile: 30/1 Betting Odds on Selecao

While Portugal, led by the impressive Cristiano Ronaldo, are 6/4 (2.50) favourites to win at the Kazan Arena, the South American side have plenty of experience when it comes to getting the better of more fancied sides on the worldwide stage.

"They are a very hard opponent", said Pizzi.

Tomorrow, world champions Germany place Mexico in the second semi-final of the eight-team tournament used as a trial event for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Mexico might at least be a little apprehensive over facing Julian Draxler, who has responded to taking on the captaincy of an experimental Germany squad in Russian Federation by turning in a string of dazzling displays.

Having announced that he would like to meet Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi today, Portugal's Luis Miguel Afonso Fernandes, better known as "Pizzi", said: "When I was young, he used to play for Barcelona and he was right on top of his game". Neither had won a major trophy until 2015 - but Chile now has two Copa Americas, while Portugal became European champion previous year.

It means Juan Antonio Pizzi's side must return to Kazan Arena to face Group A victor Portugal, a team it last met in a friendly match in 2011, which finished 1-1.

"Of course, we analyse our opponents every time we play". "Other teams know it, they prepare for us, they don't take the initiative, and then they capitalize on our mistakes". Chile will play on Wednesday in the final match.

"He's giving his best here and I think most players would like to be in a similar situation, because the best squads in the world want to have him, even if he is already at a good club", said Pizzi.

Portugal will be without Pepe who is serving out a suspension through two yellow cards but Santos' side will have the services of star striker Ronaldo, Joao Moutinho, Andre Gomes and Bernardo Silva.

The South Americans thought they had picked out the lead just a few minutes into extra time when Alexis Sanchez's header glanced just wide of goal.
