African Champions, Cameroon, will today take on Chile in the Match-day two of the FIFA Confederation Cup at the Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow. The match will be shown live to StarTimes subscribers on its ST World Football Channel 244 and 254.
Cameroon, making a comeback 14 years after it last qualified for the football fiesta, will be participating for the third time in the history of the competition. It was in 2003 that the Indomitable Lions gave their best performance by reaching the stage of the final against France. Mourning after the tragic death of Marc-Vivien FoÃ©, the Cameroonians fell 0-1 in extra time.
However, after winning the AFCON 2017, it is once again with the status of outsider that Cameroon will be hoping to make a good statement as it happened in 2003. The Indomitable Lions are rated at 18.00 on Betclic in case of triumph.
The Chileans on the other hand are hoping to create a big surprise. By winning the Copa AmÃ©rica in front of its public, the Chilean selection validated its ticket for the Confederations Cup in Russia. For this first participation, analysts believe the team led by Juan Antonio Pizzi will try to play cunningly its chance and surprise the planet football.
â€œThe Chileans have a quality team with players such as Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal capable of reversing the fate of any meeting, thanks to their unusual individualityâ€. Betclic offers a rating of 3.30 for a crown of Chile in this competition.
