If either of these sides want to follow Spain through to the last 16 of the 2010 World Cup then they will need to take a win here, Group H is looking like a fight for that second spot behind the favourites, Spain. It is expected that the fight for second spot will be between these two teams making the match at Ellis Park absolutely crucial for both sides. Switzerland surprised many during qualification to take an automatic spot for South Africa and they have impressed many with their strong defence, they are difficult to beat with Ottmar Hitzfeld in charge and will fancy their chances of turning over Chile. The South Americans though also impressed during qualification and will be the slight favourites to take the win here and the three points.

They only came in behind Brazil in South America which shows their progress, if Chile can replicate that form then they will be in good shape to take the win here and move towards the knock-out stages. Both teams won their opening matches as Chile beat Honduras and Switzerland upset the odds beating favourites Spain.

Chile v Switzerland Match Betting

Chile are the even money favourites to claim the three points against the Swiss, the South Americans came through a tough qualifying section and are being backed to carry on that good form. The Swiss should not be ruled out though as they are more than capable of turning over Chile at Ellis Park, as there result against Spain proved. All three results are more than possible meaning there is some excellent value on offer for punters.

Match Day Squads and Key Players

The starting line-ups for both sides will be the subject of much interest in the build up to the game and we will be assessing the quality of each team. Chile are a strong South American team as they have showed over the past couple of years, they came in second behind Brazil in qualification to the surprise of many. They will be looking towards the likes of Carlos Carmona and Gary Medal to stand up and be counted when they meet Switzerland.

Switzerland are similar as they have also shown vast improvement during qualification, they have some good experienced players in their ranks and will be hoping to avoid any injuries before playing Chile. They will need Valon Behrami of West Ham and Philippe Senderos of Everton to be fit and on form if they are to have a chance of upsetting the odds and winning this one.

Recent Meetings and Results

There have been no recent meeting s between these two for punters to study but it is clear that this will be a tight match that is difficult to call. All three results are more than a possibility with perhaps the clever money being placed on a draw as both teams look to avoid losing. Chile may be more inclined to take the game to Switzerland as they do play Spain in their final match and would not want to leave themselves having to beat the Euro 2008 winners.

The final result will have a big bearing on the final outcome of Group H as both teams scramble to make it into the top two, the outcome could be the difference between a successful and a poor World Cup campaign.
