The Socceroos preliminary squad for the Confederations Cup and upcoming World Cup Qualifiers has just been announced, and online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened markets on the big matches during the busy schedule for our national side.
· Australia rank outsiders against Germany and Chile in Confederations Cup
· Socceroos $1.67 favourites against Saudi Arabia in World Cup Qualifier
At $1.40, Germany is expected to be too good for the Aussies ($7.00), but the Socceroos are a shorter $5.50 to upset Chile ($1.50) in their other Confederations Cup match.
But first, the World Cup Qualifier against Saudi Arabia takes precedence, and the Socceroos are the $1.67 favourites for the clash in Adelaide on June 8th.
Australia is expected to breeze past Thailand at $1.10, but we’re priced at $3.00 against Japan.
“It hasn’t been a great World Cup qualifying campaign so far, but at home and desperate, we see the Socceroos as justifiably odds on favourites against Saudi Arabia,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
