FIFA World Cup: Netherlands Vs Chile
When Netherlands play Chile tonight in their Group B encounter, the winner of the clash is set to top the group and could avoid Brazil in the round of 16, where the home team is expected to top the group from Group A. Netherlands and Chile have looked a confident outfit as they have defeated Spain and Australia prior to the fixture, so they must be high on confidence.

Chile, inspite of having a well balanced side has shocked many when they defeated the defending champions, Spain from the competition. Even Netherlands thrashed Spain earlier in the competition, making them strong favourites to top the group.

But, Netherlands are aware of the threat the Chilean team can serve on their table after the splendid display against Spain. The Chileans may not comprise of a host number of stars like their counterparts,  who boasts of big name players including Robben, Sneijder, Blind, Robben just to name a few.

Netherlands showed their true class when they thrashed Spain 5-1, and they showed their true character when they came from behind to win against Australia, 3-2. The game spoke volumes about the determination of the Dutch players to go full distance in the competition this time around.

Chile, since the start of the competition had been taken as one of the dark horses in the tournament, but with their recent performances, many feel, if they click, could pose a great threat to their opponent. 

Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas, Arturo Vidal are three players which the Chileans fans would be praying to help them top the Group. The trio have been their best player, with Sanchez turning up with an A class game - providing a constant threat with his skills.

But, the game is expected to be an entertaining one for neutral fans in Brazil, who would love the beautiful game of football turn victorious.
