Torres & Villa 4/1 to score as Spain push for qualification

The closing matches of Group H promise to make Friday afternoon a thriller.

The position of Chile in Group H is considerably more comfortable than that of the Spanish and the South American side look set to prove no pushovers as the two sides clash in their final Group H match on Friday.

Spain are priced at 4/9 to win the match in 90 minutes however even three points won't confirm the Spanish side as qualified from the group, so with a win required the forwards will have to have a good day.

With this in mind, William Hill's enhanced goal scorer double has to be a consideration.

Star striker David Villa opened his account with a brace against Honduras in the last match, (missing a penalty to confirm his hat trick) but Fernando Torres was once again unable to find the back of the net and with a summer move from Anfield likely, the forward would love to shine on the international stage and Friday could be his last opportunity before Spain exit the World Cup.

It's time for the Spanish strikers to shine and huge odds of 4/1, our special double featuring both David Villa AND Fernando Torres to net at any point in the 90 minutes against Chile looks too good to miss.

The result of this clash alone is not enough to confirm Spain's progression to the final 16 as at the same time will be the match between the other two teams in Group H, Switzerland and Honduras.

A draw against Chile would only serve fit if Switzerland were to produce an equal result against Honduras, but if Switzerland defeats Honduras and the Spanish did not better that result, the Spanish would be out of the World Cup. Unthinkable for a team with such ability but if Italy can lose to Slovakia, Spain could well be on the plane home.

If both the Swiss and Spanish win their final matches, Group H will have three teams on six points and it will come down to all-important goal difference.

So, as the world looks on in anticipation of a Spanish qualification, 90 minute underdogs Chile at 13/2 could be worth a  cheeky couple of quid for interest, but more likely to get you a return would be Spain -1 goal at 6/5.

With goal difference playing an important factor in this group, I'm sure we'll see, two, three, maybe even four Spanish goals as all cylinders fire at Chile.

Spain are still odds-on at 3/10 to qualify from Group H (8/11 to top the group) while current leaders Chile are 13/8 to maintain their position at the top of the pack come Friday evening.

Expect a world class performance worthy of a World Cup winning side.
