The speed and finesse of the Samba Legends proved too much for a Chilean side who was more or less beat from first kick of the ball. Although it took over a half of an hour to put one into the net, the Brazilians were visibly in the ascendancy.

The scoring was opened by tall defender Juan off of a corner kick. The Chileans had a right to a foul cry because as the ball was being stroked into the net, one of their men was pushed straight down. But it proved to make little difference as only 4 minutes later the ball was once being picked out of the net by Bravo as Luis Fabiano skipped by the keeper and tucked the ball away in front of a gaping goalmouth.

The 3-0 win sets up an epic clash between World powers from Europe (Netherlands) and South America.The game between Brazil and the Oranje will be a rematch from 1998 in France where Dunga’s side beat the Dutch in penalties. Although that game has very few ramifications on this quarterfinal matchup, it will be a revenge match nonetheless. The Brazilian side is hard to pick against because of their recent form, but at the same time, Holland has looked almost as enticing. I think the game will once more head into extra time with Brazil prevailing after 120 minutes.

Sportsbook.com has Brazil sitting at +105 on the moneyline, and the Netherlands at +250.
