I don't know about you, but I've been finding the Confederations Cup a terrific competition to both watch and to trade. End-to-end football. Open, attacking, free-flowing play from fully committed players. Great stuff.

As mentioned in a previous post, before the tournament started, I was hoping that the Confederations Cup, having less kudos than the other major international competitions, would mean more attractive, uninhibited, open play - and happily it has certainly turned-out that way so far. I hope it continues.

Ten matches have been played to date. Nine out of the ten have seen over 2.5 goals - and even if you completely ignore the two matches involving Tahiti, which does squew the data, that still equates to 3.75 goals per game. That is highly unusual in international competition.

I traded with rather small stakes last night, but still found it relatively easy to make a profit. It's not always like that of course, but I'm grateful for those occasions when it is.

Tonight sees Uruguay against Tahiti, so I suppose the most active markets in that match will be the "Correct Score 2 Home" or the "Correct Score 3 Home" ones. Personally, I don't feel very comfortable trading these "dead-cert" kinds of matches so I'll probably just leave that one alone.

In the other match, Nigeria are up against it. They know that Uruguay will secure three points, so they have to beat the World and European Champions if they want to stay in the competition. Spain will want to continue their winning run. I hope that means another lively and entertaining game.

I really recommend that you watch and get involved in some trading of this competition. It's well worth it.
