Now starts the real excitement at Copa America. The quarterfinals are ahead of us, and there isn’t a room for the slightest mistake anymore. One sloppy reaction or one misjudged cross could mean that you are out of the competition. For Brazil, the pressure is multiplied than during the group stage. On the other hand, it is different for the Paraguayans who are underdogs in this one.

Selecao showed its real strength against Peru when it mattered the most. They completely annihilated the old rival, with 5-0, presenting its quality in the best possible way. Believe it or not, this was their fifth straight game in which Alisson didn’t have to take the ball out of his net. During that time, Brazil recorded four wins and one draw, with a total goal difference of 17-0. It is pretty impressive. Though, we can’t say that they looked this good against Bolivia and Venezuela in the opening two events of this competition. In general, the tough defence is the trademark of this crew, with 8 clean sheets over the latest 10 contests.

Believe it or not, Paraguay progressed to the second round without a single win and with a negative goal difference. Still, they ended as the second-best third-placed team and managed to reach the knockout stage of this tournament. The White and Red opened this competition with a surprising draw against Qatar, which could have cost them a lot. Luckily, a draw against Argentina, 1-1 in the next round brought that point which was vital for their progress to the next phase. Paraguay plays low scoring affairs, and their games usually end with under 2.5 goals. To be precise, four of the last five saw that happening, and in the previous 10 matches, seven had the same ending.

Team News

Casemiro got the yellow card against Venezuela and did the same against Peru. Because of that Real Madrid’s midfielder won’t be eligible for this event. Coutinho has one booking too and needs to be careful.

Paraguay doesn’t have any suspended players. Four of them have yellow cards, Piris, Rojas, Gomez, and Arzamendia.

Argentina to win Copa America

Prediction

Stakes are high, and as we said, there is no room for any mistakes, especially on Brazil’s side. We are absolutely positive that Tite’s defence is going to be at the highest possible level. We already saw their domination in the recent few matches, which is why we suggest another clean sheet on their account. Paraguay’s offence really looks pale despite scoring against Argentina. So, for the first bet, Brazil to keep a clean sheet. If you choose bet365, they will give you a chance to win 50% of your stake, because they offer odds at 1/2.

Out from the above-written paragraph comes the second betting tip., and that is Brazil’s victory. If they play this match as they did against Peru, there won’t be a theoretical chance for Paraguay to avoid a defeat. Having in mind that the odds on common triumph are not good at all and that Brazil did look very good in the latest encounter, we would go with Brazil to win with an Asian handicap, -1.5 goals. Unibet is offering solid profits here, as their odds are at 11/20.
