Brazil vs Paraguay
Competition – Copa America
Stadium – Grêmio Arena
Date: 27th June 2019
Kick-off time – 01:30 BST (28th)
Brazil are favourites to win the Copa America due to a number of factors that seems to put them as the best side in this continent.
They were the most successful team from this region at the last World Cup and they have not been beaten since that quarterfinals defeat at the hands of Belgium.
They also have home advantage on their side as this competition is being played in front of their home fans.
Brazil have made a start-stop-start beginning to the competition and come here with a place in the semifinal up for grabs so expect them to fight for their nation in this game against a Paraguayan side that certainly have enough players that can shock them.
Since 1979 Paraguay haven’t won this competition and they have also reached this stage on only four occasions since then, so we can say that they don’t really have pedigree in this competition, but competitions like this give room for surprises.
Paraguay were on a run of poor form before this tournament having won just 1 of 11 games. They also only reached this round after being selected as one of the best losers while they won 0 games during qualification.
It’s hard to see Paraguay getting anything this game considering the amount of support the Brazilians will get and their array of stars.
Bookmakers have priced Brazil up as strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Paraguay seemingly need a miracle to progress.
Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Fernando Gabriel Jesus and de Andrade Richarlison are vying for favourtism in the first goalscorer market.
