It’s obvious who the favorite in this match is. According to the bookies, Brazil is the team that’s most likely to win Copa America 2019. But, to do that, the first obstacle they need to pass is Paraguay. These two play at the Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre and if you want to make some money off this game, you’re at the right place. Here are our Brazil vs Paraguay prediction and betting tips!
We’ll start this Brazil vs Paraguay prediction by reminding ourselves that Brazil is the host nation of the tournament. But, that’s not the main reason why this team is the number 1 favorite for winning the trophy. They’re full of extremely talented players, even though their most famous player, Neymar, is out of the squad. Still, this team has plenty of others who can take his place.
But, it didn’t seem like that at the start of the tournament. They did beat Bolivia 3:0 in the first match, but they struggled to find the net for over a whole half. Then, in the second round, they played 0:0 with Venezuela, after which their fans were booed off the pitch.
However, in the third round, they showed their real power. They hammered Peru 5:0 and now seem more than capable of doing the same thing against Paraguay. The last time these two played, it was 3:0 for Brazil. It was in the World Cup qualifiers in 2017, but Brazil now look even more confident and even more motivated to do even better.
It seems everyone knows what’s going to happen in this game. Brazil are going to attack, Paraguay are going to defend. But, even if they defend with all they got, Paraguay seem unlikely to keep their net safe the entire match. Actually, the only question here is how many goals they are going to allow.
They did okay defensively in the group stage, allowing only one goal both against Argentina and against Colombia. And in those games, they defended ferociously. In the game with Qatar, they played more openly, the result of which were two goals in their net.
What this means is that if Brazil score early on, Paraguay will have no other option but to try to fight back. Unfortunately for them, such a thing would probably end in a disaster. Trying to attack against Brazil means leaving open space at the back. And that means a lot of goals in their net. And that’s exactly what we’re going to recommend putting your money on in our Brazil vs Paraguay betting tips!
But, before we go there, it’s time to see which eleven players are the managers of these two teams pick for the clash.
Alisson – Silva, Marquinhos, Alves, Filipe Luis – Casemiro, Arthur, Coutinho – Everton, Gabriel Jesus, Firmino
Fernandez – Gomez, Alonso, Piris, Arzamendia – Sanchez, Rodrigo Rojas, Matias Rojas, Gonzalez, Almiron – Santander
Brazil vs Paraguay Prediction
It would be a huge disaster if Brazil got knocked out from this competition by Paraguay. But, the chances for something like that happening are very, very slim. In fact, it seems that just the opposite is going to happen. Brazil are going to hammer Paraguay, in the same manner, they hammered Peru. Perhaps, even more dominantly.
