Peru vs Paraguay Betting Tip and Predictions. In the match for the 3rd place on Copa América, Peru take on Paraguay.
Peru finished the group phase on Copa América at the second position with only one lost match against Brazil in the first round, after Brazil scored the late goal and took all three points. In the other two matches in Group C, Peru beat Venezuela 1-0, while in the last match they took point against Colombia in the goalless draw and it was enough for them to qualify in the Quarter-finals where they eliminated Bolivia. In the semi finals Chile was better side and beat Peru 2-1. Peru played very solid on the match, but after Zambrano got an early red card in the 20th minute, it looked over and Chile qualified in the final. Despite the loss in the semi-final, Peru showed very quality football and without any doubt they will be fully motivated to reach the 3rd place.
Paraguay finished the group phase without defeated and announced that they can reach the semi-finals. In the semi finals they made great surprise after they eliminated Brazil after penalties, but Argentina was too strong for Paraguay and humiliated them 6-1. It’s questionable are they able to get back after that defeat and make some good result in the fight for the 3rd position, especially after their top scorer Santa Cruz picked up an injury in the previous match, while other important striker Valdez is doubtful, so their coach will have many problems in attack. Their defence is also pretty shaky – they conceded at least one goal in four of five matches on this tournament.
Peru miss Zambrano, who is out due to suspension, while Farfan is doubtful, but he should be in the first eleven.
On the other side, as I mentioned above, Paraguay will be without their top scorer Santa Cruz, while the striker Nelson Valdez and defender Bruno Valdez are both doubtful.
In the final of Copa America will play Chile vs Argentina.
Peru vs Paraguay possible line ups
Perú: Gallese; Advíncula, Ramos, Ascues, Vargas; Ballón, Lobatón, Cueva, Carrillo; Farfan, Guerrero.
Paraguay: Villar; Aguilar, B. Valdez, da Silva, Piris; González, Cáceres, Ortiz, Benítez; Valdez, Barrios.
Both teams have similar quality, but in this moment Peru looks like they are in the better position and I believe that they can win this game in the regular part of the match. As you know, if the match finish without winner, there is no extra-time. Penalties – roulette!
