Argentina vs Paraguay: Prediction and Betting Tips
Argentina looking for a second consecutive win
Argentina are keen to keep their record clean of defeats in Copa America 2021 as they want to make sure to win group A and avoid a clash with Brazil or Colombia in the quarter-final. The Albiceleste last beat Bolivia back in the 2015 edition of Copa America but haven’t won against the Bolivians in their last four H2H matches.
In their last match, Argentina beat a strong Uruguay side, a win that ended three consecutive draws in all competitive games. It was Luis Scaloni’s team’s first clean sheet in three matches as well. Lionel Messi and his teammates had the lesser share of the ball possession against Uruguay but an assist by Leo set up Rodriguez to score and win the three points.
Argentina Key Points
- Argentina are on a 15 match winning streak
- Argentina have scored in all of their last ten matches
- Argentina have scored 1.4 goals per match in their last ten matches
A good start for Paraguay
Two-time Copa America winners Paraguay have last won the title in 1979. They qualified for the second round of the tournament in nine of their last 11 appearances. Coach Berizzo’s team had a very good start to their Copa America campaign by beating Bolivia 3-1. That win will be the confidence booster as they play Argentina against whom they haven’t lost in four games.
In their match against Bolivia, Paraguay completely dominated the game with 78% of ball possession, and 649 passes were played between their players. It could have been a win with a much bigger margin had Berrizo’s players converted more of their 34 goal attempts in the match.
Paraguay Key points
- Paraguay have lost one of their last ten matches in Copa America
- BTTS happened in 50% of Paraguay’s last ten matches
- Paraguay have failed to score in three of their last ten matches
Argentina vs Paraguay Prediction
Lionel Messi is keen to win his first international trophy with Argentina and he looks in great form. The 33-year-old scored the goal against Chile and delivered the assist against Uruguay.
Coming into this match, Paraguay have been a tough opponent for Argentina in their last four H2H games. Coach Berizzo’s team play a very low defensive line against tough opponents and Argentina suffered in their last match in the World Cup Qualifiers.
There is a 55% chance of both teams scoring with the bookies and it happened also in the last two H2H. We think we will see goals at both ends.
