In this post betting tips and preview of Paraguay-Jamaica, the first match of the second round in the Group B.
PARAGUAY - JAMAICA
Before the beginning of the Copa America Paraguay and Jamaica were considered too weak for competing against Argentina and Uruguay, but they showed some skills in the first round.
Jamaica played a good defensive match vs Uruguay and their pace apart, another good trait we noticed is their decent defensive organization, indeed Uruguay has won only with the minimum score and
hasn't created a lot of goals attempts.
Paraguay has obtained a great 2-2 draw against Argentina. They played an awful first half, conceding 2 goals to Messi & co, but they have been able to score twice in the second half.
Coach Diaz seems inclined to put in the pitch 2 strikers, Nelson Valdez and Roque Santa Cruz and two more offensive players as lateral midfielders (Bobadilla and Derlis Gonzalez).
This offensive approach could give jamaican players a lot of empty spaces to be attacked with their pace.
We expect Paraguay to win, but considering that this Copa America has been full of surprises till now, the option "BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE" has to be considered.
PARAGUAY: Antony Silva, Marcos Cáceres, Paulo da Silva, Pablo Aguilar, Miguel Samudio, Néstor Ortigoza, Víctor Cáceres, Derlis González, Raúl Bobadilla, Nelson Haedo Valdez,
Roque Santa Cruz.
JAMAICA: Duwayne Kerr; Michael Héctor, Wes Morgan, Adrian Mariappa, Kemar Lawrence; Rodolph Austin, Joel McAnuff, Garath McCleary; Simon Dawkins, Giles Barnes, Darren Mattocks.
