In this post betting tips and preview of Brazil-Paraguay, the last quarterfinal of this Copa America.
BRAZIL - PARAGUAY
As we have already said, this is the weakest Brazil of the last 30 years (with Neymar...imagine it without).
Luckily Thiago Silva scored at the beginning of the match vs Peru and that facilitated a lot Brazil chances to get the qualification for the final stage (goal occurred on dead ball occasion, not after an offensive manouver).
Brazil has a lot of very skilled players, true, but Paraguay is a well organized team, with a good defensive solidity.
Paraguay has drawn vs Argentina and Uruguay and won easily vs Jamaica, showing a great character. There are no good defenders but all midfielders give their contribute in the defensive phase.
It is not going to be easy for Brazil and in our opinion bookmakers' odds are too optimistic for Brazil.
We expect to see a match with few goals, where Paraguay will try to contain Brazil's attacks and create occasions counterattacking.
BRAZIL: Jefferson, Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, Miranda, Filipe Luis, Fernandinho, Willian, Elías, Coutinho, Robinho, Firmino.
PARAGUAY: Villar, Valdez, Da Silva, Aguilar, Piris, Caceres, Gonzalez, Ortigoza, Bobadilla, Santa Cruz, Barrios.
