In this post betting tips and preview of Argentina - Paraguay, the second semifinal of this Copa America.
ARGENTINA - PARAGUAY
Argentina and Paraguay have already confronted each other in the first game of the group stage of this Copa America. Argentina was winning 2-0 in the first half but in the end Paraguay scored 2
goals and reached the draw.
Paraguay has showed great things in this Cup, it has never been beaten till now and has always recovered the disadvantage vs Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
All matches played by Paraguay have ended "BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE" exception made in the clash vs Jamaica (the only team unable to score in this competition).
This statistic let us understand how paraguayan defense is not that good but at the same time its offensive phase is really good because scoring vs Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil is not that expected.
Paraguay has good and experienced forwarders: Valdez, Santa Cruz, Barrios and also Derlis Gonzalez, althought his young age has showed good things during the last season with Basel.
Argentina surely has the best team of the competition and also in the first match vs Paraguay has showed its superiority.
In that occasion Argentina collected 69% ball possession, 18 shoot attempts and 9 corner kicks.
In our opinion Paraguay seems to be sentenced to elimination in this case.
The referee will be the brazilian Ricci, the one who sent off Cavani in Chile-Uruguay.
Ricci has showed 7 red cards in the last seven matches (between Copa Libertadores and Copa America) and considering that this Cup has been really nervous till now, we would not be surprised to see another red card in the next match.
ARGENTINA: Romero; Zabaleta, Garay, Otamendi, Rojo; Mascherano, Biglia, Pastore; Di María, Agüero, Messi.
PARAGUAY: Villar; Valdéz, Da Silva, Aguilar, Piris; González, Cáceres, Ortíz, Benítez; Haedo Valdéz, Santa Cruz.
ARGENTINA TO WIN (1.48 Matchbook)
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (2.37 Matchbook)
RED CARD YES (2.69 Matchbook)
CORRECT SCORE: 3-1
