In this post betting tips and preview of Peru-Paraguay, the final for the 3rd place of this Copa America.
PERU - PARAGUAY
Finals for the 3rd place are often "weird" matches, in the sense that not always reflect what we would expect in normal situations. In most cases motivations are gone and in other occasions
determining is the result of the semifinal (i.e. Brazil in the last World Cup which has lost 3-0 vs Netherlands playing really bad after the 7-1 vs Germany).
Paraguay lost 6-1 vs Argentina, although a good first half, while Peru showed another good performance vs Chile and nobody knows how this match would have ended if Zambrano hadn't been sent off after 20 minutes: since that moment Chile hadn't created goals occasions and as usual Peru had been dangerous with its fast counterattacks.
Both forwarders Guerrero and Barrios have scored 3 goals till now and they are 1 goal below Edu Vargas in the topscorers tables.
Considering their wish to score we expect to see a match with no big use of tactics. Moreover Paraguay has always scored and conceded at least 1 goal in any match played in this competition exception made vs Jamaica (the only team unable to score in the cup). Paraguay hasn't got a good defensive organization but at the same time the offensive phase is fearful.
Peruan defensive phase has been good in this Copa America, but for the next match its best defender, Zambrano, is unavailable.
We expect to see a match where goals should not be missing.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE and OVER 2.5 should be the best solutions.
