Peru vs Paraguay Betting Tips & Predictions

Copa America 2021 has not offered any big surprises so far. The big favourites, Brazil and Argentina, both won their groups, meaning the table is served for a dream final at Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro on the 10th of July. The only disappointment at Copa America has been Colombia, who only managed to gather four points in the same number of matches. Still enough for a spot in the playoff, but ending behind Brazil and Peru.

In regards to Peru, our expectations were not very high, especially as Gareca decided not to include Farfan and Guerrero in his team. Instead players like Carrillo, Lapadula and Cueva took the spots in the team. Maybe it’s the right decision too, as the mentioned players are becoming of age, and a generation change is needed. The younger generation has done well by conquering the second place finish in Group B, just beaten by Brazil. We still have to say that the finish does look better than how the performances have actually looked.

Paraguay will be the next opponent for Peru, and they are both teams void of super stars. It’s still a fact that both these teams can show brilliance from time to time, and even surprise the favourites, but those flashes are few and far between. In the group stage Paraguay managed two wins two matches out of four, which was enough for a third place finish in Group A.

Our betting tip: BTTS: No, to odds 1.75+

Neither Peru nor Paraguay are teams that usually score a lot of goals, and when the teams go up against each other we definitely expect a match with few goals scored. We will go with the odds of one team failing to score in this match, better known as BTTS: No. An option could be to add Under 2.5 Goals to that bet and spice it up a bit extra, and we do feel quite confident with doing that too.

Peru vs Paraguay Copa America Game Analysis, Odds and Betting Predictions

Paraguay has, believe it or not, managed to win Copa America twice, but it was a good while since the last time in 1979. That time Paraguay beat Chile in the final that around then was played best of three. Since the Copa gold in 1979 the Paraguayan team has not been as successful. The closest they have got to gold was in 2011 when they lost the final against Uruguay, 0-3.

Despite not being able to match the top nations in South America on a regular basis, they do have the ability to pull off a surprise now and then. In Copa America 2019 penalties decided the fate of Paraguay against Brazil in the 1/16 final, despite a massive pressure from the Brazilians.

Paraguay does not exactly swarm with star footballers from an international perspective, and while they haven’t done so historically either, there are a few recognizable names: Roque Santa Cruz, Óscar Cardozo and the charismatic goalkeeper José Luis Chilavert stand out among the others. This year’s iteration of the Paraguayan squad has no real stars, but if we had to make a pick then it would be Newcastle’s Migual Almiron. He has been a starting player in the Premier League since 2019/20. Peru is similar to Paraguay in this regard, but a player that has stood out during Copa America 2021 is Andre Carrillo, who plays for Al-Hilal. Thus far he has scored two very important goals for Peru to secure a playoff ticket.

Peru - Overview & Facts

Peru surprised in Copa America 2019 and went all the way to the final. A big part of the success that time around came through the veteran striker, Paulo Guerrero, who scored three crucial goals. This was also enough to share the top scorer award with Brazil’s Everton. In the absence of Guerrero in 2021, other players have stepped up to fill his shoes. The Italian born Lapadula is the man who has got the trust up front for Peru in all matches of Copa America so far, and he has delivered. In the latest match against Venezuela he had Cueva, Pena and Carrillo behind him in the offense, and we expect the same starters against Paraguay.

Peru to win Copa America

Ahead of Copa America 2021 there were few people who expected Peru to repeat their success from the previous championship. Looking at the draw they are still miles from repeating it, even if only two matches separates them from it. This is due to most likely going up against Brazil in a potential semi-final. The Brazilian superstars have been impressive thus far, and them failing to reach the final on home soil seems unlikely. First Peru would have to get past Paraguay to even get a chance though.

Peru’s Five Latest:

  • Venezuela - Peru 0-1 (Copa America)
  • Ecuador - Peru 2-2 (Copa America)
  • Colombia - Peru 1-2 (Copa America)
  • Brazil - Peru 4-0 (Copa America)
  • Ecuador - Peru 1-2 (WC Qualifiers)

Peru have started the World Cup qualifiers very modestly despite winning their latest match against Ecuador, 2-1. In total only four points have been gathered in six matches, placing Peru last in the qualification. Copa America has been better, but still an up and down story, that began with a crushing four goal loss to Brazil. A surprising win against Colombia followed to give new hope, and as a draw and another win cluncluded the group stage, it’s fair to say that Peru met, or even exceeded expectations.

Expected Starting 11:

Gallese; Corzo, Ramos, Callens, Trauco; Yotun, Tapia; Carrillo, Pena, Cueva; Lapadula

Paraguay - Overview & Facts

Paraguay is a team who are more often than not hard to judge, and in Copa America 2021 that keeps on being the case. In the group stage they started with a win against Bolivia (3-1), followed by a loss to Argentina (1-0), before they went on winning ways again against Chile (2-0). In the last match they had their sights on grabbing a second place finish, but the Paraguyans lost to Uruguay after a penalty goal by Cavanni being the game decider.

After four played matches, Paraguay has scored five goals and conceded three. It’s without a doubt the defence that is the Paraguayan trademark, just like in recent years.The centre backs, Alonso and Gomez, give the team a solid foundation that could carry them far in Copa America. The offense is not on the same level, and that’s where the issues are found without a doubt.

Paraguay’s Five Latest:

  • Uruguay - Paraguay 1-0 (Copa America)
  • Chile - Paraguay 0-2 (Copa America)
  • Argentina - Paraguay 1-0 (Copa America)
  • Paraguay - Bolivia 3-1 (Copa America)
  • Paraguay - Brazil 0-2 (Copa America)

Paraguay have started the World Cup qualification a bit stronger than the upcoming opponent, Peru. In six matches they have managed to grab seven points after 1 win, 4 draws and 1 loss. The only loss has been conceded against the magnificent Brazil. If Paraguay wants a place in Qatar 2022 they better start picking up more points fast, as the current trajectory won’t be enough. Copa America has thus far been a solid performance, especially defensively, but will that be enough against Peru?

Expected Starting 11:

Silva; Espinola, Balbuena, Alonso, Arzamendia; Villasanti, Lucena; Angel Romero, Almiron, Alejandro Romero; Gonzalez
