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.
