Copa America - Paraguay preview
Argentina – Uruguay – Paraguay – Jamaica
Group B looks a straight up win job for Argentina. Uruguay are missing a few players and the main man in Suarez. Paraguay are at their lowest for some years and Jamaica are well Jamaica.
Ok let’s break down the teams with some outright betting, Group Winners and anything else that presents itself!
PARAGUAY (Ranked 11th in Comnebol)
2014-15 Form: 2 wins, 4 draws, 5 losses. – Win % 18%
2014-15 Top Scorers: R.Santa Cruz 4, D.Gonzalez 1
Paraguay are in poor form and have just two wins in 18 months. They have lost to the like of China, Costa Rica and South Korea in that time – plus drawing at home to UAE. They will be without Nelson Haedo-Valdez for game 1 due to suspension. They have a very experience side and play with a small core of players. They would be playing with the similar dour and rigid systems they have used over the past decade. Im not confident they will go far here.
I think the best they can do is third here. Their only chance is beating Jamaica as I don’t believe they will do anything but lose to Argentina and at best a draw with Paraguay. No bet for me on Paraguay.
If you want to play you can take Group win at 14-1 Bet365. You can also get Top 2 finish at 9-4 or 3.25 with Willhill.
