Tip Argentina - Paraguay
Argentina are favorites to win the Copa America and after a rather good start, they will be hoping to secure their place in the next round with a win over Paraguay. Paraguay have played one game so far, and won it, while Argentina have a draw and a win in their opening two games. Argentina are coming from a 1-0 win over a strong Uruguay side and will be happy to have ended a run of three straight draws as well as getting their first clean sheet in four matches. They are unbeaten in the last 15 matches though and will be relying on the Lionel Messi magic more here, with the Barcelona man enjoying a good run. Messi has won two Man of the Match awards in the two matches Argentina have played and he will definitely be the man to watch here.
Paraguay are third on three points in this group and after opening their Copa America campaign with a 3-1 win over Bolivia they’ll be looking to make it two in two and go top. They haven’t had the best of runs though; in their last five matches they have just one win, that being against Bolivia ahead of this clash. They have one clean sheet only in the five matches and twice in them, they’ve failed to score. Alejandro Romero and Angel Romero have been the leading lights for Paraguay as far as attack is concerned. The two have scored all of the six goals the team has managed in the last five matches. The two were on show in the 3-1 win over Bolivia with Angel scoring two. With only one loss in their last 10 matches, and boosted by their first win in five, Paraguay will feel capable of taking on Argentina. Having gone unbeaten in the last four matches against Argentina should reinforce this belief. Three of these four matches have ended in draws.
Key points Argentina - Paraguay
Argentina have no loss in the last 15 matches.
Paraguay and Argentina have drawn three of their last four meetings.
Argentina have one clean sheet in the last four matches.
Paraguay have one win in their last five matches.
Conclusion Argentina - Paraguay
These two sides have registered draws in three of their last four meetings. Paraguay possess the ability to frustrate opponents especially with low defensive blocks; they did this to Argentina and Uruguay in the World Cup qualifiers earlier and may employ the same here. Argentina haven’t been scoring a lot of goals lately and will rely heavily on Lionel Messi’s class once again to open up Paraguay. They have the better run and players, and should get a win here.
