Paraguay are #58th on the FIFA World Ranking List and the second-worst team in the South American region, only above Bolivia. They are definitely a team on the decline, as they failed to appear in the last three World Cups and were far from impressive in this WC Qualifications cycle. However, they did have some success in the Copa America, reaching the Quarter-Finals in the previous two tournaments. Unfortunately for them, they opened this Copa America with a loss against Colombia and are under pressure to win points in the upcoming game in order to have some chance of reaching the second stage.

Brazil, one of the best national teams in the World, have been far from its expected level in recent years. They have not won a title in the last five World Cups and have won only one Copa America title in the last five tournaments. Even when they did win, it was as the hosts. In this Copa America, Brazil opened with a goalless draw against Costa Rica. However, the bookies still consider them as the second-favorite for the title, only behind Argentina.

Paraguay vs Brazil pick: Under 2.5 goals

Before the Copa America, Paraguay played only low-scoring games in the World Cup Qualifiers. Their six games in the Qualifiers were all under 2.5 goals, with only one scored goal - 0.17 per game. So, we do not expect they can score against Brazil.

Brazil is in terrible form. If we exclude the friendlies, they have not won in the last five matches while scoring only two goals! In the first game of Copa America, they had 70% ball possession and 19 goal attempts, but those were far from clear-cut chances.

In the previous three h2h games, we saw fewer than three goals on two occasions. Considering all the above, an under 2.5 goals bet should be the best option for this Copa America match.

Paraguay team news

After a 2:1 loss to Colombia in the first match, coach Daniel Garnero spoke to the media. He wasn't too unhappy with the loss, saying he saw some positives against an excellent rival. "We knew it was going to be very difficult against a rival that does possession in its own way. It is difficult to take the ball away from a team that plays so well," the coach added.

The team is missing Antonio Sanabria with an injury. Torino's striker was the Paraguay's starting forward in the last two World Cup Qualifier matches.
