Chile vs Paraguay: Brasilia stalemate looks best bet

Kick-off: 0100, 25/06/2021

Stadium: Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha

TV: BBC Digital

Chile have already qualified for the quarter-finals of Copa America, so Paraguay may be worth backing to get a point in Brasilia.

Los Guaranies have only suffered one group-stage exit in the last six renewals, often advancing due to being draw specialists.

Including this tournament, their recent record is two wins, 12 draws and seven defeats from the past 21 games.

A stalemate would suit here and 15/8 for that outcome is our first Chile vs Paraguay prediction.

A Look At Chile’s Betting Odds

Chile have also been involved in more than their fair share of draws this summer, with Monday’s 1-1 stalemate versus Uruguay being a fourth in five outings.

La Roja picked up a point in both World Cup qualifiers before starting out this tournament with a 1-1 draw versus Argentina.

A 1-0 defeat of Bolivia put the 2015 and 2016 champions in pole position to progress and matching La Celeste made sure of a place in the last eight.

Stoke-born Blackburn striker Ben Brereton has been a pleasant surprise so far, scoring one goal and assisting another.

Eduardo Vargas is still a threat up front while Arturo Vidal has occupied more of an advanced role to cover for the absence of Alexis Sanchez.

However, with an ageing team facing a sixth match in three weeks, Martin Lasarte may opt to rest some key players here.

Looking at the 21/4 for La Roja to draw 1-1 for the fifth time this month.

A Look At Paraguay’s Betting Odds

Paraguay kicked off their Group A campaign by coming from behind to beat Bolivia 3-1, with Kaku equalising before a double from Angel Romero.

Los Guaranies then went down 1-0 to Argentina, when outplayed by the pool leaders in the opening period before rallying bravely after the break.

Newcastle playmaker Miguel Almiron and West Ham defender Fabian Balbuena are familiar faces in a hard-working side.

A couple of first-choice forwards are missing but Romero now has a respectable eight goals in 28 international appearances.

Former Celta Vigo, Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao boss Eduardo Berizzo was an accomplished centre-half in his playing days and likes to build from the back.

Paraguay have drawn four of their first six World Cup qualifiers, including a goalless stalemate with Uruguay earlier this month.

Let’s finish off our Chile vs Paraguay betting tips by taking 29/10 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.
