Brazil can take a step towards the Copa America title by beating Paraguay in the quarter-final of the competition later today.
Argentina’s elimination from the tournament on penalties at the hands of Uruguay means Brazil’s path to the trophy appears to be clear.
But first they must get through a tricky encounter with Paraguay in order to seal a place in the semi-finals.
Brazil have been made the clear favourites and the football betting odds have them at 1/5 to go through.
This means those who expect the favourites to be in the semi-finals can place a £20 bet at bwin.com to earn returns of almost £25 if they are correct.
With Brazil’s passage to the next round almost assured, football betting fans looking for value in the market could look into the first goalscorer selections to make their money.
Understandably, Brazilians dominate the listings, with Pato and Fred among the most fancied players in the match at 9/2 and 5/1 respectively.
But if people fancy Paraguay to open the scoring surprisingly, a punt on star striker Lucas Barrios at 9/1 could be a good option for them to take.
Those who put a £20 bet on this selection at bwin.com could be in for impressive returns of £200 if Barrios hits the net before any other player in the game.
Brazil will be without Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro after he picked up an injury earlier in the competition that will also rule him out of the start of the Premier League campaign, as well as the rest of the Copa America.
Neymar is likely to be watched closely by a host of European clubs as he moves close to a transfer to the continent from his homeland, although his Copa America displays have been far from impressive so far.
