Past results between the Argentina and Paraguay suggest we could be in for a close affair, with two wins apiece and two draws in their last six meetings.
Both sides will be looking to get an early victory in ahead of the Copa America, which takes place in Argentina in July.
The men in blue and white have home advantage and this is reflected by the odds on bwin.com. Sergio Batista’s side are 1/2 favourites to emerge victorious, while Paraguay find themselves 5/1 outsiders.
Previous games between the pair have often ended as relatively low-scoring affairs, with the aforementioned last six matches producing a total of six goals.
And while this may come as a surprise to punters – given the attacking talent on display from both teams – it means that the sensible money is likely to be on a relative lack of goals.
A 1-0 win for Argentina can be backed at 27/4, with a successful £10 bet returning £77.50, while betting on the match finishing 1-1 returns £72.50 for the same stake.
Betting outright on the game to finish in a stalemate at 3/1 may also be a popular pick, especially when you consider that Argentina have finished their last three matches all square against Ecuador, Costa Rica and the USA.
Gerardo Martino’s side, on the other hand, come into the game on the back of three wins and two losses, including a 7-0 demolition of football minnows Hong Kong.
Although the visitors haven’t played since March, they will be buoyed by the fact that Argentina will name a side only featuring players who play in their domestic league, which could dramatically reduce their potency.
International football betting fans expecting a draw could also be tempted to bet on the game seeing an even number of goals, with bwin offering odds of 17/20 on this eventualilty.
Alternatively, punters confident that one of the teams will get a result could bet on an odd number of goals being scored at 91/100.
