I BACKED Argentina to win Copa America and Chile eachway and it’s halfway there after the hosts knocked out Peru in the first semi-final.
Now it’s Argentina’s time but it’s no certainty they’ll take care of a side who stunned them in the group stage with a battling 2-2 draw from 2-0 down.
Paraguay then held Brazil in the last eight, as I predicted, before winning a penalty shootout so they have to be respected. In fact Paraguay have drawn 10 of their last 13 matches and another stalemate has a chance at 7-2 with Skybet.
The Paraguay game apart Argentina have won two matches 1-0 then beaten Uruguay on penalties after a 0-0 draw. The whole tournament they’ve created and missed chances and it wouldn’t be a surprise if that trend continued. In defence they’ve generally been solid and the only goals they’ve conceded in eight matches were thos two against Paraguay.
With the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Angel di Maria in their ranks you always expect goals from Argentina but Paraguay have shown they can score against the best and the bet I like most for this game is both to score at 13-10 with Coral.
Messi has only netted once – a penalty – in the tournament so could this be the night he improves that tally? He is 21-20 to do so and 10-3 at Coral to score first.
Both to score
