Colombia vs Paraguay Match Preview
Colombia have played two and won two so far beginning with a 2-0 over Colombia before a 1-0 defeat of Qatar. This means they are guaranteed to progress as group winners no matter what the results are on the final day.
Los Cafeteros have looked strong at the back with both of their victories seeing them keep a clean sheet. Daniel Zapata has two goals from his two appearances in this tournament while all three they have netted have come in the final 20 minutes.
Paraguay hold the advantage in the second spot with two points from two games while Qatar and Argentina have one point. They could qualify as a third-placed side but to guarantee a route in the last eight they would like to finish second which might victory as Argentina will be expected to beat Qatar on the last day.
Los Guaranies have drawn both their matches starting out with a disappointing 2-2 draw with Qatar before a 1-1 with Argentina. Two of their three goals have come in the opening-half and all three have come in the opening hour.
The prices are close and this might be more reflective on the fact that Paraguay need to win this fixture while Colombia do not. That being said the group leaders have shown over two games how strong they are and as such we think they look the value call.
It could be come clear that Paraguay need to score and as such this might lead to an open game and with Los Cafeteros having done their damage late on in fixture so far backing over 1.5 goals in the second 45 minutes looks the play.
