Paraguay vs Qatar Match Preview
Paraguay meet Qatar for their Matchday 1 Copa America clash on Sunday looking for important points in tough Group B also shared with Argentina and Colombia, hoping to outclass the tournament guests and show off at Estadio Jornalista Mário Filho.
Los Guaraníes have only ended a seven-match winless streak with a 2-0 win over Guatemala, though, and they have a lot to prove here. They’ve struggled to keep it together at the back and this has proven costly on many occasions, which will be a worry for Eduardo Berizzo and his men.
Qatar will obviously have a lot less on their minds and it feels they will not be under the same sort of pressure to perform. They’ve seen a 2-0 loss to Brazil earlier this month and failed to build on a streak of seven consecutive wins seen January through February, as Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus both found the net early on.
Maroons have been very tough to beat beforehand and we’ll now surely see them wanting to show that sort of a character in Brazil too, which does promise a tough challenge on the day as well. We expect them in a good mood going forward and we hope to see them score goals.
With that in mind, we’re now sticking our necks out for Qatar to hold off the rivals and snatch at least a point here, where a Double Chance – Draw or Qatar to win comes at 13/10 with bet365 and looks like great value.
We do feel we’re in for goals and we’ll thus also back such a claim, as we go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 11/8 with William Hill. We’ve seen Paraguay regularly scoring and conceding goals and this should prove another such occasion in the making, despite higher stakes than they’ve been used to lately.
