Competition: Copa America
Market: Argentina to win against Paraguay
Odds: 4/9 @ Ladbrokes
Favourites Argentina lock horns with the tournament surprise-package Paraguay in the semi-finals of this summer’s Copa America on Wednesday, with the Sky Blues tipped to progress, but Paraguay having pulled off an impressive scalp to make it to the final four.
The South American giants have stars such as Lionel Messi (Barcelona) and Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), who can always swing the game Argentina’s way at any time, which means Paraguay are never comfortable regardless of the scoreline. They have also beaten the likes of Colombia and Uruguay in the tournament, so they’re a force to be reckoned with.
Paraguay, however, aren’t slouches. They are unbeaten the Copa America, and progressed from the same group as Argentina, playing out a 2-2 draw when the two sides met. As a result, Wednesday’s game could be a tight affair. Both teams are in the semi-finals on merit, and pressure is all on Argentina ahead of the clash which could see them struggle with nerves.
Nevertheless, Ladbrokes are backing the Sky Blues with odds of 4/9 to come away with a win against Paraguay in normal time this week.
