Competition: South American World Cup
Market: Brazil win
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Only looking to widen their spot at the top of the table this week, Brazil will make the trip to Asunción when they face off against Paraguay in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another rugged display when they made their return to qualifying duties last week, Paraguay have largely impressed many across South America during their campaign. Despite having to settle for a 0-0 stalemate against a struggling Uruguay on foreign soil, Los Guaraníes will still be feeling that they could have left with more to show for their efforts. Opening up the midweek round of fixtures just about hanging onto their spot in the top-four thanks to their goal difference, Head Coach Eduardo Berizzo has seen his side gain a real reputation for being a stalemate specialist. In fact, in their opening five qualifying contests, Paraguay have had to settle for a point on four occasions. Suffering that penalties heartbreak when they last faced off with Wednesday’s heavyweights back in 2019, Berizzo’s men appear to have another tough task.
As for the visitors, extending their buffer at the top of the table to four points and appearing to cruise their way to qualification, the mood in Brazil’s camp should be at a real high. Putting on quite the show when they returned to action last week, the former world champions landed what was a routine 2-0 victory against Ecuador on home soil. Wrapped up thanks to goals from Neymar and Richarlison, Tite was rightfully filled with praise after his side’s dominant display in Porto Alegre. In fact, winning each of their opening five qualifying contests, Brazil have also recorded a clean sheet in four of those appearances. Really bouncing back from that blip when bringing an end to 2019, we’re backing a high-flying Seleção to extend on their purple patch this week.
