Paraguay vs Brazil, Soccer Predictions and Betting Odds

Paraguay vs Brazil Predictions and betting tips for the matchup, a CONMEBOL Copa America Group D match, taking place this Friday, June 28, 2024.


The second round Group D in the Copa America kicks off this Friday with a crucial match between Paraguay and Brazil. The match is scheduled to start at 9:00 pm (ET) at Allegiant Stadium. Both Paraguay and Brazil need a victory, as they were unsuccessful in the first round. Check out the betting tips based on value odds for this game.

Brazil drew 0-0 with Costa Rica in their competition opener, a very disappointing performance from the Brazilian team. Brazil's squad includes big names such as Vini Jr, Rodrygo, Savinho, and Raphinha, players who are used to high-stakes matches, placing all the pressure on the Brazilian team for this game.

Paraguay, on the other hand, was defeated by Colombia 2-1 in their opening match, with the Paraguayan goal scored by Enciso.

Paraguay vs Brazil Prediction 

This match promises great excitement, mainly because the Brazilian team needs to score a goal at all costs, which will make the game very open, with chances for corners at every moment, stemming from saved shots, blocked shots, and crosses cleared by the defense.

The scenario for the game is significant pressure from Brazil, with many shots on goal and plays down the flanks by Raphinha and Vini Jr, creating numerous corner opportunities.

This is a decisive game for both teams, as mentioned, with Brazil having drawn their first game and Paraguay having lost to Colombia. Losing this match would make it very difficult for either team to advance to the next round, which would be a disaster for Brazil.

For these reasons, I expect an active game from the start, with great chances for the Brazilian team to score first. Paraguay, needing points, will also attack Brazil, creating spaces and goal-scoring opportunities, which consequently leads to corners.

Another factor to consider is the pitch, which is not up to FIFA standards and is smaller, making the game tighter on the flanks, resulting in more corners due to the ease of marking and clearing the ball. In my pricing, the line should be at 10.0, but since the bookmaker offers 9.5, we will invest. Our betting recommendation is for corners in this match, with a Total OVER 9.5 Corners Odds -110 (Bet365).
