Spain Book Passage With Paraguay

WORLD CUP BETTING: Spain won the Iberian Derby against Portugal to progress to the quarter finals while Japan had to suffer penalty heartache in a slow encounter with Paraguay.

Spain defeated Chile 1-0 to book their place in the quarter finals of this year’s World Cup. Coral and Ladbrokes have both gone to 3/1 from 4/1 and 9/2 respectively.

Portugal lacked any creative spark, largely due to the anonymity of Cristiano Ronaldo, and it was up to Spain to break them down. Portugal defended well as a unit for the first 50 minutes and managed to highlight elements of Spain’s vulnerability at the back concerning crosses, as well as some nerves from Casillas. Spain’s class and patience shone through but Paraguay, Spain’s next opponents, will be very interested in the aerial weak points.

Paraguay progressed courtesy of a missed Japanese penalty after 120 minutes of 0-0 stalemate. Paraguay were not impressive and are now rank outsiders at 50/1 with Paddy Power. Spain are 8/15 at Betdaq to defeat Paraguay in the quarters and on the cagey showing against Japan, it will be backs to the walls for Paraguay. Expect similar of Paraguay to that of Portugal and a ticking clock to the 1st Spanish goal.

David Villa’s 4th goal of the tournament has seen him leap to 9/5 fav with Sportingbet for the top goalscorer award from 3/1. He overtakes Gonzo Higuain, who remains at about 11/4 (Coral). Luis Fabiano drifts slightly to 4/1 from 7/2 (William Hill).
