Venezuela have already booked their place in the Copa America quarter final but Paraguay still have work to do having drawn their opening couple of fixtures and they therefore have an extra incentive as the pair lock horns in Salta in their final Group B outing.
Noting as much, bookies have installed Gerardo Martino’s charges as favourites, Stan James pricing them at 4/6 to book their place in the last eight with a victory in Salta and it’s hard to argue with that given La Albirroja’s 2-2 draw against Brazil and that the fact that they have yet to guarantee progression.
Venezuela’s two matches have produced just one goal and a tally of fewer than 2.5 goals looks a safe bet at 4/6 () but it’s worth pushing the boat out a touch in the circumstances by tying that outcome in with a Paraguay victory, a combination available at 2/1 with bet365.
Alternatively, Totesport rate Martino’s troops at 7/5 to prevail ‘to nil’.
Paraguay to win and under 2.5 goals in the game – 2/1 (bet365)
