Argentina V Paraguay
Saturday 13th June. 10:30PM. Streamed Live On Bet365
The highlight of this weekend’s first round of Copa America fixtures sees tournament favourites Argentina begin their campaign with a potentially testing match against Paraguay in La Serena.
Gerardo Martino’s men will be fancied to go all the way in Chile but Paraguay are a team that regularly reach World Cup finals so this coule be a pretty explosive affair. With the likes of Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero in action, the neutrals will be hoping fireworks.

Argentina V Paraguay Preview
Group B rivals Argentina and Paraguay will both be expected to reach the knockout stages of this year’s 45th Copa but this opening clash carries huge importance as the two teams will be looking to secure a favourable route to the final. If recent meetings are anything to go by then we could be in for a classic.
The last three head-to-head encounters have all ended with goals. Argentina have netted 12 over that period whilst Ramon Diaz’s men scored five of their own. Those stats would suggest a high scoring game that ends in a comfortable win for the Albiceleste and that’s exactly what punters will be hoping for.
It’s hard to see Argentina struggling goals in this tournament as Messi and Aguero are supported by the likes of Carlos Tevez, Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore and Gonzalo Higuain. With the added incentive of wanting to bounce back from last summer’s World Cup final loss to Germany, opposing defences could be in for uphill battles when they come up against the formidable Albiceleste.
Argentina aren’t just quality in the final third, though, and their defence will be hard to penetrate. It could be particularly difficult for Paraguay, who left out former star Oscar Cardozo and will now be relying on the likes of Roque Santa Cruz and Nelson Haedo Valdez.
On their day Paraguay can cause problems. As far as this one’s concerned, though, it’s Argentina who hold all the aces.

Argentina V Paraguay Betting Tips
Argentina are firm favourites to win their opening clash and are priced just 3/10 with Bet365. Meanwhile, Paraguay can be backed at 9/1 whilst the draw is available at 9/2.
Paraguay aren’t the worst side in the world by any means but they can’t match the quality of Martino’s Albiceleste and we think that gulf in quality will show at the Estadio La Portada.
Argentina will have a real bee in their bonnet after failing at the final hurdle in Brazil last summer and that extra motivation could be exactly what they need to claim South America’s biggest prize for a joint record 15th time. Expect them to start their campaign in style.

The obvious reason to love Argentina is their formidable attacking unit. Football enthusiasts and punters alike will be hoping to see them hit the ground running against Paraguay, but there is one leading candidate that should taste success in Chile.
Magical Messi has already picked up three major trophies in 2015 and will be determined to fire his country to one too. If he does, the Ballon d’Or is his. If he hits his mercurial best then the 27-year-old should net a few goals, starting in this Group B opener.
