The 2018 football World Cup in Russia was a roaring success for the UK. Although…
Argentina V Paraguay
Wednesday 1st July. 12:30AM. Streamed Live On Bet365
Just two matches remain in what has been an exceptionally exciting Copa America 2015 and the second semi-final sees tournament favourites Argentina face Paraguay to see who will meet host nation Chile in the final.
The two teams couldn’t be separated when they met back in the group stage and both will be desperate to edge proceedings in Concepcion.
It should be a thrilling battle.
Copa America So Far
We started out with 12 teams and after an incredibly entertaining group phase, which included a 5-0 rout for the hosts as well as the beautiful and ugly sides of Neymar, we were left with just eight. Every knockout game since has been tightly contested and, with just 180 minutes of football left, the three remaining sides must all fancy their chances.
The quarter-finals saw Argentina sneak through against Colombia on penalties, with Carlos Tevez putting his demons of the last Copa to bed by netting the decisive penalty. Meanwhile, Paraguay stunned Brazil by claiming a 4-3 shootout win following a 1-1 draw in the same stadium as this semi-final.
Meanwhile, Peru and Chile both won their respective last eight matches before an Eduardo Vargas double booked the hosts’ place in the blockbuster final. The tournament’s top scoring team would prefer to play Paraguay but will be quietly confident no matter what happens in this second semi-final.
It has been a great tournament thus far, expect a fitting climax.

Argentina V Paraguay: Copa America Semi-Final Preview
Gerardo Martino’s Albiceleste were pegged back by a spirited Paraguay on matchday one and the Argentina boss will demand that his players show more concentration during this semi-final showdown. However, they shouldn’t expect an easy ride against a spirited Los Guaranies.
Ramon Diaz’s men bounced back from two goals down to seal a point when these sides met in Group B and the Paraguayans have only grown in confidence since. The team doesn’t have any real stars but Lucas Barrios is finding the target whilst the likes of Paulo Da Silva and Pablo Aguilar have formed a steady guard at the back.
However, those player know they’ll be tested by Lionel Messi and co here. Argentina will be utterly determined to reach a second major tournament final in two years and even more desperate to make amends for their World Cup final loss to Germany just 12 months ago.
Argentina haven’t really hit top gear, then they should move within one match of equalling Uruguay’s record 15 Copa titles. Nonetheless, with Paraguay playing so well, it should be an immense battle.

Argentina V Paraguay Betting Tips
Unsurprisingly, Argentina are heavy favourites to reach the final and are priced 4/9 to win the game in 90 minutes with Bet365. Meanwhile, Paraguay are available at 17/2 and the draw can be backed at 17/5.
As impressive as Paraguay have been, we just can’t see Argentina making the same mistakes they did in the group stage meeting and think the Albiceleste will find their best form just when it matters most.
Martino will demand high energy from his team and we think that, assuming they open the scoring, there will be no way back for the underdogs in this second Copa battle.

Another bet that stands out as good value is Paraguay -1 on the card handicap. If the underdogs do fall behind then they could find themselves chasing. When taking the speed of Argentina’s attack into account, it could quite easily result in multiple bookings.
At odds of evens, we think this is a very solid bet.
