Colombia vs Paraguay 7 June 2016: Copa America Preview and Predictions

Colombia take on Paraguay in a game that should be amazing to watch. This should be an open, free flowing game between two South American powers and that is always an event in itself. Furthermore, this is an important game for both sides since the result will have huge implications on the outcome of the group.

Paraguay began their campaign with a draw and if they can beat Colombia they will know they are almost through. That being said, they are by far the weaker side and they know that. This game will require the likes of Santa Cruz and the other experienced players to stand up or it will be tough for Paraguay to get a result here.

Colombia on the other hand will be feeling good and the team is in really good form. Lead by Real Madrid superstar, James Rodriguez, and AC Milan striker, Carlos Bacca, this side is filled with excitement. I think we can expect a lot of goals from these players in this game and also a win.

Overall I am fairly confident that Colombia will win this game. I don’t rate Paraguay very highly while Colombia are one of the best teams in the world. That being said, we are getting a very short price on the Colombians to win. At less than 2.00 I don’t think it is worth the investment and as a result I think the goal line in the better option. The over 2.5 goals is a good bet since Colombia are filled with goals and I think they will manage to net 3 past Paraguay on their own. Paraguay might score as well since Ospana, as good as he is, often fails since the likes of Zapata are very error prone. This seems like a very safe bet so a big bet size is defendable.
