Chile takes on Paraguay in what should be a really interesting match between two of the stronger sides in South America. Chile has all but guaranteed their spot in the World Cup but Paraguay still has a ton to fight for. As a result of that, I am expecting a really good game.
Paraguay will be away from home and being on the road in this continent is a hard task. This team has enough talent but they are up against a great team in Chile. This team really needs the points but at the moment it seems like it will not be enough so I think we can expect this team to fail here at Chile.
Chile will be at home for this game and in South America, the home team has a big advantage. In addition to that, this is also a team that is full of talent. The likes of Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal are some of the best players in the world and they should be able to lead their team well. This side is well balanced and can really challenge in the World Cup in 12 months time so I think they should get an easy win in this game.
All in all, I am expecting the home side to win and betting on it is not the worst thing in the world. The odds are short but this should be a pretty safe bet since Chile are the better side and are playing at home. Furthermore, considering the two poor defenses, over 2.5 goals also seems like a good option for a bet.
