Argentina Prediction- Can Argentina bounce back?

Argentina suffered a setback in their opening match of their Copa America campaign when they lost 2-0 to Colombia in Group B.

This defeat has left the Group B favourites bottom of the pile with zero points to their name ahead of their clash with Paraguay on Wednesday night.

Anything other than a win for Argentina would leave the favourites in a precarious position in terms of qualifying for the quarter-finals.

Recent wins against Mexico (twice), Morocco and Nicaragua have been offset though by defeats to Brazil, Venezuela and most recently, Colombia.

The Argentinians are not in sparkling form at the moment, and even if they do win their margin of victory may not be as high as many expect.

This is effectively another away match for Argentina and they’ve managed to win by 2 goals or more in just 2 of their last 9 matches on their travels.

These convincing wins were achieved against Ecuador (3-1) and Iraq (4-0).

Argentina suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Paraguay in their last encounter back in 2016.

Paraguay Prediction – Can Qatar build on encouraging start?

Paraguay are more than likely to still be kicking themselves after blowing a 2-0 lead against Copa America invitees, Qatar, eventually drawing the match 2-2.

Still, a point is better than nothing and if they can take something from this match against the Group B favourites, Argentina, they’ll still be in the running for a top two finish.

Recent form overall has produced an average return for Paraguay as they’ve actually captured just 1 win out of their last 9 matches in all competitions.

That win came in the shape of a 2-0 win over Guatemala in a friendly prior to the start of their Copa America campaign, but they’ve now put together an unbeaten run of 3 matches.

Draws with Honduras and Qatar either side of the aforementioned win over Guatemala means that Paraguay will come into this clash with Argentina in reasonably confident mood.

However, results away from home have been ordinary to say the least as Paraguay have lost 4 of their last 5 away matches.

Defeats to USA, Japan, Peru and Mexico aren’t great preparation for this tournament, but Paraguay have lost by 2 goals or more in just 2 of their last 9 away matches.


Key-Facts – Argentina v Paraguay

  • Argentina have won by 2 goals or more in just 2 of their last 9 away matches
  • Paraguay have lost by 2 goals or more in just 2 of their last 9 away matches
  • Paraguay won the last encounter against Argentina 1-0


Betting Tips Verdict

Argentina haven’t been entirely convincing for quite a while and although they should beat Paraguay, they may well not beat the asian line here.
