Colombia Prediction- Can Colombia maintain 100% record?

Colombia sit top of Group B with the maximum haul of 6 points thanks to a 100% winning record which has started their Copa America campaign off in style.

An impressive opening group 2-0 win over Argentina was followed up with a 1-0 win against Qatar which has placed Colombia in an unassailable position at the top of the group.

Indeed, due to the average results gained by the other three nations in the group, Paraguay, Qatar and Argentina respectively, Colombia have already qualified for the quarter-finals.

Nevertheless, Colombia will be keen to keep their momentum going against Paraguay on Sunday afternoon at the Arena Fonte Nova in preparation for the last eight.

Colombia bring a 4-match winning streak into this encounter having earlier also recorded victories against Panama and Peru, both in 3-0 wins prior to this tournament.

In fact, Colombia have won 7 of their last 8 matches in all competitions and they look well placed to at least avoid defeat in this encounter against Paraguay.

Paraguay Prediction – Can Paraguay nick 2nd spot in Group B?

Paraguay extended their unbeaten run to 4 matches in all competitions when they earned a point in a 1-1 draw with Argentina last time out in the Copa America.

This solid result followed earlier draws with Honduras and Qatar, along with a 2-0 win over Guatemala, so they too will be confident they can get a result here.

However, the fact remains that Paraguay have actually recorded just 1 win out of their last 10 matches overall, so all three points in this encounter against in-form Colombia looks unlikely.

In addition, Paraguay are without an away win from their last 6 matches on their travels, a sequence that includes 4 defeats and 2 draws.

Losses to USA, Japan, Peru and Mexico along with draws against South Africa and Argentina make them unfavoured to grab all three points in this one.

2 away wins out of their last 13 matches on the road also adds weight to them not emerging triumphant here, although they did beat Colombia in their last meeting.

A World Cup qualifier win ended a sequence of 5 previous defeats on the trot to Colombia and they’ll be hoping they can repeat this result in this clash.


Key-Facts – Colombia v Paraguay

  • Colombia have won 7 of their last 8 matches in all competitions
  • Colombia bring a 4-match winning streak into this encounter
  • Paraguay have won just 2 of their last 13 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

Colombia’s momentum should see them over the line against Paraguay but the possible resting of players makes the handicap option a safer play here.
