Chile vs Paraguay Copa América LIVE Football Score 25 June 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Chile is going head to head with Paraguay starting on 25 Jun 2021 at 00:00 UTC at Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha stadium, Brasilia city, Brazil. The match is a part of the Copa America, Group A.
Chile will look to confirm their place in the Copa America quarter-finals on Friday, when they take on Paraguay in their final game of the group stage. Martin Lasarte’s men currently sit second in the group, having collected five points from three games, while their opponents occupy third spot with three points from their two matches so far.
Chile come into this game hoping to finish a strong group campaign on a high, having collected five points from their opening three games. They started with a commendable point in a tough opening game against a heavily-fancied Argentina side, having fallen behind to an eye-catching free kick from Lionel Messi.
Martin Lasarte’s won a penalty on the hour mark, and Emiliano Martinez saved Arturo Vidal’s effort from the spot, but the keeper was powerless to prevent Eduardo Vargas pouncing on the rebound to fire in and draw his side level, with the game finishing 1-1.
They then went on to defeat Bolivia 1-0 in the following game, as Ben Brereton netted the only goal of the match in the 10th minute. Most recently, La Roja earned another valuable point, drawing 1-1 with a strong Uruguay outfit, as Luis Suarez equalised on the hour mark for their opponents after Vargas fired his side into the lead in the first half.
Having navigated their way through clashes with the two most formidable sides in their group, accumulating five points along the way, Lasarte’s men have all but confirmed their deserved progression from the group. They will now look to finish the group in a positive manner to achieve as high of a finish as possible, as La Roja look to gain a favourable quarter-final draw.
Their opponents also find themselves in a strong position to qualify, but definitely still have more to do if they are to book their spot in the final eight. Paraguay kicked off their group stage campaign with a victory, as they took on Bolivia in Goiania.
Despite La Albirroja dominating throughout, it was their opponents who took an early lead through an Erwin Saavedra penalty, and it took until past the hour mark for Paraguay to finally take their chances, as Alejandro Romero equalised and Angel Romero immediately put them ahead before he netted his second of the game 15 minutes later to seal a 3-1 victory.
However, they suffered a defeat last time out in their second group game, as an early Alejandro Gomez goal fired Argentina to a narrow 1-0 win on Monday. While that is by no means a devastating result against one of the pre-tournament favourites, in a short group format they will hope to quickly return to winning ways, with one win from their final two likely enough to seal their quarter-final spot.
Correct score 1-1
This is our adventurous wager for this match-up. At the odds of 5/1, this would be a big hit, but it is also immensely risky, so only bet with a small fraction of your portfolio. The reasoning behind this correct score pick is that an unordinary amount of Chile’s matches finish with this score. In fact, 4 of Chile’s last 5 games have been 1-1 draws.
