The 2019 Copa America continues on Thursday night and we have looked over the fixtures to pick out our favourite bet from South America’s premier international football tournament.

Today’s Best Copa America Bet: Thursday, June 27


Leigh Copson: Back Brazil to beat Paraguay 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 @ EVS Paddy Power

Brazil’s response to being booed by supporters during the group stage of the Copa America was an emphatic one. They heard jeers from the fans during the 3-0 win over Bolivia and heard them again as a lacklustre second outing forced them to settle for a goalless draw with Venezuela, but they got their act together for the final group match to advance in style. The Brazilians stormed to a 5-0 victory over Peru to book their place in the quarter-finals and they will now look to produce another dominant display in order to progress to the semi-finals on Thursday night.

Providing the opposition will be a Paraguay side who made it through to the last eight despite failing to win a single group match. They opened up with back-to-back draws against Qatar and Argentina before falling to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Colombia, but their minus-one goal difference was better than Japan’s minus-four and that meant the Paraguayans snatched one of the two qualifying spots awarded to the teams that finished third in their group. So after limping through the group stage, can we really expect Eduardo Berizzo’s side to now end Brazil’s quest for glory on home soil?

Of course not. Brazil have hardly been firing on cylinders since the Copa America got underway, but they produced a much-improved performance as they hammered Peru last time out and you have to believe that they will build on that with another solid showing here. For me it is not about will Brazil win, more how will they win? Paraguay have been turned over a couple of times in the past couple of years, but they have rarely lost by more than three goals and Brazil have shut out each of their last five opponents. That makes backing Brazil to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 a solid bet for this quarter-final tie.
