Stadium:Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico
The quarterfinals of Copa America will start with the match between Peru and Paraguay. Bookmakers have no favorite in this pairing, although the face-to-face encounter is noticeably on the side of the Peruvians. It is true that the current Peruvian hasn't performed well in the last encounters, however, the group tournament has shown that the Incas enjoy playing in Brazil and will do everything possible to make it to the semifinals.
Peru current form
The Peruvians finished the group phase in second place in Group B, beating not only Venezuela, which was eliminated, but also Ecuador and Colombia. It is not certain, however, that the Incas were happy with this outcome, because now the Peruvian team if it beats Paraguay, will most likely have to play the Brazilians in the semi-finals. After all, it is difficult to believe that the Pentacampiones will not beat the Chileans. The Peruvians have already played with the Brazilian team at the current Copa and lost 0-4. After that defeat, the Incas beat Colombia and Venezuela and played a 2-2 draw with Ecuador.
Paraguay current form
The Paraguayans finished third in Group A, taking six points from two games, losing to Uruguay and Argentina but beating Bolivia and Chile. In the fifth round of the group stage, the Paraguayans faced Uruguay, so to speak, fighting for second place in the group, which would allow the Guaranís the chance to face the Brazilians, not before the final. However, the Paraguayan team lost to Uruguay with a score of 0-1. The score was minimal, but in fact, Paraguay had almost no chance of success in that match. The Charrúas were stronger than their opponent in every way, Paraguayans shot only four times on target and not once they hit the bar.
Betting and prediction
It is unlikely that the Peruvian team will make it to the final part of the World Cup 2022, so the current Copa can be called an outlet for the Incas. The more so, with the last Copa Peru team, has pleasant memories, where two years ago the Incas played in the finals but lost the decisive match to Brazil at Maracana. Separately, let's pay attention to the statistics of the matches between Peru and Paraguay and the fact that the Guaraníes have recently become a suitable opponent for the Incas. In this match, we have the following odds: W1 for 3.075, TO 2.5 for 3.20, Both Teams To Score - No for 1.60.
