The Brazilians have deliberately slowed down
The Pentacampeans are confidently leading their World Cup qualification and have already guaranteed themselves a ticket to the final part. The only motivation now is to keep their lead, with second-placed Argentina trailing by four points. In the last round, the team were beaten by Ecuador 1-1 on the road. They’d like to finish this qualifier strongly, but victory at all costs is not in anyone’s interest; the main thing is to avoid injuries and show quality football.
Guarani have had a disastrous second round
Paraguay were early contenders to qualify from the group stage, but then they went on a six-match unbeaten run. During that period, the team failed to score once, and have scored just two points. In the last round, the Guaranís lost 0-1 at home to Uruguay, finally burying their World Cup dreams. Paraguay are now ninth in the group, six points behind the coveted top five – an almost impossible feat to overcome in three games.
In the first round match, the Brazilians managed an important away win of 2-0, with Neymar the hero of the battle, scoring a goal and an assist.
Both teams do not have much tournament motivation, the Brazilians are already in the World Cup and Paraguay almost lost their chances of getting there. The odds on the home team’s victory have dropped outright, although this has more to do with the Guaraní crisis. The Brazilians are not showing spectacular football in this qualifier, but we will take a chance on the home team with a -1.5 goal handicap.
