Colombia to beat Paraguay @ 1.95 (888Sport) – 2 points
Colombia started out their first match of the tournament beating the USA by a score of 2-0; which should easy their fears relatively of qualifying to the group. A victory here will seal qualification and if results go their way, it could seal their berth as the first placed team in this group. James Rodriquez really put on a strong performance in the last game, also netting the nail in the coffin penalty against USA in order to settle the tie. Carlos Bacca and Juan Cuadrado also have been dangerous while attacking. Bacca is waiting for an opportunity to put the ball in the back of the net and will rely a lot on Cuadrado, James and Cardona to provide him the service to get it win the back of the net.
Paraguay were extremely cagey in their last game being held to a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica. They will consider it a good result to not lose, but that was required in order for them to have a better chance of qualifying. Paraguay come into the game with just 1 win against struggling Bolivia in their last 7 games since October, and that will not bode well for them. They struggle offensively with Benitez, Lezcano and Iturbe up front, who have not found a goal in their last 2 games.
Colombia showed some good rhythm coming into the last encounter and will look to maintain that by winning tonight’s encounter against Paraguay.
