Costa Rica vs Paraguay: Betting Analysis

One of the underdogs in this year’s competition was Costa Rica. But in their final group game, they lost 3-0 to Colombia, and in their opening match of the campaign, they held Brazil to a scoreless draw.

Since they are eliminated from the 2024 Copa America, a victory over Paraguay would simply strengthen their head-to-head record. In contrast, Paraguay’s next game against Costa Rica will be difficult to win. They have a dismal track record when playing for a team that also had a dismal beginning to the campaign.

After losing their first two games, La Albirrojat was eliminated from the competition. In four of their previous five matches against Paraguay, the South American can have scored exactly one goal in each of their last three fixtures.
