Brazil take on Paraguay in a 2015 Copa America quarter-final in Concepcion, Chile on Saturday June 27th and it's the perfect opportunity to make the most of the football betting offers at bet365.
By the time this final quarter-final gets underway, both sides will know whether they will face Argentina or Columbia in the semis. Nearly every neutral will want to witness a heavyweight clash between Brazil and Argentina, but Paraguay will hope to upset the odds and progress into the last four.
Like many of the other pre-tournament favourites, Brazil have stuttered into the 2015 Copa America knockout stages. However, a loss to Columbia - sandwiched between wins over Peru and Venezuela - was not enough to stop Dunga’s side from topping Group C, although their cause was not helped by the suspension of Neymar for the rest of the tournament.
Paraguay will be under no illusions that facing a sub-par Brazil is still a dangerous prospect - as they look to sew up a semi-final spot. However, they can take confidence from their Group B showing.
Paraguay remain unbeaten in their three 2015 Copa America games so far. They fought back from 0-2 down against Argentina in their first game, before beating Jamaica and then drawing with Uruguay in their final group game - as they beat the defending champions into second spot in Group B, behind Argentina.
Both sides will desperately want to win this 2015 Copa America quarter-final to progress into the final four and keep their chances of Copa America glory alive, so it's likely to be a fantastic watch on Premier Sports at 10:30pm on Saturday June 27.
Plenty of football fans will be having a bet to enhance their enjoyment of the action, with both casual punters and professional gamblers able to get more from their betting by using some of the football offers on bet365.
Bore Draw Money Back
Brazil scored four in the group stages - and conceded in each of their three games -. while Paraguay have notched five goals and conceded three so far. Therefore, it would appear as though neither side know much about keeping a clean sheet.
Most viewers will be hoping for an entertaining game with goals a plenty but, if the game does end 0-0, punters staking on the Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast markets for Brazil v Paraguay with bet365 will at least have their bets protected by a refund of losing stakes thanks to the firm's bore-draw promotion.
Each-Way First Goalscorers
With Neymar’s suspension, new Liverpool signing Roberto Firmino will be the go-to selection for Brazil backers - after netting the all-important second goal in their 2-1 win over Venezuela last time out. He will surely be out to prove his £29m transfer fee, so he rates as a worthy favourite in the First Goalscorer market.
Then there's his new club teammate Phillipe Coutinho for the Paraguay defence to contend with, not to mention Willian, Douglas Costa and defender Thiago Silva, who opened the scoring against Venezuela and will be hungry for more.
Captain Roque Santa Cruz will surely be a popular Paraguay candidate in the First Goalscorer markets - as the former Bayern Munich, Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City striker has 32 International goals from 106 appearances.
Should Santa Cruz fail to break his 2015 Copa America duck, Paraguay will surely look to the likes of Edgar Benitez, Nelson Haedo Valdez or Richard Ortiz to find the net on the International stage once again.
A great feature at bet365 is the ability to back each-way first goalscorers - settled on all goalscorers at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes play. It means that you can have an each-way First Goalscorer bet on Brazil v Paraguay and be safe in the knowledge that bet365 will pay out if your player scores anytime during the game.
There is another safety net offered by bet365, with the option to Cash Out your bet in-play if the game looks to be going against your bet or you just want to be sure of a profit.
With this feature, you can Cash Out a bet in its entirety or you can partially Cash Out your bet and leave the remainder of your stake to run.
If you're heading for a winning bet but the other team is threatening to score, you can cut and run with the returns that bet365 offer at that time by clicking on the Cash Out button located below your selection(s).
