Get our football experts’ best bets from the midweek action in CONMEBOL qualifiers in South America.
Let’s get right into our three picks on betPawa, where you can use our booking code B46588E to auto-fill your slip.
Brazil vs Paraguay
Brazil finally relinquished their 100% record in CONMEBOL qualifiers in an ill-tempered 1-1 draw with Ecuador last time out. The Seleção is still cruising, though, and can afford to experiment with different systems here with qualification long since sewn up. They now return home where they boast a perfect record of six wins from six. Key to their success here has been an almost watertight backline, with the Seleção conceding just once on home soil in this WCQ cycle. They’ve also won four of their six games by a 2+ goal margin. No side in this qualifying group has scored fewer than Paraguay’s two away goals, so the home side should claim a comfortable win.
💰 TIP: Brazil HT/FT
Argentina vs Colombia
Argentina has led to nil at halftime in three of their last four WCQ home games, with Inter Milan star Lautaro Martínez notching first-half strikes in the last WCQ H2H, and also in Friday’s win away to Chile. The Copa America champions are now unbeaten in 18 WCQs and that 2-1 win against Chile, despite a raft of absentees through Covid and injury, was a highly impressive result. The reverse fixture ended 2-2 and we are expecting goals again.
💰 TIP: Over 2.5 goals
Uruguay vs Venezuela
A Luis Suárez inspired 1-0 win over Paraguay last time out helped Uruguay snap their four-match losing streak in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying and moved La Celeste into the all-important inter-confederation playoffs spot. Thye must beat rock-bottom Venezuela here with tough clashes against Peru and Chile on the horizon, but they’ll be aware that the last two meetings between these sides ended 0-0. Uruguay has just 15 goals in this qualifying campaign, the third-lowest tally, so any win will do for Suárez and co.
💰 TIP: Uruguay win & under 3.5 goals
