Brazil will take on Paraguay in the fourth and final quarter final of the 44th edition of Copa America at Estadio Municipal Alcaldesa Ester Roa Rebolledo on 27th June. Winner of this quarter-final will meet Argentina in the semi-final of 2015 Copa America.
A 2-1 victory over spirited Venezuela despite Neymar’s absence showed Brazil still have something without their star player. On the other Hand, Paraguay played a draw against the mighty Argentina and then held Uruguay and a win against minnow Jamaica in the group stage.
Brazil were pretty low in form after their 7-1 loss to Germany and a 3-0 to Netherlands in the FIFA World cup, but they have won all their matches, except against Columbia in the Group, since then.
Brazil will be looking to take a revenge when Paraguay knocked them out in Copa America 2011. The suspension of Neymar gave Willian a chance and he did quite better against Venezuela. Paraguay is still unbeaten in the tournament along with Argentina and Chile. They will try to take the match on penalties like last time where they won 2-0 when all four Brazilians missed the spot kick.
Brazil will be boasting on their defense and Paraguay will hope to deliver by their experienced forward Santa Cruz and Valdes. The winner will meet Argentina in the 2nd Semi-final and it is expected to be a Brazil vs Argentina clash.
