Chile have the opportunity to secure the top spot on Thursday when they face Paraguay. A win would take them top of Group A, however, that lead at the top could only be for a couple of days with Argentina playing their final game on Tuesday against the bottom of the table Bolivia.
Equally, a win for Paraguay would certainly boost their hopes of topping the table. Eduardo Berizzo’s men still have two games to play and a win on Thursday against Chile would immediately take them above their opposition with their final game against Uruguay to come next week.
Neither side come into this game on the back of a win with Chile being held to a draw against Uruguay thanks to a Luis Suarez equaliser. Paraguay will not be disheartened by their last outing with their defeat coming at the hands of Argentina who currently sit pretty at the top of Group A having won two and drawn one.

Chile vs Paraguay: Match Stats
In four of the five games in which these sides have played in this year’s Copa America, only one game has finished with over 2.5 goals. The one game which broke the trend of under 2.5 goals was Paraguay’s opening game victory against the bottom of the group Bolivia. Despite falling behind after 10 minutes, Paraguay were able to fight back against a 10-man Bolivia to seal a 3-1 win.
Eduardo Vargas has had a cracking start to this summer’s Copa America. The 31-year-old has found the back of the net twice in Chile’s opening three games. The only game he did not score in was their 1-0 victory over Bolivia and even still he was able to provide the assist for the only goal of the game.
