Quarter Final Fixture 3: Brazil x Paraguay (July 17, 2011)
Another big quarter final clash on the way. Interesting to see that out of the 4 best teams (arguable) in the tournament, two will be heading home after the quarters.
Brazil are the favorites, but probably not by that much. Paraguay has a decent team, nothing special, but its really hard to beat them.
Pato and Neymar will hope to continue their vein of form after grabbing a brace against the Ecuadorians.
For Paraguay, their gritty midfield could be an advantage over the seemingly lightweight Brazilian midfield. Haedo Valdez could YET AGAIN prove dangerous when coming off the bench.
My prediction: 1-1...Brazil wins in the penalties
