Spain have only got better since their shock loss to the Swiss and they have won their last three games with plenty of possession and always looking dangerous.

Paraguay vs Spain match prediction

Paraguay have been good defensively although they have struggled to score in recent matches which makes their task a tough one up against Spain.

Spain have looked very impressive since their opening round loss to Switzerland where they created plenty of chances but failed to convert.

We like the look of Spain and believe they have more upside than their opponents and can get the verdict here by a goal or two.
