Preview: Paraguay vs. Argentina – prediction, team news, lineups
Link here :
Argentina will endeavour to maintain their perfect start to World Cup 2022 Qualifying when they travel to the Estadio Defensores del Chaco to take on Paraguay in Thursday’s clash.
Eduardo Berizzo’s men marched to a 2-1 win over Venezuela in their most recent clash, while Argentina eased to a 3-0 win over Bolivia following the Brazil quarantine debacle.
MATCH PREVIEW :
Paraguay are hoping that third time is the charm when it comes to World Cup qualification, with this week’s hosts failing to qualify for the 2014 or 2018 editions after getting as far as the quarter-finals in South Africa 2010.
Argentina did claim a narrow 1-0 win over Paraguay in their triumphant Copa America run, but that success represents their only one in five previous encounters with this week’s hosts, and they have failed to score more than one a game during that frustrating streak.
