Paraguay have a five-match unbeaten streak in qualifying

Guillermo Skelotto’s team is in 9th place in the South American qualifying for World Cup 2022 with 13 points. The Guaraní have 2 wins, 7 draws and 5 defeats in 14 meetings.

The Paraguayan side are still among the contenders for the trip to Qatar, but the Red and Whites are not favourites to win the top five. “The Guaraní are poorly placed in qualifying, with Paraguay winless in their last five fixtures.

Even a new head coach cannot help matters. After a 0-4 away defeat to Bolivia in October 2021, Eduardo Berizzo quit. With Guillermo Scelotto replacing him, the situation has not improved. Paraguay lost narrowly to Chile (0-1) and then narrowly missed out on an away draw with Colombia (0-0).

Uruguay have changed coaches. Tabares has been sent off

Diego Alonso’s side are 7th in the table for World Cup 2022 qualification in South America with 16 points. The Charrúas have 4 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats in 14 rounds.

Uruguay are still outside the top 5, and that could leave the Blue and Sky at risk of missing out on the World Cup for the first time since 2006. The Charrúa are not yet in a hopeless situation, but their recent results have been poor. The Uruguayans have suffered four defeats in a row, before losing their last game away to Bolivia (0-3) by a heavy margin.

These results led to the sacking of head coach Oscar Tabares in December 2021, after 15 years’ service. His successor was Diego Alonso, 46, who had previously worked with Mexico’s Pachuca and Monterrey and MLS club Inter Miami.

Charrúa have not lost to Paraguay since 2007

The Uruguayans have not lost to the Guaraní in a long time, their unbeaten streak now stretches to nine meetings in a row. Paraguay’s last win came in October 2007, at home to the Red and White, who have since drawn 4 times and lost 5 times.

Last year, the rivals played 2 meetings in the early summer. On 6 June, the teams scored a goalless draw in Montevideo, Uruguay (0-0), and on 29 June, the Sky Blue defeated the Paraguayan side in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1-0) in the group stage of the America’s Cup. It was Edinson Cavani who sealed the win for the Uruguayan side on penalties.

CSKA newcomer Medina could miss the match due to injury

The Paraguayan coaching staff did not call on midfielder Andrés Cubas, who was suspended in last week’s match against Colombia. In addition, CSKA Moscow rookie Jesus Medina is unlikely to be named in the starting line-up. The midfielder has been sitting out the Army Men because of health problems and is unlikely to go to Asunción.

The Uruguayan side have made a near-optimal squad. The only missing leader from the national team is goalkeeper Fernando Muslera who has not played since December 2021 because of an injury.

Prediction and bet: Total less than 2

The opponents have roughly equal chances of victory. The Paraguayans, despite their results crisis, only suffered a 0-1 defeat at home to Chile in their last 4 games, while the Charrúas, who have a more solid squad, were restricted to a 0-0 draw with the Peruvians in their last 4 away games.

In their 2 games in 2021, the opponents were weak on attack, scoring a combined total of just 1 goal from the 11-metre mark. There was no sign of a turnaround. The Paraguayans had failed to score in their previous five qualifying matches, and they share last place in the qualifying table with Venezuela (9). The Uruguayan star attack is also unproductive, with just 14 goals in 14 games and just one goal against Brazil (1-4) in their last five encounters.
