[wptb id="391213" not found ]

A Crucial Battle for World Cup Hopes

Key Stats
– Paraguay have dominated historical meetings with 38 wins out of 71 clashes.
– Both teams are winless in their current World Cup qualifying campaigns.
– Paraguay haven’t scored in any of their opening three matches.

Paraguay and Bolivia are gearing up for a crucial encounter in their pursuit for a coveted spot in the 2026 World Cup. Both nations have experienced a turbulent start to their campaigns, making the upcoming match even more vital.

Current Form

Both teams are desperately seeking their first victory of this qualifying campaign. Paraguay, having earned a solitary point from their initial three fixtures, haven’t had the most inspiring of starts. Their struggles in front of goal have been evident, as they’ve yet to net in any of their opening games. To make matters worse, they’ve also suffered two consecutive 1-0 defeats at the hands of Venezuela and Argentina.

Bolivia, on the other hand, have seen their morale dampened after three consecutive losses. Their recent defeat to Ecuador, courtesy of a late goal by Kevin Rodriguez, was particularly heartbreaking. This loss, following on from sizeable defeats to football giants Brazil and Argentina, only piles on the pressure for the upcoming fixture.

Historical Background

When we delve into the history books, these two nations have clashed on 71 occasions since 1926. Paraguay have had the upper hand, registering 38 victories, whereas Bolivia managed 16, and the remaining 17 fixtures ended in a stalemate.

Team News and Expected Line-Ups

Paraguay are set to miss the influential Brighton & Hove Albion forward, Julio Enciso, due to a severe knee injury. However, they might see the return of Torino striker Antonio Sanabria, potentially displacing Adam Bareiro from the starting XI.

Bolivia could make some changes following their recent defeat. Rodrigo Ramallo’s impactful performance might earn him a place in the starting line-up, alongside Gabriel Villamil, aiming to infuse creativity into Bolivia’s midfield.

Predicted Line-ups:

Paraguay: Carlos; Balbuena, Gomez, Alonso; Ramirez, Campuzano, Sanchez, Acosta; Almiron, Sanabria, Sosa Bolivia: Viscarra; Medina, Roca, Haquin, Sagredo; Ramallo, Villamil, Justiniano, Arrascaita; Abrego, Moreno
