Argentina vs Paraguay Predictions


Argentina picked up a confidence building win against Uruguay and can go on with the job against Paraguay. Paraguay were lucky in their opening match at Copa America but are unlikely to get any favours from Lionel Messi and his teammates.

  • Argentina are undefeated in their last 15 matches (all competitions).
  • Argentina have won 4 of their last 6 matches (Copa America).
  • Paraguay failed to score in 2 of their last 3 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Argentina have a 26-3 advantage against Paraguay with 16 draws in 45 matches.

Argentina Form


Argentina are undefeated in their last 15 matches. 

La Albiceleste drew both World Cup qualifiers in 2021, a 1-1 draw against Chile followed by a 2-2 draw in Colombia where they led 2-0 after 8 minutes.

Lionel Scaloni’s side drew 1-1 against Chile in their opening match at Copa America. Lionel Messi put them ahead with a free kick but they couldn’t hold on.

Argentina beat Uruguay 1-0 in their second game with Guido Rodríguez scoring the winner in the 13th minute. They kept Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani quiet with Uruguay registering just four shots and one on target.
