Argentina welcome Paraguay to the Estadio Alberto Jose Armando for a FIFA World Cup Qualifier on Thursday. The visitors have been in decent away form but can they handle the threat of Lionel Messi and co?

Argentina Form

Argentina come into this match having won five of their last six matches in all competitions. They have won both their opening two World Cup Qualifiers as well.

After football returned globally Argentina drew with Chile before thrashing Mexico 4-0 at home. That was followed by an impressive 2-2 draw in Germany and a 6-1 hammering of Ecuador.

Another impressive result followed as Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 away before drawing against Uruguay.

Argentina’s World Cup Qualifying campaign kicked off with a 1-0 home victory over Ecuador. It was not the most comprehensive performance but a 13th minute Lionel Messi penalty saw them home.

In their last match Argentina won 2-1 in Bolivia. After falling behind Lautaro Martinez equalised before Carlos Correa ensured all three points went Argentina’s way with a winner 10 minutes from time.

Argentina Team News

Lionel Scaloni is likely to stick with a similar side that beat Bolivia last time out. Lionel Messi is available and should form a front three with Lucas Ocampos and Lautaro Martinez.

Despite calls for Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to become Argentina’s first choice, Franco Armani should retain his spot.

Argentina Squad

Goalkeepers: Franco Armani, Augustin Marchesin, Esteban Andrada, Emiliano Martínez.

Defenders: Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico, Walter Kannemann, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Gonzalo Montiel, Leonardo Balerdi, Lisandro Martínez, Facundo Medina, Nehuén Pérez.

Midfielders: Ángel Di María, Leandro Paredes, Giovani Lo Celso, Rodrigo De Paul, Roberto Pereyra, Guido Rodríguez, Nicolás Domínguez, Exequiel Palacios.

Forwards: Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez, Lucas Alario, Alejandro Gómez, Joaquín Correa, Lucas Ocampos, Nicolás González.

Paraguay Form

Paraguay reached the second round of the 2019 Copa America where they lost out on penalties to Brazil after a 0-0 draw. Since then Paruguay will be reasonably happy with their form.

They played six successive away matches after the South American showpiece event of which they won two, drew two and lost two.

Paraguay will be pleased with the start of their World Cup Qualifying campaign where they opened up with a 2-2 draw at home to Peru. Angel Romero scored both goals and has now hit the back of the net in five times in his last seven internationals.

In their last match Paraguay won 1-0 in Venezuela thanks to a 85th minute strike from Chicago Fire midfielder, Gaston Gimenez.

Paraguay Team News

Paraguay have a strong squad available with Miguel Almiron and Gaston Gimenez offering superb midfield and attacking options.

Up front, Angel Romero will offer plenty of threat after scoring two goals in a 2-2 draw against Peru in the opening World Cup Qualifier. 

Paraguay Squad

Goalkeepers: Antony Silva, Alfredo Aguilar, Miguel Martínez.

Defenders: Gustavo Gómez, Júnior Alonso, Fabián Balbuena, Blás Riveros, Santiago Arzamendia, Juan Escobar, Robert Rojas, Omar Alderete, Alberto Espínola.
