Paraguay hopes to extend their unbeaten run in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers to four matches this week. The side will be playing host to side Bolivia on Tuesday with kickoff at 2 pm.
Bolivia head into the fixture at the Estadio del Chaco on the back of three successive defeats in the competition. The side joins Venezuela as the only nations in the competition without a point in the rankings.
Paraguay is extra motivated in their bid to qualify for World Cup 2022 after two unsuccessful bids. The side started by collecting five points in their last three matches, leaving the Los Guaranies in the fifth position during the early stages. Furthermore, the side remains one of the three teams without a defeat so far in the qualifiers.
The side will also take more motivation following their 1-1 draw to Argentina last week. The side shared spoils after conceding before the half time break. A Lionel Messi converted on the spot was equalized by Eduardo Berizzo’s strike.
Paraguay have currently avoided losses in their last half dozen matches in all competitions. Most people back them to extend their unbeaten streak against an out of form Bolivia side this Tuesday.
On the other hand, La Verde lost 11 of their most recent 12 matches across all competitions, a run that started back in March 2019. Their last win over one and a half years came through their win against Haiti.
