The team led by Argentine coach Daniel Garnero is not having a good time in the Paraguayan team. Previously, on the fifth round of the Qualifiers, the Guaraníes tied without goals against Chile, and have only won one game in these qualifiers, against Bolivia in Asunción.
However, when Colombia and Paraguay have faced each other in Guaraní territory, the favorability has gone to the coffee team, who has never lost in the Defensores del Chaco.
Paraguay’s streak has not been good in every way. After being a tough team in the 90s and 2000s, it is now experiencing a dark present in which it has not been able to qualify for the World Cup since South Africa 2010. Now this team has a squad divided between youth and experience.
In Paraguay’s last match in the Qualifiers, they tied a poor 0-0 match against Chile in Santiago. And for the next match against Colombia, Garnero’s team will have two significant losses to face Néstor Lorenzo’s team.
Miguel Almirón: Paraguay’s star player will not be against Colombia due to a muscle injury he suffered with his Newcastle team in the last Premier League match against Bournemouth.
Robert Rojas: The defender in the last game against Chile saw the red card in the second half, which caused his absence for the game against Colombia this Tuesday.
Now Paraguay will have to face this match against the tricolor with these recently mentioned losses with the aim of adding points, since it has only added four points (1 victory against Bolivia and 1 draw against Peru) and has not lost so far in the stadium Defenders of the Chaco.
