Paraguay vs Bolivia
FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifier
Date: Tuesday, 18 November 2020
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Defensores del Chaco.
La Verde have been the worst team in the confederation for the past several years. They are ranked 79th in the world, and also have been unsuccessfully trying to represent the continent in the world cup for the past several editions.
As of now they are placed dead last in the table with a 100% losing record, and in the process they have also conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition.
They had also crashed out of the 2019 Copa America in the Group Stage itself, and that too with a 100% losing record.
Going on, they also have a terrible record on the road over the course of the past year, and they have a terribly inferior h2h record against this opponent.
The White and Red, who are unbeaten so far in the tournament, will find this match-up a great opportunity to climb up the table – especially since the team placed just above them (Uruguay) are pitted against Brazil this match-day.
Likely, count on Paraguay to have the edge this Tuesday.
Paraguay vs Bolivia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eduardo Berizzo’s men had recorded 18 of the former 24 overall wins.
- They had scored a total of six goals from the preceding three fixtures.
- They had kept clean sheets in four of the last seven encounters.
- Not once have they lost a game at home against this rival. As of now, they are on a 20-game unbeaten run at home.
- Since 2005, Alvaro Pena’s men have scored a total of one goal on the road.
Paraguay vs Bolivia: Prediction
The White and Red held Argentina to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road. Meanwhile, La Verde lost 2-3 at home against Ecuador.
Going on, Berizzo’s men are on a six-fixture unbeaten run, and they had also remained so in 12 of their preceding 15 fixtures. And importantly, at home, they have not lost in over the past three years.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost 11 of their preceding 12 match-ups, and remained winless on the road in 30 of the former 32 attempts. In fact, 25 of these were losses as well.
In addition, they also have a terrible h2h record against this rival. They have not won once away from home since 1946, and have scored a grand total of one goal in such games in the past 15-year period.
As such, expect Paraguay to dominate proceedings from the get-go at the Estadio Defensores del Chaco.
