South Africa vs Paraguay
International Friendlies
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium (Durban).

South Africa are going to take on Paraguay in the friendly match which is going to take place in Durban on Tuesday evening.

Home side is enjoying a very good run as they haven’t lost in the last six matches. However, in the last four occasions they’ve been involved in three draws, but Stuart Baxter’s side was able to keep the clean sheet four times in the last five matches. Although the hosts haven’t lost in the African cup of Nations qualifiers, they need to remain undefeated in Libya in the latest round in order to book their place for the final tournament. South Africa want to keep up their good run in this one as well.

On the other hand, Paraguay cannot be proud of their recent performances as they’ve lost four times in the last five occasions. They missed an excellent chance to book the ticket to Russia this summer as the visitors lost to Venezuela in the latest round of the qualifiers, which was the weakest side in the campaign. Juan Patino and the lads need to tighten up their defence urgently as they’ve conceded four goals only against japan in their latest test match.

South Africa vs Paraguay: Head-to-head

The first head to head clash between these two sides took place back in 2002 at World Cup and they split the points in a 2-2 draw. In the following two matches, which were friendly ones, South Africa booked a win and snatches a draw. The crowd was able to enjoy efficient matches when these two teams face each other.

South Africa vs Paraguay: Prediction

The hosts are in much better momentum and they should be capable of putting another good display, especially since they are playing in front of their fans. Therefore, we are going to back South Africa’s win in this one.

Home side are very hard to crack lately, while Paraguay are struggling to find the back of the oppositions’ net lately. However, as their encounters have been a joy to watch, we are expecting to see at least three goals in this one.
