Argentina to Win

With Paraguay sitting in the sixth spot in the WC Qualifiers table while Argentina is without a loss and second in the standings, it’s clear who the favourite is in this game. And while Argentina only beat Paraguay once in their last five meetings, our prediction is for the reigning South American champions to win this game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

All five most recent h2h duels between Paraguay and Argentina have gone under 2.5 total goals, so there’s no reason to expect a different outcome in this game. In addition to this, Argentina averaged 2.63 goals per game in these Qualifiers, while Paraguay averaged 2.22 goals per game, which is pretty low for South American WC Qualifiers. With that in mind, our prediction is for this game to go under 2.5 total goals.

Lionel Messi to Score at Any Time

With five goals in the WC Qualifiers, Leo Messi is leading the list of top scorers for Argentina. The legendary winger has been in great form for his country lately and we expect this trend to continue against Paraguay. Since we don’t expect many goals, you can also try betting on Messi to score first if you are looking for better odds, although the odds on him to score at any time are good enough on their own.

Paraguay vs Argentina preview: Can Paraguay get something here?

The two teams enter this game in different moods due to their positions in the standings, but we should see a good game. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams:


The team that reached the quarter-finals of Copa America in which they were eliminated by Peru after penalties is now hoping to secure at least a spot in the inter-conference playoffs. To do so, Paraguay will have to get the fifth spot, from which they are currently two points away after the team collected eleven points from the first nine games. So, a good result against Argentina would certainly provide them with a confidence boost.


After finally winning a trophy with Argentina in the Copa America this summer, Leo Messi is still leading his national team to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.  At the moment, Argentina has five wins and three draws after they played eight games so far in the Qualifiers and they remain in the second place in the group, only behind Brazil. They are also the only team other than Brazil to still remain unbeaten in these Qualifiers.
