Paraguay has made 3 wins, 2 draws and 8 defeats. The team still have two of three remaining games at home, which means that it still have a chance to qualify. Coach, Victor Genes, has imported many new young players in the team. And, the goal keeper and former captain, Justo Villar, is out in what is a largely home based selection. Big names like: Lucas Barrios, Nelson Heado Valdez or Oscar Cardozo stand no chance in the squad.
Argentina, on the other hand, is about to qualify for Brazil 2014 if it only wins this time. The team traveled to Asuncion joint top of the section with Colombia. It made 7 wins, 5 draws and just 1 defeat in 13 matches. The team is not in its best from with only 3 draws in the last 3 games, but these three wins have been sufficient to make it to the top in its group. Players: Javier Mascherano, Gonzalo Higuain, Ezequiel Garay and Federico Fernandez will miss this game. Thus, everything will rest on the shoulders of the star Lionel Messi. Striker, Kun Aguero,is back in the team and this is good for Argentina.
