Paraguay vs Uruguay – News, lineups, form, and more
Both teams need the win to stay in the race for the World Cup, so this should be an interesting game. Let's check both teams out in more detail:
After 14 round in the WC Qualifiers, Paraguay is one of many teams still looking for their spot. However, they are in the worst position of them all since they have 13 points and are currently ninth, only above Venezuela. That being said, the team in fourth place has 17 points and there are four rounds left, so Paraguay still has a good chance. Of course, they really need to beat Uruguay in their next game.
When it comes to team news, Paraguay will be without Kaku, Omar Alderete, and Andres Cubas due to injuries. That being said, Cubas was also suspended anyway after being sent off against Colombia.
Paraguay predicted lineup:
Silva – Escobar, Gomez, Balbuena, Alonso – Morel – M. Rojas, Villasanti, Almiron, Samudio – Sanabria
After they lost four games in a row, Uruguay dropped down the standings to the 7th place. However, they are still just one point away from Colombia who is in fourth spot in the group. So, Uruguay still has a good chance of making it to the World Cup with four rounds remaining in the schedule, but they need to snap out of their bad run immediately.
Unfortunately, Uruguay will be without Fernando Muslera, their veteran goalkeeper who's still recovering from a serious injury. Nahitan Nandez and Lucas Torreira are also out with injury and COVID.
Uruguay predicted lineup:
Campana – Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Vina – Vecino, Valverde, Bentancur – Nunez, Suarez, Cavani
