In the CONMEBOL 2018 World Cup qualifiers, Brazil will host Paraguay at the Arena Corinthians this Tuesday, March 28, 2017 (5:45 PM Pacific). While Brazil has cemented its place for the next World Cup, Paraguay is still in the fight for a spot to compete in Russia.
Brazil has been the best team in this CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying stage, currently in first place with 30 points, seven points ahead of Uruguay in second. Most recently Brazil defeated Uruguay 4-1 away from home with a goal by Neymar and a hat-trick by an unlikely hero, Paulinho. The five-time World Cup champions do have a world class team with players like Neymar, Marcelo, Willian and Phillippe Coutinho. Brazil should be able to take this match especially in front of a home crowd but Paraguay will be no easy task.
Paraguay is coming from a huge 2-1 win over Ecuador in matchday 13 of the competition. The ‘guaranies’ are currently in a contested battle for a World Cup spot in seventh place with 18 points, only two points back of Ecuador in fifth and three points back of Colombia in fourth.
Some of the better players that Paraguay does count with include a strong core from the Liga MX and a few players that play in Europe like Juan Manuel Iturbe and Dario Lezcano. The match should be a thrilling encounter between two teams in the fight for a spot in the next World Cup. While Brazil pretty much has its place secure in Russia, Paraguay will desperately seek the favorable result from this match.
