Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
After holding Argentina to a draw in Buenos Aires, Paraguay will be looking to return to winning ways in the World Cup qualifiers when they take on Bolivia in their fourth group game. La Albirroja are undefeated in the qualifiers, and they are seen as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s clash. Bolivia experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 home loss to Valencia-less Ecuador, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Paraguay’s party in Asuncion.
La Verde are tough to beat at home as they play at high altitude, but they are not regarded as good travellers. In their last meeting in Asuncion Paraguay recorded a 2-1 win over Bolivia, and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself. Juarez attacker Dario Lezcano is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Alejandro Romero Gamarra):
Born in Ciudadela, Argentina on January 11, 1995, Alejandro Romero Gamarra is an attacking midfielder who plays for New York Red Bulls. The Argentine footballer, commonly known as Kaku, began his youth career at Huracan and he continued playing for el Globo at senior level.
After scoring nine goals in 94 appearances for the club, Kaku joined New York Red Bulls in the winter of 2018. Alejandro Romero Gamarra made his MLS debut for the Metros in a 2-0 win over Olimpia in the CONCACAF Champions League. Gamarra scored his first goal for New York Red Bulls in a 3-1 triumph over Club Tijuana in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Kaku has yet to earn a call-up for Argentina national team, but he made 5 appearances for the U20 team. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he can be used as a winger as well. In the 2013/2014 season he won Copa Argentina with Huracan.
Highlighted Team (Bolivia):
Bolivian Football Federation has been established in 1926 and it is one of the 10 member of South American Football Confederation. Managed by Julio César Baldivieso, La Verde have gone through difficult times since their second place finish at Copa America 1997.
Three-time World Cup participants have last appeared at the global stage in 1994 and they have never gone past the first round on any of the three tournaments, scoring only one goal at the tournament held in the USA. Bolivia took part in 24 Copa America tournaments since their debut in 1926 and the most prominent result was their 1963 title.
Luis Hector Cristaldo and Marco Sandy are the two players with most caps for Bolivia with their 93 international appearances, while Joaquin Botero’s name still stands at the top of the scoring charts with the former Bolivian international netting 20 during his time with the national team.
