Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
There will be fireworks when Paraguay and Brazil go head to head at Estadio Defensores del Chaco in the World Cup qualifiers round 8. Paraguay are undefeated on the road to Qatar, but they need to start winning on regular basis if they are to secure a top-four finish. La Albirroja did well to hold Uruguay to a goalless draw in their last group game, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Wednesday’s clash against the Selecao.
Brazil kept their 100% record in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers intact thanks to a 2-0 win over Ecuador, with the team extending their winning run to five games. Tite’s troops aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but seeing that Paraguay do not suit them, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino is widely expected to replace Gabriel Barbosa in the starting XI.
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.

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 (Brazil):
One of the most decorated teams in world football, Selecao have also been regarded as one of the most attractive and exciting teams with glowing reputation preceding them. Members of the CONMEBOL confederation, Brazil have played their first international in 1914 losing to bitter rivals Argentina with a comfortable 3-0 margin.
Brazil is the most successful nation in the FIFA World Cup with five championship title to their name. However, Selecao failed to advance past the quarter-finals of the last two tournaments last winning their World Cup in 2002. Their last title was the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and the star-studded team will be looking to get back to winning ways at this year’s historic Copa America Centenario in the United States.
Legendary Pele is Brazil’s top scorer with 77 goals to his name, while the team’s biggest star of the modern era Barcelona forward Neymar is sitting in fifth place having so far netted 46.
