Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Paraguay will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Ecuador when they take on Colombia at Estadio Defensores del Chaco. La Albirroja have recorded no more than one win in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and, as a result, the bookies see them as underdogs in Monday’s clash. Defender Alberto Espinola, who suffered an injury in the midweek defeat, is unlikely to feature against los Cafeteros.
Since Premier League star Miguel Almiron is out of contention for Paraguay, home win should not be considered. Colombia, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Bolivia. Juventus ace Juan Cuadrado eventually made the cut, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. In Luis Muriel absence, Club America attacker Roger Martinez will continue to lead the line for los Cafeteros.
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 (Colombia):
Seleccion de futbol Colombia has stepped on to the international scene in 1938 with its competitive debut against Mexico. Colombia has in recent years become a national symbol of strength representing country’s efforts to fight the negative reputation.
Passionate about their football team, Colombians have formed a huge fan base which enjoyed in their team’s impressive run to the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals at the competition in which Real Madrid star James Rodriguez was awarded the Golden Boot for most goals and the Best Goal of the Tournament awards. Jose Pekerman’s team has also been named the Fair Play team at the same event.
The fans were pretty disappointed to see their team reach the quarter-final stage at the 2015 Copa America though as Colombia crashed out in disappointing fashion losing to Argentina after a penalty kick. Radamel Falcao remains the most prominent star of the current team despite his poor spells with Manchester United and Chelsea respectively. Monaco striker is also the team’s top scorer with 25 goals added to his name.
