Our prediction for this World Cup 2026 match:
Paraguay will be aiming to recover from a 1-0 loss to Argentina when they take on Bolivia at Estadio Antonio Aranda on Tuesday evening. La Albirroja are desperate to record their first win in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers and they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Robert Rojas is pushing for a start, while a man to watch in the home team will be Newcastle United ace Miguel Almiron.
La Verde, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with three defeats and given their shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Paraguay. Roberto Fernandez has yet to serve his ban, while Bolivia forward Rodrigo Ramallo is pushing for a recall to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in a 2-1 loss to Ecuador in the last group game.
Highlighted Team (Paraguay):
Los Guaranies are the part of CONMEBOL confederation vying for glory at the international scene since 1919 and their debut loss to Argentina 5-1. Paraguay are regular participants at the Copa America winning the tournament on two occasions thus far, most recently in 1979.
They came close to glory in recent editions of the tournament as they fell short in the final of 2011 to Uruguay, while they finished fourth in 2015. The most successful period of the Paraguay national team came under Argentine coach Gerardo Martino, who took Paraguay to the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup for the first time in history. Following the 2010 success, Paraguay failed to qualify for their fourth successive FIFA World Cup finals as they have also missed out on the third consecutive global championship held inside their own continent.
Toluca FC centre back Paulo da Silva is the most capped player of the Paraguay national team, while former Bayern Munich and Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz is the team’s top scorer with 32 goals to his name.
