As they ride high from six consecutive victories without conceding a goal, Argentina, the current world champions, are set to challenge Paraguay this Friday at the Estadio Mas Monumental. The contest comes on the heels of the recent announcement of Argentina and Paraguay co-hosting the 2030 World Cup opener with Uruguay. This historical event will mark a century of the esteemed tournament.

Ever since clinching the title against France in 2022, Argentina’s squad has been unstoppable, amassing 17 goals in their favor. Their spectacular streak, starting with triumphant friendlies against nations like Panama and Australia, was highlighted by recent wins against Ecuador and Bolivia in the World Cup qualifiers.

While the iconic Lionel Messi was absent, Argentina’s forwards, including Enzo Fernandez and Nicolas Gonzalez, stepped up, particularly against a 10-player Bolivia squad.

Per FIFA rankings, Argentina holds the top spot and shares the CONMEBOL leaderboard with Brazil. Given their record – undefeated in 26 out of 28 home World Cup qualifiers since 2009 – confidence is high. But Paraguay, despite Argentina’s recent dominance, has proven to be a challenging opponent. Their previous matchup in 2022 ended in a stalemate.

However, Paraguay’s performance has wavered. After managing just one win in a year, they bid farewell to coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto last month. With Schelotto, they had a disheartening draw against Peru and a last-minute loss to Venezuela.

Paraguay now welcomes Daniel Garnero as their new head coach. An Argentine himself, Garnero is taking on international coaching for the first time, after eight years at club level in Paraguay. Focusing on an offensive strategy, he’ll be tested immediately against Argentina.

Paraguay desperately needs an offensive boost. They’ve netted just one goal in 11 fixtures and haven’t marked an away game with a goal since a 2020 draw against Argentina.

For Argentina, Paulo Dybala and Juan Foyth are sidelined due to injuries, and Lisandro Martinez is recovering from surgery. But the good news is Lionel Messi’s potential return. Alongside him might be Julian Alvarez and Nicolas Gonzalez. Central defense could see Cristian Romero and Nicolas Otamendi, while the midfield could be helmed by Fernandez, Alexis Mac Allister, and Rodrigo De Paul. Fresh faces from AC Milan and Southampton are also on Scaloni’s list and may get a chance to shine.

On Paraguay’s side, injuries have caused Andres Cubas, Cristhian Paredes, and Diego Gomez to step back. Potential midfield replacements include Richard Sanchez and Alejandro Romero, with Mathias Villasanti as a constant. Newcastle United’s Miguel Almiron is likely to feature prominently upfront.
