The international break is set to witness an exciting fixture this week as Argentina lock horns with Paraguay in a crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier on Thursday. Both teams have made positive starts to their campaigns and will have a point to prove in this game.
Paraguay were held to a 2-2 draw by Peru in their first game but bounced back with a narrow 1-0 victory against Venezuela last month. The Paraguayans have troubled Argentina on several occasions in the past and will want to take something away from this fixture.
Argentina have revamped their squad over the past few years and with Lionel Scaloni at the helm, the South American giants hold a slight upper hand in this game. Argentina have won both their games in the qualifying campaign so far and will be looking forward to maintaining their perfect record this week.
