ARG Vs PAR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Paraguay look to make the most of laggard Argentina attacking unit.
They might be unbeaten in their last nine fixtures, a run of form which has extended into the South American World Cup qualifiers but Argentina have hardly made for a daunting opposition. For all their might, stature and repertoire of worldclass names, the side has as ever failed to justify its worth as a team on the pitch.
Traditionally a side which has always underachieved, Argentina have as has been typical of them for way too long now, have underperformed in the qualifiers as well. Whilst they sit in second spot in the points tally with two wins from two, none of them have been convincing.
Despite taking on sides way below them in the arena, Argentina have just about managed to scamper their way to wins. It’s a predicament which Paraguay will be looking to capitalise on, a club which is undefeated in its last five outings.
ARG Vs PAR Fantasy Probable Winner
Unbeaten in three away world cup qualifiers as well, Paraguay are going to launch an extremely stern and stiff challenge infront of Argentina today. This will be a tie where the defences will determine the contest, a fixture which should just about swing in Argentina’s favour by the one goal.

It took some time coming but Emiliano Martinez is finally getting the recognition he deserves. His incredible form this year has seen him earn a call up into Argentina’s squad for today’s clash with him set to be handed over the duty of safeguarding his side’s sticks.
Conceding just once in their last two matches including the one cleansheet, Argentina have turned to their backline to compensate for the side’s lack of goals. And the defenders have been more than willing to deliver as well, names who have inducted in a place a sound and compact brand of defending.
Their acumen sees us opt for Nicolas Otamendi and Nicolas Tagliafico from the country. We are also going to be opting for the two defenders from Paraguay given Argentina’s inability to string together two meaningful attacking plays.
Also, with Paraguay having shown they are good for a cleansheet at any given time with the one already in two contests, it was only prudent of us to opt for both Gustavo Gomez and Junior Alonso.
Scoring both of Paraguay’s goals in the side’s bygone 2-2 draw, Angel Romero finds himself as the side’s top scorer. Miguel Almiron will partner him up for the contest, a player who has proven his worth in the Premier League.
Argentina on the other hand will see us immerse in the services of Rodrigo de Paul and Lucas Ocampos. Two shining lights in an otherwise horrid attacking unit, the two’s ball handling abilities and ability to spray the ball across the park makes them must have picks.
Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez have hardly formed the sensational partnership many envisaged they would, Despite that they’ll find a place in our setup, an electric partnership which can pull off a gripping performance at any moment of time.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Messi’s goal sees him captain our team while Otamendi is the vice-captain.
