It has been an almost flawless campaign for Brazil going unbeaten in the qualifiers and losing just to Argentina last year in the Copa America final. In fact, that is the Selecao’s only defeat in 22 matches in all competitions. With four matches remaining, one of them against Argentina that was abandoned, Brazil will do their best to maintain their record.

Therefore, don’t expect the Green and Yellow to come up against Paraguay underestimating their opponents. Coach Tite knows the Brazilian fans are merciless and want to win especially on home soil. Brazil won the last four meetings with Paraguay in the WCQ in Brazil and three of them by a two-goal margin.

After an eventful showdown in the last round against Ecuador, the Selecao did well to manage a point in a heated affair that saw Emerson from Brazil and Dominguez from Paraguay dismissed. 

Goalkeeper Allison was shown the red card twice before it was reversed by VAR on both occasions. Such are the games in South America and going undefeated in 14 matches is a big achievement.

Paraguay have just two wins and seven draws in 15 matches and with two away games in Brazil and Peru still to play, they are almost certainly out of contention for a top-five finish.

Coach Schelotto’s team has not scored against their hosts in their last three meetings. Moreover, with nine goals in the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualification campaign the Guaranies have the worst scoring record among the ten South American national teams.

No match in South America is a stroll in the park not even for Brazil against whom all teams play hard to get the best possible result. Tite will play to win that’s for sure and we expect a fine Brazilian performance with more goals than their last two encounters. Hence, we back Brazil to win by two goals.

Brazil vs Paraguay Team News

Tottenham’s Emerson will miss this match after his red card against Ecuador. Dani Alves can start at right-back as Tite might have some changes to the team he played in Quito. There are no major injury worries in the Brazilian camp and coach Tite will have a full squad to select from.

Paraguay’s central defender Gustavo Gomez saw two yellow cards and was dismissed against Uruguay. Coach Schelotto Barros may start with Robert Rojas who came on as a substitute in the last match. However, Paraguay’s main problem is upfront as Barros can’t find the right combination of players who can score goals that are lacking in the last six matches.
