Match Report

In what can only be described as a disastrous result, Argentina lost 1-0 to Paraguay at home.

One win, two draws and one defeat are what Argentina have accumulated as results under Edgardo BAUZA and the worst is yet to come. Fielding what can only be described as a massively unbalanced team, BAUZA’s lack of tactical awareness cost him and team. The lines were too far and wide between the midfielders and attackers which was a problem that haunted Argentina the entire match.

The goal came through a massive mess-up in the midfield which left GONZALEZ free on the ball with 35 year old Martin DEMICHELIS trying to play catch up. The result? Sergio ROMERO beatin at his near post and Paraguay picked up all three points.

Sergio AGUERO had a penalty saved minutes into the second half and Marcos ROJO had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside. But that was it. At one point, BAUZA threw in everything including the kitchen sink. Paulo DYBALA, Lucas PRATTO, Gonzalo HIGUAIN, Angel DI MARIA and Sergio AGUERO all on at the same time. But nothing to show for it.

In what was supposed to be Argentina’s easiest match (on paper) in a while turned out to be a disaster. Next up? A match away to Brazil and after that at home to Colombia.
