Argentina host Paraguay on Tuesday night in Cordoba in what is a must win match for them.
It’s 5th place Argentina against 6th place Paraguay on Tuesday. Argentina are currently on 16 points (tied with 3rd and 4th place Ecuador and Colombia) while Paraguay are on 12 points. A win for the home team on Tuesday would certainly start to create some distance between them and the team behind.

Make sure to visit our World Cup Qualifiers page for full match fixtures, results and more. The team has drawn their last two matches 2-2 and will need these 3 points going into the November fixtures when they are away to Brazil and home to Colombia. Edgardo BAUZA confirmed the line-up as following:
ROMERO; MERCADO, DEMICHELIS, MUSACCHIO, ROJO; BANEGA, MASCHERANO; GAITAN, AGUERO, DI MARIA; HIGUAIN
The CB partnership for Argentina is an absolute new one, with veteran Martin DEMICHELIS partnering alongside Mateo MUSACCHIO, who will be earning his 3rd cap (DEMICHELIS is on 49 caps himself). DEMICHELIS last played for Argentina earlier this year (also in Cordoba) when Argentina picked up a 2-0 victory against Bolivia in a World Cup Qualifier. MUSACCHIO has not played a match for Argentina since March 2015 in a 2-0 friendly against El Salvador.
Argentina’s joint top scorer in these qualifiers Gabriel MERCADO (2 goals) returns to the line-up in place of the suspended Pablo ZABALETA. In midfield, Ever BANEGA replaces Matias KRANEVITTER. And up front, Nicolas GAITAN comes in for Cordoba’s own Paulo DYBALA.

We are already in trouble because we will lose both games in November under this clown Bauza.

Bolivia 2:2 Ecuador
Colombia 2:2 Uruguay
The goalscorer for Bolivia, a guy literally named Pablo Escobar 😀
Not the worst result for us although it would have been better if Ecuador and Colombia lost.
Yes Enganche. Bolivia and colombia has helped kept the points within reachable range for argentina..
Fak few more minutes Ecuador would lost the match now it is 2-2 ..still better
Where to watch live match
Columbia 1 up…according to Aguero Pep wanted to coach Argentina NT
Hopefully bolivia and uruguay will win to reduce our stress.
Vamos Argentina, we need these 3 points very badly!
If we lose points here, we will be in trouble. Three points is an absolute necessity now!
We were undefeated even in the last 2 Copa finals. But that brings nothing to us. We need to qualify 2018 WC being the best. And the job is to Bauza’s to be done.
