ARGENTINA v PARAGUAY BETTING PREVIEW
Argentina have won their three warm-up matches by an aggregate scoreline of nine goals to one. Their last friendly match against Bolivia was impressive, hammering them 5-0, with Aguero scoring a hat-trick and di Maria netting twice. They come in great form and have lost only 1 of their last 6 international fixtures.
Gerardo Martino is likely to stick to the 4-3-3 formation with Messi, Aguero and Di Maria up front. Strikers Gonzalo Higuain, Carlos Tevez and Ezequiel Lavezzi are all likely to start the match from the bench. Fernando Gago, who suffered a muscle strain in training, and fellow midfielder Lucas Biglia are both doubtful. Pablo Zabaleta sat out the recent 5-0 thrashing of Bolivia, but is expected to be reinstated into the starting XI.
Paraguay finished as runners up in 2011 Copa America. They lost the final 3-0 to Uruguay but they claimed Brazil amongst their scalps along the way. Since then, the Albiroja had a miserable World Cup campaign with a W1-D2-L4 record in the 2014/15 season, suffering defeats against China and South Korea.
Coach Ramon Diaz is widely expected to adopt a defence-minded approach against la Albiceleste. He is likely to switch to a 4-5-1 formation with Roque Santa Cruz as lone striker. Pablo Aguilar missed the 2-2 draw with Honduras, but is likely to partner the experienced Paulo Da Silva at heart of the Paraguay backline.
Paraguay have won only 1 of their last 6 meetings with Argentina. When the two sides met in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers the Albiceleste recorded two wins over Paraguay with 5-2 and 3-1 scorelines.
