Paraguay vs Argentina: prediction for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier
After half of the qualifying rounds have been played, it becomes clear, which teams have a chance to get to the World Cup. The Guarani are among these teams, but at the moment they are losing two points to the Top 5. In the last game, Paraguay played host to Venezuela and managed to earn three points. Eduardo Berisso's charges scored an early goal and then controlled the ball and kept the score. In the second half, they secured the lead with a second goal. Venezuela could only get a consolation goal right at the end of the game (2:1).
Argentina are 2nd in the table and undoubtedly one of the main favorites in their region. The Albicelesti won the Copa America this year, defeating Brazil in the final (1:0). Lionel Scaloni's team did not lose a single game at that tournament. In the previous World Cup qualifier, Argentina left no chance to Bolivia, getting a clean-sheet victory at home (3:0). Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick and now is the third-best scorer in the South American qualification.
In 2 of the last 3 h2h games, both teams scored.
In 4 out of 5 previous games, Argentina scored over 1.5 goals.
The forward has scored 5 goals.
Paraguay still has chances of qualifying for the World Cup, but they haven't been convincing lately. Eduardo Berisso's played well against Venezuela, but those are the outsiders of the region. Argentina, on the contrary, look formidable. The Albicelesti won 8 games in a row, and Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick in the last one. We believe that the visitors will extend their winning streak today.
Our prediction - Argentina to win

On the one hand, the hosts will be happy with a draw against Argentina. But on the other hand, if Paraguay want to qualify, they must take risks. We think that Paraguay will play open football and expect the sides to score more than 2 goals.
Second bet - total over 2 goals
