Argentina vs Paraguay (By: PlayMaker)
In many recent major tournaments, Argentina shows a weak face, lack of vitality and cohesion. Messi seems to be alone in a disgusting group and despite being the world's top superstar, he can hardly take it all. This scenario is again repeated in Argentina's battle against Colombia. It was a match where they did not have too many quality offensive lines while the defensive lines constantly exposed deadly gaps. All made Messi and his teammates defeat 2-0 against Colombia and had to stand at the bottom of Group B after the first match.
With the current situation, the pressure on Lionel Scaloni's team is huge, they are forced to win the second round if they do not want to be eliminated from the group stage. Moreover, a victory at this time will relieve the pressure and help Argentina return to its strong image. Their lineup has a lot of stars, what they need now is confidence, if they play properly, getting 3 points is completely within reach.
With the goal of winning 3 points, Paraguay is a perfect opponent for Argentina at this time. Paraguay's performance is not good when there is only 1 victory in the last 6 appearances since November last year, the rest are 3 draws and 2 losses. In the 1st game, the South American representatives had a bad performance, the negligence caused them to drop the victory when being equalized by Qatar despite leading up to 2 goals.
Argentina completely overcame Paraguay in the past when winning 4, drawing 2 and losing only 1 of the 7 most recent encounters. Paraguay's squad is also incomparable with Argentina's mighty star. Moreover, Paraguay is also completely inferior to Colombia, so it is difficult to stand firm against Argentina as Colombia did in the game. It can be seen that all factors are supporting Argentina to have a victory as expected.
Argentina showed somewhat better in the 2nd half against Colombia, even losing against a much more solid team but some changes from Scolani had made positive improvement at least in the statistic. Paraguay revealed their weakness in defense against Qatar so it will be hard to avoid conceding from high quality attack of Argentina. Messi and his teammates still obtain some respect from the others so they need to prove themselves right from this game.
