Argentina look for important 3 points at home

Argentina Line-up

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:


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.

Argentina are undefeated in these World Cup Qualifiers in the year 2016. Here are the results (click on match for full line-ups and more).

    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.

    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.
