Peru vs Paraguay – Paraguay has no need to play and is only here to complete the schedule. They’ve already been ousted from the Qualifiers, with only two wins to their name throughout the campaign.
They advanced past the group stages of the recent Copa America but were eliminated in the first knockout round. The players are discouraged, and they’ve decided to go on the road. It would be foolish to hold out hope for anything spectacular from them tomorrow.
For Peruvians, though, this is a golden opportunity. They’re still fighting for a qualification slot, and a win is essential for them.
They’ve had a decent Qualifiers campaign so far, and if the toppers hadn’t been in such bad form, they might have secured a trip to Qatar.
It’s also worth noting that Peru had advanced to the semi-finals of the recent Copa America, only to be ousted by none other than Brazil. Also, consider the fact that they have a better head-to-head record against Paraguayans over the years.
