Match preview 🏆 

An attack of Lionel Messi, Ángel Di Maria and Sergio Agüero really should be a more potent force, but the Argentina side just doesn't look like a team at the moment. Impressive youngster Giovani Lo Celso will likely be shifted into a more central area to create chances from deep in the centre of the park, rather than from the right-hand side, where he was stationed against Colombia.

Paraguay's Newcastle United attacking midfielder Miguel Almirón looked sharp especially in the first half, and Óscar Cardozo is still going strong despite his age. With Derlis González likely to come into the side after his screamer, Paraguay will trouble the Argentine defence.

Players to watch 🌟

Paulo Dybala didn't even get off the bench against Colombia but has no defined role for the national team. He may have to settle for another place on the bench here, with Milton Casco, Matias Suarez, Rodrigo De Paul, Marcos Acuña and Roberto Pereyra are all pushing for starts. 

Derlis Gonzalez came off the bench to great effect in Paraguay's 2-2 draw with Qatar, while veteran striker Oscar Cardozo scored against Qatar and will keep his place in attack.
