After sharing the spoils with Ecuador in their last qualifying match, Brazil will look to retain top position in the standings when they take on Paraguay at Mineirao on Tuesday morning.
The Selecao will be without suspended defender Emerson Royal against La Albirroja, while both Fabinho and Paqueta return to contention. Neymar remains on the sidelines with injury, while Ajax ace Antony is pushing for a start.
Paraguay, on the other hand, suffered yet another heart-breaking defeat in the 2022 WC qualifiers, with the team losing to Uruguay in front of home fans.
Paraguay are not regarded as good travelers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Brazil’s party at Mineirao.
All Andres Cubas, Celso Ortiz, Roberto Fernandez, and Omar Alderete are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side. In their last meeting in the World Cup qualifiers Brazil defeated Paraguay 2-0.
This match will be played on 02/02/2022 at 01:30
Score Prediction: 2-1
Recommended pick: Home Win
