Colombia vs Paraguay: Colombia will be taking on Paraguay on matchday 14 of the South American World Cup qualifiers. Both teams are still in with a chance of securing a place for themselves in the World Cup in Qatar next year.
Colombia vs Paraguay: Preview
Colombia are in desperate need of points, as they currently sit 5th in the South American table of the World Cup qualifiers. They had to swallow a bitter pill in their previous match against Brazil, coming out with a 1-0 defeat against one of the top teams in the continent. They have won only 3 matches from their first 13 matches, and as many as 7 matches have ended in stalemates. The Colombians would need their strikers to fire to claim all three points against Paraguay.
Paraguay are in a similar position as their matchday rivals, sitting lowly at the 8th position out of the 10 teams in a bid for a place in the World Cup next year. The Paraguayans are on a 4 match winless run and have lost their last 3 matches in the World Cup qualifying rounds. An own goal from their goalkeeper against Chile further added to the trouble, and it saw them suffer a 1-0 defeat in a close match.
