Argentina currently sit joint-top of Group B with four points from two games after a 1-1 draw with Chile and a 1-0 win over Uruguay. But La Albiceleste are yet to find their true attacking rhythm and need to get things clicking in the final third as they progress deeper into the tournament.
Paraguay opened their Copa America campaign in style with a 3-1 win over Bolivia last time out. But that was just Los Guaraníes’ second win in this tournament since 2007, often finding their way deep into Copa America with draws rather than victories. A statement win in this match would surely signal to the rest of South America that they’re ready to contend this time around.
