Storylines Copa America 2021
Argentina: The performance against Uruguay was surprising and convincing, though the score doesn’t reflect it. The defense was exceptional, not even allowing Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and company to get a shot on goal. But when it comes to Paraguay, they will have a bit more speed to be worried about. Expect the fullbacks to sit a bit further back to prioritize defending since their opponents love to get down the wings. Going forward, Argentina should have enough to win, but most thought the same back in November when they met in World Cup qualifying.
Paraguay: The score line against Bolivia, 3-1, may be deceiving. All the goals came after the Bolivians were reduced to 10 men for the entire second half. But, with that man advantage Paraguay bombarded them with chances. For the match, Paraguay had 34 shots and 11 on frame. They will likely come nowhere close to that in this one, but they must focus on possessing the ball and playing an ugly, physical match to throw Argentina off. Also keep an eye on set pieces where Gustavo Gomez has a real chance to make an impact in attack.
