Paraguay is currently in seventh place of the CONMEBOL qualifying standings. The team has been inconsistent lately as they had two wins, two losses, and two draws in their last six outings.

Los Guaraníes is coming off an impressive 1-0 win over tournament favorites Argentina on the road at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes in Córdoba during the last matchday on Oct. 11, The Sun reported.

Dynamo Kyiv winger Derlis Gonzales scored the winning goal for head coach Francisco Arce's side in the 18th minute of the match as the team took advantage of Argentina captain Lionel Messi's absence due to injury.

Manchester City striker Sergio Agüero had the chance to score an equalizer in the 47th, but his penalty kick was saved by Paraguay goalkeeper Justo Villar. The 39-year-old Villar is unavailable in this match against Peru and will be replaced by Roberto Junior Fernandez in the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, Peru was nipped by reigning Copa America champions Chile, 1-2, at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos in Santiago also in the previous matchday, as per Daily Mail Online.

Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal opened the scoring in the 10th minute before attacking midfielder Edison Flores found the equalizer in the 76th off an assist by teammate Pedro Aquino.

However, Vidal netted his second goal of the game in the 85th, directing a cross by Mauricio Isla towards the net of Peru keeper Pedro Gallese, to deny head coach Ricardo Gareca's squad the victory.

Peru is in the eighth spot of the CONMEBOL table, four points behind Paraguay. The team is on a two-game winless slide.
