Paraguay hosts Ecuador in round 17 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Friday, March 25th at Estadio Antonio Oddone Sarubbi (Ciudad del Este)
The national team of Paraguay fails the qualification for the 2022 World Cup. Alas, the performance at the world championship in 2010 remains the last for the Guaranies. After that, they could not gain promotion to this major tournament. The start of the current qualifiers was quite good for the Red-Whites, as they did not suffer a single defeat in the first five rounds. But then the results began to decline. In the last seven games in a row, Guillermo Schelotto’s men didn’t win a single victory and earned only two points. Now the Paraguayans are only on the penultimate line in the standings, having no chance of getting to the 2022 World Cup.

The Ecuadorian national team is another infrequent participant in the world championships. The last time the Tricolors qualified for the World Cup was in 2014, and then they never managed to be promoted to such a major tournament. Fortunately, now the Ecuadorians have excellent chances to break the streak of failures, since they are in third place in the standings and will certainly get at least into the playoffs. Gustavo Alfaro’s men did not know the bitterness of defeats in the last five consecutive matches. They gained two victories and three draws, so it’s clear that they are in high spirits and in great shape.
These national teams have played 34 official head-to-head matches. The Paraguayans gained 18 victories, the Ecuadorians were stronger in ten matches, and six games ended in a draw. The goal difference is also on the side of the Red-Whites: 69-51. The opponents played one match in the current qualifiers, and then the Ecuadorian national team celebrated a 2-0 victory. The Tricolors need only one win to go to the 2022 World Cup, and they will do their best to gain it in the upcoming match. The thing is that in the final round, they will face the Argentines, who are not ready to slow down, even though they have accomplished all their tasks. But now Ecuador will fight with the Paraguayan team, which has already lost the chance to travel to Qatar. Moreover, the Guaranies have suffered five defeats and gained one draw in the last six matches. As a result, a bet on the victory of Ecuador suggests itself.
