Match in Focus


Paraguay v Qatar

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Qatar have kept six clean sheets in their last eight games
Expert verdict
Paraguay have struggled recently and enter the Copa America with only Sunday’s friendly victory over minnows Guatemala to show for their efforts since October 2017. Qatar are no mugs – they had won seven matches in a row before losing 2-0 to Brazil earlier this month – and can claim victory.
