Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, slows down against fierce Paraguay in Asuncion. 0-0 in the qualifiers against Qatar 2022 | football | Sports

The confrontation was fair but there was a problem between the Paraguayans who finished the duel with more force and conviction than Argentina.

Paraguay and Argentina tied 0-0 on Thursday in Asuncion in a game where goalkeepers from both teams excelled and locals rushed Lionel Messi’s team in the second half, which was inaccurate throughout the match.

Paraguay remains in sixth place in the South American qualifying qualifiers for Qatar, with 12 points, and Argentina in second place after Brazil, with 19 points, and a less controversial match.

The confrontation was fair but there was a problem between the Paraguayans who finished the duel with more force and conviction than Argentina.

The Albiceleste team came out very calmly from the start, as Messi and Joaquin Correa started with two shots on goal saved by Anthony Silva, the character of the Perugia.

In control of the ball and a mission to attack, that was the beginning for the Argentines, who, however, are no longer in danger in the Silva area, well supported by fencer Omar Alderet.

The group had half-gas spells that the GuaranĂ­ exploited, although until the end of that period they had not made sequential attacks, despite a great lack of appreciation on the part of the duo Angel Romero and Antonio Sanabria.

In fact, the clearest way the locals played at the time was the action of the defender, always Santiago Arzamendia, who fired in the first five poisoning shots that forced Emiliano Martinez to brag.

Arzamendia and Otamendi were the best passers in the second half of Alberuga, and were very strong on their counter-attacks once they recovered from De Paul’s warning at 49, a cross shot that did not find the final push.

So much so that Otamendi gave a long, perfect pass to road manager Miguel Almiron, who scrambled to Martinez’s door, covering what he sang as a goal.

Villasante also saved the Alberoga by blocking a header from Correa a short distance from Silva’s goal, which would have been a first for the Argentines.

Alejandro Papu Gomez, who entered via Rodrigo de Paul, put Silva’s quality to the test, as he fired a cannonball from the corner. (Dr)
