Argentina vs Paraguay: Recommended bets

Lautaro Martinez to score first. Martinez is set to lead the line for Argentina on Friday with both Paulo Dybala and Sergio Aguero sidelined.

The 23-year-old netted in Argentina’s previous outing and also scored in his last two appearances for Inter Milan.

With such competition for forward places, Martinez will be eager to impress in the absence of Dybala and Aguero on Friday.

Argentina are looking to make it three wins from three on Friday as they host Paraguay.

However, Scaloni’s team have made achieving full points hard for themselves, just about edging past both Ecuador and Bolivia.

In their opening game against Bolivia, Lionel Messi’s spot-kick proved to be the only goal of the game.

Meanwhile, in their last fixture, they were made to come from behind to beat Bolivia 2-1.

Scaloni will be hoping for better performances from his side as they look to consolidate their spot in World Cup 2022 qualifying.
