The September triple-fixture of the South American 2022 World Cup Qualifiers will come to an end and Matchday 10 will have a lot to be played for.

La Albirroja head into this match under pressure to turn things around. They haven't won since Matchday 2, curiously against Venezuela, and coach Eduardo Berizzo could be on the verge of being fired.

But their opponents aren't in a comfortable spot either. With interim boss Leo Gonzalez at the helm following Jose Peseiro's conflictive departure, La Vinotinto could be facing one of their last opportunities to bounce back in the tournament.

Paraguay vs Venezuela: Storylines and Head-to-Head

On Sunday, Paraguay snatched a valuable point from Colombia. However, they can't appreciate the draw yet given the complicated circumstances in which they find themselves right now. The fact that they won just once in eight rounds explains by itself how tough their current situation is.

But Venezuela are in an even worse spot as of now and the outlook isn't encouraging. The delicate atmosphere in the soccer federation is not helpful for the team's lacklustre moment as it saw Peseiro leave on short notice prior to this fixture. On Matchday 6, they recorded their sixth defeat in the tournament at Peru.

These two sides will meet for the 16th time in the World Cup Qualifiers. Paraguay have the edge with 11 wins, while Venezuela claimed the victory three times, and they drew just once.
