Team news & rosters

Position Paraguay roster
Goalkeepers Silva, Oritz*
Defenders Gomez, Alonso, Balbuena, Rojas, Espinola, D. Martinez, Arzamendia, Duarte, Alderete
Midfielders O. Romero, Sanchez, Villasanti, Cardozo, Piris Da Motta, Gimenez, Gamarra, Cubas, Morel, Florentin*, H. Martinez, Ojeda
Forwards Perez, A. Romero, Almiron, Sanabria, Samudio, Melgarejo, Enciso, Amarilla, Ferreira

*denotes uncapped player

Eduardo Berizzo saw his side fall short of a second win of their qualifying campaign, but he will no doubt have taken something from their loss as he looks to bolster his side's increasingly unlikely prospects.

A debut for striker Luis Amarilla up front last time suggests he could clock up consecutive caps as Los Guaranies welcome their rivals for what is shaping up to be a vital encounter.

Predicted Paraguay starting XI: Silva; Espinola, Balbuena, Alonso, D. Martinez; Morel; A. Romero, H. Martinez, Sanchez, Arzamendia; Amarilla.

Position Colombia roster
Goalkeepers Ospina, Vargas, Montero
Defenders Sanchez, Medina, Tesillo, Murillo, Munoz, Cuesta*, Roman*, Llinas*, Mosquera*
Midfielders Cuadrado, Barrios, Uribe, Mejia, Quintero, Cuellar, Moreno, Andrade, Candelo*, Perlaza*
Forwards Falcao, Diaz, Borja, Martinez, Borre, Sinisterra

*denotes uncapped player

Reinaldo Rueda will rue the fact his side could not seize three points in their first game of the international break, pinned back late on in a game punctured by drama - but his side have an immediate chance to course-correct now.

Los Cafeteros handed a debut to Andres Andrade at the ripe age of 32 against Bolivia and he could be rewarded with another cap this weekend.

Predicted Colombia starting XI:  Ospina; Munoz, Sanchez, Murillo, Tesillo; Uribe, Barrios; Cuadrado, Quintero, Diaz; Martinez.
