Bolivia looks to build on the good performance played out against Peru where they won 1-0 on Monday.
This was just their 2nd win of the qualifiers in 11 matches; which emphasizes their struggles.
Vaca’s strike seven minutes from time was the difference as Bolivia picked up a first win after 9 matches across competitions.
Bolivia is in 9th place out of 10 in the qualifier table with 9 points from 11 matches and need a massive turnaround to get into the top 4 spots.
On the other hand, Paraguay was beaten 2-0 away by Chile in their last match and hope to get back to winning ways here.
Brereton and Isla scored within 3 minutes of each other in the second half to inflict a second defeat in 5 matches on the visitors.
However, Paraguay is still in a good space with 12 points from 11 matches and continue their strive for qualification.
They are within 4 points of getting into the top 4 spots; which ensure automatic qualification.
Both sides last met in the Copa America group stage match where Paraguay won 3-1 led by Angel Romero’s double strikes.
