Uruguay Y Paraguay They are two teams with a very similar style, with a soccer idiosyncrasy with many points of contact, and historically the confrontations between the two have been even and fought, but the statistics of the last years mark a clear predominance of Celeste.
In the last ten games, Uruguay has registered a balance of six wins, three draws and only one loss. The favorable streak began in the 2004 Copa América, when the Oriental team beat the Guarani 3-1 at the Tacna Stadium (Peru) with a goal from Carlos Bueno and two from Darío Silva.
Then came the duel in 2004 through the Playoffs heading to the World Cup in Germany, with Uruguayan win 1-0 at the Centenario Stadium with a goal from Paolo Montero.
Later the only defeat of this period is registered, and it was in the qualifying rounds to qualify for the World Cup in South Africa. On 2007, Los Celestes (which were already led by Oscar Tabárez), fell 1-0 at Defensores del Chaco with a goal from Nelson Haedo Valdez.
But from that day on, Uruguay did not lose to Paraguay again. On 2009 was 2-0 victory in the Centennial with annotations by Diego Lugano and Diego Forlán by Qualifiers towards the 2010 World Cup.
On 2011 surely the most remembered was recorded, since it was the 3-0 win with goals from Diego Forlán (2) and Luis Suárez at the Monumental de Núñez, which gave Tabárez’s team the 15th America’s Cup to the Charrúa people.
After that resounding triumph they followed three ties: 1-1 in Asuncion (goals from Richard Ortiz and Diego Forlán), 1-1 in Montevideo (annotations by Luis Suárez and Edgard Benítez) for the Qualifiers towards the World Cup in Brazil, and another 1-1 (goals by José María Giménez and Lucas Barrios) for the 2015 Copa América in La Serena, Chile.
In the last two, Uruguay returned to the path of victory, registering on the way to the World Cup in Russia a victory at the Centenario Stadium 4-0 in 2016 with goals from Cristian Rodríguez, Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani (2 ), and 2-1 at Defensores del Chaco in 2017 with scores by Gustavo Gómez (e / c) and Federico Valverde.
