(EFE) – Although Luis Suárez tried, without the suspended Edinson Cavani, Uruguay’s offensive line was choked on Thursday in its mission to subdue Paraguay’s, which left Montevideo with a goalless draw, the first 0-0 of these South American Qualifiers.
The match of the seventh round of the qualifiers towards the World Cup in Qatar left Paraguayans and Uruguayans with the same seven points, although those led by Eduardo Berizzo are one notch up due to their best scoring balance.
The match played at the Centenario Stadium showed a leading Uruguayan team, although without many ideas, and vulnerable to the visitor’s counterattacks, which failed to disturb goalkeeper Fernando Muslera much in their advances.
In the first half, the Colombian referee Wilmar Roldán annulled a controversial goal to Jonathan “Cabecita” Rodríguez, who today made his debut as a starter. The VAR ratified the decision by interpreting that Matías Viña participated in the play from an irregular position.
On the eighth day, which will take place on June 8, the Celeste team will visit the Venezuelan team, which today lost 3-1 on their visit to Bolivia, and the Albirroja will host Brazil.
