After four games without scoring, the Colombia selection needs to redial to consolidate in the classification posts direct to Qatar World Cup 2022. It receives Paraguay and the presence of James Rodríguez invites us to think that there will be more football and options for the forwards.
We analyze five aspects that are key to carry out the meeting in the Metropolitan Stadium.
Colombia’s first objective will be focused on not receive goals against. The defense needs to be very concentrated to avoid problems with the Paraguayan attack. It is important that the centrals do not make mistakes and have the mental fortitude to prevail before any offensive attempt of its rival.
One of the biggest problems with Rueda’s selection is in the low production of offensive football. For this reason, you need a midfield with players who can generate danger in their outings to attack. The central midfielders will be important at the start of the game and their collaboration with the creative footballers will be necessary to accompany the forwards.
The players who have the responsibility to play as wingers accompanied by the wingers They will have the responsibility of opening the court and generating danger with their overflows and centers to the heart of the area so that the forwards have more options to score. Win direct duels in front of the Guarani it will be one of the keys to achieve this goal and unlocking a game that could be complicated by the good albirroja defense.
Colombia needs end the scoring drought of the last matches. It is very important that the strikers they are in tune and do not waste any goal option have in front of the goalkeeper Antony silva. It takes many annotations to improve goal difference which at the moment is negative with -1. Duvan Zapata, Miguel Angel Borja or any of the attackers are required to be effective and not waste the scoring options they have during the match.
Possibly this would be one of the most important keys Well, Colombia does not have many players with the talent of the midfielder. Against Paraguay James needs to be reunited with his best version to help build the team’s offensive game. Hitting the steering wheel will be a very dangerous weapon with which you can beat the Paraguayans. James could hit the tricolor clarity in the attack, filtered passes, crosses to the heart of the area, shots from medium distance, charges of free-kicks and corner kicks and leadership in the middle of the field.
The best players in Colombia They need to improve their performance and excel against Paraguay to get the three points. If the game is very stuck and the collective game does not work, it will be the moment of the individualities. In this case, footballers like Luis Diaz, Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, James Rodríguez, Duván Zapata or Miguel Ángel Borja are forced to solve with their talent a game that has to be won.
Faced with a very tight defense, talent, magic and creativity will be the key so that with an individual move, the Paraguayans’ lock can be opened and the team can be guided to a possible victory.
