Only four points separate Colombia and Paraguay in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup as the two teams collide at the Estadio Metropolitano in Barranquilla, Colombia, on Tuesday.
Goals could be at a premium considering neither team has managed to score in its last four games, and tensions were clear when this pair drew 1–1 back in September.

Only four points separate fourth- and ninth-place in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers.
Paraguay began the campaign in promising fashion by going undefeated in their first five, though they’ve since lost their way and recorded three defeats in their last three outings.
New manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto made an unsuccessful start in the Paraguayan post after losing 1–0 at home to Chile on Thursday, the team's second loss to Chile in the space of a month.
Colombia, meanwhile, lost a hard-fought match 1–0 to Brazil the following day, with Lucas Paquetá popping up late with the game’s only goal in São Paulo.
That brought an end to Colombia's streak of seven games without a loss, having been the first team to take qualification points off leader Brazil just last month.
That poses considerable promise of the improvements being made under Reinaldo Rueda, though there’s undeniably been a lack of killer touch after failing to score in four.
Radamel Falcao’s absence due to injury isn’t likely to help Colombia in that regard, with the country’s captain and all-time top scorer remaining with club Rayo Vallecano following injury.
On the other side of the park, Paraguay forward Ángel Romero—the nation’s top scorer in qualifying with four goals—will look to impress as he continues to search for a new club, having left San Lorenzo in August.
