Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 10pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on Premier Sports.


Paraguay come into the fixture having taken an unlikely point against Argentina in their opening game, in a nerve wracking 2-2 draw with the title favourites. An equaliser in the dying minutes was enough to pull off the first big upset of the Copa, with Lionel Messi's side being touted as the team to beat in the tournament.

The manager is unlikely to make too many changes to the squad which played out of their skin in the last game but may consider bringing Lucas Barrios to the starting line-up after his equaliser. Derlis González was also a notable absentee from the starting XI and can replace Raul Bobadilla.

Jamaica put up a good show against defending champions Uruguay but failed to bring the final touch which ultimately led to their downfall. The manager has to train his players to be solid at the back given Paraguay's attacking prowess and also ask his forwards to act more freely and hope that they convert the half chances that come their way.
