Los Guaraníes and La Verde will lock horns trying to kick off their performance in the tournament with a convincing win. Follow their match with this guide.

The 2020 Copa América is already underway, and Group A's action for Matchday 1 will come to an end with the clash between Paraguay and Bolivia, two teams trying to impress and make a statement about their chances in the competition.

The Paraguayan side will get to this game with only one win in their last six games, although only one of those matches ended in defeat. Eduardo Berizzo's men have struggled to win games in the CONMEBOL Qualifiers, which have seen them draw four of their matches even when they had the lead at some point of their clashes. The team's most recent match concluded in a 2-0 loss against Brazil.

As for La Verde, the team coached by César Farías finally claimed a win in a competitive game during the recent World Cup Qualifiers, ending a drought that had gone on since September 2017. Speaking about games taking place since 2020, the Bolivian side had lost five of their last eight, including a 5-0 loss to Brazil. The team's last match prior to the South American tournament ended in a one-all draw against Chile.

Paraguay will enter the Copa América with a host of young players to follow coach Eduardo Berizzo's plan of a reconstruction. Their team includes players such as 17-year old Julio Enciso or 20-year old Braian Ojeda, with both of them eager to earn their first cap with La Albirroja. The most experienced players in the team are their goalkeepers, with No.1 Anthony Silva representing the old guard with his 37 years of age. The team's offensive weight will be carried by Newcastle's Miguel Almirón, who has failed to make a big impact with the national team after more than 25 apps.

On the other hand, Bolivia will rely on a more experienced side for this competition. Some of the players involved in the tournament will be all-time goalscoring leader Marcelo Moreno, Juan Carlos Arce, or goalkeeper Carlos Lampe. The presence of 19-year-old Jaume Cuéllar has also gathered the attention of Bolivian media outlets, mainly because he was born in Spain and some believe he should not have been selected by Farias to represent La Verde.

This will be the 68th game between the national teams of Paraguay and Bolivia. La Albirroja have won 34 of those games, with only 15 games being won by La Verde. What really stands out in the meetings between Paraguay and Bolivia is the amount of goals scored by the Paraguayan side, since they have found the back of Bolivia's net 134 times, one of the highest tallies in any South American rivalry.
