Argentina 0 - 1 Paraguai

Without Messi, Argentina is just another team. The 'albiceleste' lost to Paraguay 0-1 and they are fifht in the Conmebol qualifications for the Russia World Cup 2018. Edgardo Bauza's men need to react if they don't want a late surprise.

"We don't see the light. We are losing points and the qualification gets more difficult. It's clear we need to react, not in attitude but in our game. We offered a very poor performance".

Missing Messi

Di Maria said: "When he is not here, it's always difficult. More difficult. When you give him the ball he just decides the game".
