20 Nov 2018

74' CHANCE! Tau whips in a low cross towards Makaringe, who struggles to get a solid boot on the delivery as the Paraguay defence clears the danger.

20 Nov 2018

71' THREAT! Paraguay glide pass the Bafana Bafana defence which sees Paredez failing to make the effort count as his strike comfortably saved by Williams.

20 Nov 2018

64' Serero enters the fray with Maboe making way

20 Nov 2018

20 Nov 2018

58' CHANCE! Almiron drifts towards the far post and is found with a long ball into the box from left midfield. He brings it down before looking to strike at goal, but he shoots wide of the near post.

20 Nov 2018

53' Close for South Africa as Pule collects the loose ball in midfield before looking to play Tau in on goal, but the pass is well read by the Paraguayan defence as they intercept and clear.

20 Nov 2018

49' Both sides starting the second-half very hesitant to commit too much men forward as of yet.

20 Nov 2018

47' Paraguay make four changes themselves with Kaku, Sanabria, R. Ortiz and Paredes replace Gonzalez, Santander, Alderete and C. Ortiz.

20 Nov 2018

20 Nov 2018

45' Second-half is underway ...

20 Nov 2018

The home side struggling in defence while showing real intent in attack. 

Thoughts of the first-half?

20 Nov 2018

HALF-TIME!!

20 Nov 2018

44' Madisha redeems himself with a goalscoring save as Dominguez pulls the trigger.

20 Nov 2018

43' CHANCE! It's another poor error from Madisha as he's dispossessed by Santander in midfield. The forward makes his way into the box before shooting across the face of goal, but his effort goes wide of the far post.

20 Nov 2018

41' Paraguay much more clinical in the final third, whereas Bafana fail to find themselves in great positions.

20 Nov 2018

40' CHANCE! Keet beaten as Dominguez's strike hits the upright. So near yet so far. 

20 Nov 2018

35' CHANCE! Pule accelerates away from a Paraguay defender and sees the opportunity to take a strike only for Silva to punch it away.

Great attacking intent from South Africa. 

20 Nov 2018

Poor defending sees Santander tap in from close range as Keet palmed away the initial shot only for a lack of Bafana Bafana defenders to clear the danger.

Paraguay take a deserved lead.

20 Nov 2018

31' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!

20 Nov 2018

28' Mothiba and Tau fail to put ball in the back of the net as Paraguay fail to clear the danger.

20 Nov 2018

25' CHANCE! Tau finds himself in space just outside the penalty area and looks up and pulls the trigger but his effort is weak as Silva makes an easy save.

20 Nov 2018

18' CHANCE! Almiron attempts to have a shot at goal from just outside of the box but it lacks the power required to trouble Keet as he saves easily.

20 Nov 2018

15' CHANCE! Oh dear, Paraguay beat the offside trap and Santander runs onto with Keet charging out, the player releases a soft shot which hits the post before the Bafana Bafana defence clear the danger.

20 Nov 2018

11' Bafana Bafana finally seeing more of the ball now as both sides looking to get used to the wet conditions at the Moses Mabhida.

20 Nov 2018

7' TAU! The pacey forward skips past a defender only to be brought down by Gonzales, who will be well aware of the danger of the former Mamelodi Sundowns player. 

20 Nov 2018

5' Paraguay look dangerous in attack and show their mantle in midfield. Big challenge for Mabunda and Mokoena in the middle of the park.

20 Nov 2018

3' As expected a nervy start from South Africa with so many different names in the starting XI. 

20 Nov 2018

1' First half is underway ...

20 Nov 2018

Paraguay XI: Silva, Valdez, Balbuena, Alderete, Alonso, Ortiz, Rojas, Gonzalez, Dominiquez, Almiron, Santander.
