Paraguay and Qatar will meet on Sunday for their first games in Copa America 2019 at the legendary Maracana in Rio de Janeiro. The Paraguayans are two times champions in the competition, with their last triumph arriving back in 1979. This will be the first ever participation for the Arabic country in this tournament, but it will be worthy experience in one of the biggest competitions for national sides, as Qatar are the hosts of World Cup 2022.
