{{{Crackstreams}} Argentina vs Paraguay LIVE Broadcast Free ON Tv 12 October 2023

Argentina continue their start to CONMEBOL 2026 World Cup qualifying with a home date against Paraguay, the first of two qualifiers for the world champions in this international break. Argentina World Cup qualifier vs. Paraguay: Live stream and TV info, Lionel Messi status


Lionel Messi is with the Argentine national team ahead of two 2026 World Cup qualifying matches in the next week.

But will Messi, the 2022 World Cup champion and seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, play for his home country in these upcoming matches?

The burning question lingers again for Messi, who has been limited in action for Inter Miami CF in Major League Soccer play since his last stint with Argentina last month.

It’s unclear if Messi will start or come off the bench in limited fashion when Argentina hosts Paraguay in Buenos Aires on Thursday night.

Argentina enters the game against Paraguay having won its previous two 2026 World Cup qualifiers - 1-0 over Ecuador and 3-0 over Bolivia. Paraguay enters the CONMEBOL qualifier against Argentina with one draw (vs. Peru) and a loss (vs. Venezuela). Paraguay last qualified for the World Cup in 2010.

What did Argentina’s coach say about Lionel Messi?

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni told reporters Wednesday Messi’s comfort will be assessed before he plays in either of Argentina’s two upcoming games.

After the Paraguay match, Argentina will face Peru in Lima on next Tuesday.

“For him, one more training session is important and I will talk to him to decide whether he plays or not, but I have to talk to him first and above all I have to be sure that he can start,” Scaloni told reporters.

“We have another game in four days against Peru and it is not so easy to define if he is available, the important thing is that he feels comfortable. What leaves us calm is that if he is not fit, whoever replaces him will do just as well.”

When is Argentina's World Cup qualifier against Paraguay?

Argentina will play Paraguay on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. ET at Estadio Monumental in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Messi was one of three MLS players — including one of his Inter Miami teammates — named to Argentina squad for World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru.

Goalkeepers (3): Emiliano Martínez (Aston Villa/England), Franco Armani (River Plate), Juan Musso (Atalanta/Italy)

Defenders (12): Walter Benítez (PSV Eindhoven/Netherlands), Juan Foyth (Villarreal/Spain), Gonzalo Montiel (Nottingham Forest/England), Nahuel Molina (Atletico Madrid/Spain), Germán Pezzella (Real Betis/Spain), Cristian Romero (Tottenham/England), Lucas Martínez Quarta (Fiorentina/Italy), Nicolás Otamendi (Benfica/Spain), Marco Pellegrino (AC Milan/Italy), Marcos Acuña (Sporting Lisbon/Portugal), Nicolás Tagliafico (Lyon/France), Lucas Esquivel (Athletico Paranaense/Brazil)

Midfielders (10): Leandro Paredes (Roma/Italy), Guido Rodríguez (Real Betis/Spain), Enzo Fernández (Chelsea/England), Rodrigo de Paul (Atletico Madrid/Spain), Exequiel Palacios (Bayer Leverkusen/Germany), Carlos Alcaraz (Southampton/England), Giovani Lo Celso (Tottenham/England), Alexis Mac Allister (Liverpool/England), Thiago Almada (Atlanta United/USA), Bruno Zapelli (Athletico Paranaense/Brazil)

Forwards (9): Paulo Dybala (Roma/Italy), Lionel Messi (Inter Miami/USA), Julián Alvarez (Manchester City/England), Lautaro Martínez (Inter Milan/Italy), Facundo Farías (Inter Miami/USA), Lucas Beltrán (Fiorentina/Italy), Alejandro Garnacho (Manchester United/England), Nico González (Fiorentina/Italy), Lucas Ocampos (Sevilla/Spain)

World Cup qualifying is underway as Paraguay are the latest team to try and stop Argentina's unbeaten run under Lionel Scaloni. Despite Lionel Messi returning to play for Inter Miami, he may still be a doubt as he's missed time due to fatigue and a knock but was able to return ahead of the Herons' most recent game against FC Cincinnati last weekend, where he came off the bench. Not having started a game since mid-September, fitness may still be a concern as the game kicks off.

In his press conference, Scaloni wasn't super confident about Messi's availability despite his return to the lineup for Inter Miami.

"For him, one more training session is important, and I will talk to him to decide whether he plays or not, but I have to talk to him first, and above all I have to be sure that he can start," Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni said.

If Messi can't go, the attacking load will be on Julian Alvarez who has been at the center of everything for Manchester City. Add that in with Argentina's defense and they'll still be hard to beat.

He is helping to usher in a youth movement up front for Argentina, with Julian Alvarez and Alejandro Garnacho considered the future of the forward line. With Angel Di Maria not fit for duty this month, that will be even more in the spotlight here and in the follow-up in Peru.

Paraguay were not close to qualifying for the last World Cup, unable to reach a FIFA tournament since 2010. However, with the 2026 World Cup field — and by extension, qualifying across all federations — expanding this cycle, Los Guaranies will consider themselves real contenders for a spot and thus points will be at a premium in every match.
