With a goal from Neymar and an assist from him to Lucas Paquetá Brazil beat Paraguay 0-2 in Asunción this Tuesday for the eighth day of the South American qualifiers for the World Cup in Qatar and has a full six wins in six games.
Canarinha looks unstoppable with six points ahead of Argentina, their guard with 12, while Paraguay has four consecutive winless dates and is now sixth with seven units.
Neymar opened the scoring at the Defensores del Chaco stadium after 4 minutes with a right hand, after receiving a pass by Gabriel Jesus in the area, in which goalkeeper Anthony Silva could do nothing.
And in the agony, at 93 minutes, Neymar assisted Lucas Paquetá to put the finishing touches.
With his goal, the Paris Saint-Germain striker equaled Bolivian Marcelo Martins Moreno with five goals in the lead in the gunner standings.
Tite’s team was always in front against an Albirroja subjugated by Brazil. And so it was that at 45 + 2 Richarlison made it 0-2, which was annulled for offside by Argentine referee Patricio Loustau.
In the second half Paraguay tried to wake up, but Canarinha’s dominance with Neymar, Casemiro and Gabriel Jesus always prevailed.
On the ninth day, the Paraguayan team, led by Argentine Eduardo Berizzo, will visit Ecuador in Quito and Brazil will go to Santiago to face Chile.
