Midfielder Javier Martinez injured an ankle in training so may miss out on a place on the bench.
Paraguay may opt to restore Victor Caceres to the team after he missed the match with Japan through suspension. If he does play, he is expected to take the place of Nestor Ortigoza.
Aureliano Torres has recovered from a minor calf strain.
