Paraguay has two classes better team than Slovenia and if they play well they can win and expect a help from Spain to qualify.

Slovenija-Paraguay
2-0

They'll play to restore their honour and for" what might have been" because of that idiot ZZ.

Paraguay are dangerous but Slovenija are well coached and well organized. I hope at least for a good flowing match.

World Cup Preview: Slovenia-Paraguay
Slovenia - Paraguay | News Archive

Paraguay's charismatic keeper Jos?Luis Chilavert (AP)
06/11/2002. BACKGROUND

It was a very disappointing World Cup for Slovenia, who are already out of contention for a qualification to the second round. Katanec's side suffered a couple of clear defeats against Spain and South Africa, and the bad mood inside the locker room is evident through the dispute between the young coach and star midfielder Zlatko Zahovic, who was sent home after the first match.

In their first two outings, Paraguay have shown an inconsistency which put them on the brink of an early elimination. Maldini's men failed to hold a 2-0 lead over South Africa and an 1-0 lead over Spain, grabbing only one point, and this will force them not only to defeat Slovenia scoring as many goals as possible, but also to hope that Spain will defeat South Africa.

POSSIBLE SCENARIOS
With Spain already qualified and Slovenia eliminated, the fight for the second place is between Paraguay and South Africa. The South Americans will advance if:

-Spain and Paraguay both win by a combined margin of more than three goals
-Spain and Paraguay both win by a combined margin of three goals and Paraguay score more goals than South Africa

If Spain and Paraguay both win by a combined margin of three goals and South Africa and Paraguay score the same number of goals, a draw will determine the second place

LATEST TEAM NEWS
Slovenia will face their final World Cup match without influential defender Aleksander Knavs, who will be sidelined with a thigh strain. The Kaiserslautern player should be replaced by Bulajic. However, coach Srecko Katanec will recover another defender, namely Marinko Galic, who missed the clash with South Africa due to a thigh injury.

As for Paraguay, the only doubt regards defender Denis Caniza, who is bothered by an injury to his right knee. If he won't manage to recover, coach Cesare Maldini will likely replace him with Juan Carlos Franco

POSSIBLE LINEUPS
SLOVENIA: Dabanovic, Bulajic, Galic, Milinovic, Karic, Pavlin, Acimovic, A.Ceh, Novak, Cimirotic, Osterc

PARAGUAY: Chilavert, Arce, Gamarra, Ayala, Caceres, Caniza, Paredes, Gavilan, Acuna, Santa Cruz, Cardozo


PLAYERS TO WATCH
Slovenia: only pride is at stake for Katanec's players, all of whom are expected to show that they didn't qualify for this final phase by chance.

Paraguay: Jos?Luis Chilavert. The charismatic goalkeeper made some huge mistakes against Spain, and the South Americans can't afford it again. His leadership is essential to Maldini's men.

PREVIOUS ENCOUNTERS
Slovenia and Paraguay will face each other for the first time in their history.

I hope for a decent showing from our boys, that they will really perform as thay can! I know we are capable of wining, so I hope for the best, but I really don't know what to ecpect! Pride is the only thing to play for, and to finish this WC on a higher note is important to us! I belive our boys will do what it takes to win, will it be enough?
