The result ensures that with one round of group games still to play, Paraguay qualify from Group A along with Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Bolivia, who lost 2-0 to Uruguay earlier on Thursday, are eliminated.

Braian Samudio gave Paraguay the lead after 33 minutes after heading in a corner from Almiron, who then completed the scoring with a penalty 13 minutes into the second half.
