[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Before Brazil heads to the Confederations Cup, where it will face the USA, it hosts Paraguay Wednesday in a clash of the South American qualifying group leaders.

Brazil is coming off a 4-0 win at Uruguay, where it got goals from defenders Daniel Alves and Juan, along with Luis Fabiano and Kaka (from the penalty spot).

Luis Fabiano is suspended for Wednesday's game. Dunga's options for Robinho's partner up front are Pato Alexandre and Nilmar.

"Pato plays a bit like me," said Robinho, "but Nilmar plays more in the middle. I have played more times with Nilmar on junior teams and I am more accustomed to playing with him. But Pato is also a great player and Brazil will be well served with either."

Paraguay went into 2009 with a six-point advantage over Argentina, but it has earned only one point in its last three games and is tied on 24 points with leader Brazil.

Chile moved to within one point of the leaders with its 2-0 win at Asuncion. Argentina is fourth one point behind Chile.
