CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers: Argentina vs Brazil live
The Argentines will play their fiercest foe, Brazil today at 1:30 (SAST) at Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario, after the first World Cup qualifiers match against the visitors was called off due to some Argentina players reportedly breaching of some COVID-19 protocols. Following their triumph last week, Brazil have now qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Today’s match will be officiated by Uruguayan referee Andres Cunha.
Argentina will face Brazil in the World Cup qualifiers today, and they are predicted to win. Brazil have already qualified and are looking forward to making their opponents’ lives difficult. The host team are playing for a chance to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022 and will have to seek to win this game to increase thier chances.
Brazil are seeking retribution for their failure to win the Copa America which they lost to Argentina in the final. Brazil will give the host squad a rough game and will attempt to put the host team’s hopes in jeopardy. The visitors are unaffected by a win, draw, or loss today as they have already qualified.
In their last four meetings in competitive games, Argentina have won one game with Brazil winning two games and a draw. After their initial encounter in the World Cup qualifiers in September was aborted, the most recent encounter dated back to Copa America final where Argentina won 1-0.
This game will be fired up as both sides will seek to win the game. However, considering that Brazil are already qualified, they may be a bit reluctant in play which the Argentines could use to their advantage. The Argentines would also be motivated by their pursuit of World Cup qualification and so a win or draw for them could be the likely results.
Argentina XI: Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi; De Paul, Paredes, Lo Celso; Messi, Martinez, Di Maria
