Two sides in contrasting form will meet later on tonight as old rivals, Argentina and Brazil meet in the Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto, in what looks like an absolute belter of a game, as Barcelona stars Lionel Messi and Neymar go head to head for their respective teams.
Brazil, the Olympic champions, currently top the standings with 21 points from 10 games. Since claiming gold in Rio, they have won all four of their games, scoring 12 goals and conceding 1.
Last month they beat Bolivia 5-0 at home and Venezuela 2-0 away.
A new side managed by Tite and built around the talents of Gabriel Jesus, scorer on two goals in his last two games, Liverpool pair Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino not to mention the young wise head of Neymar has impressed; however they face a tricky test against a side that while struggling is adept at ruffling Brazilian feathers.
Argentina currently sit 6th in the qualifying table, one place below Chile and outside the final play-off place. They have won just one of their last five games so will be looking to up their game in readiness for tonight’s clash.
Last month they lost 1-0 at home to Paraguay and drew 2-2 with Peru.
Despite having a squad that boasts the talents of Javier Mascherano, Gonzalo Higuain, Ever Banega, Angel di Maria, Sergio Aguero and Nicholas Gaitan, new manager Edgardo Bauza has struggled to, like many of his predecessors to build a team.
Lionel Messi remains the jewel in the Argentinean crown yet and his return will be a huge boost.
The Barcelona man missed Argentina’s last three qualifying matches with an injured left knee. Messi scored in a 1-0 victory over Uruguay in September in the only match he’s played under the new boss and should be be partnered up front with Gonzalo Higuain, who is prefered it seems to Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
Brazil have won 3 of the last four meetings with their last outing ending 1-1. Argentina’s last win came in a 4-3 success in 2012 when Messi scored a hat-trick.
This looks to be a decent contest with Brazil an attractive price of 11/10 to take all three points and continue their excellent form in the Group.
A squad as talented as Argentina’s should not be underestimated however, despite their recent form, and with almost 3/1 on the away win on offer with Bet365, that price is sure to attract plenty of attention from punters.
It should prove to be a match not to be missed.
Strap yourselves in.
