Argentina vs Uruguay Live: World Cup Qualifiers LIVE – ARG vs URU LIVE – Argentina will look to extend their 100% win record in the World Cup qualifiers campaign against Uruguay. La Albicelestes are at the top of their 10-nation teams’ table after having won all of their matches in the campaign. Their opponents La Celestes are 5 points behind them in 2nd place. Uruguay will try to hold on to their position in the table to automatically qualify. On the other hand, Argentina will look to extend their point gap at the top. 

Argentina are now approaching this match on the back of a 14-match winning streak in all competitions. After their World Cup final win against France, Argentina have won 8 matches so far. They’ve defeated Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, and Paraguay in their last 4 World Cup qualifiers.

However, they will play their toughest matches since their final win this month. After their match against Uruguay, they will face Brazil. La Albicelestes will have the odds in their favour after winning all of their last 3 matches against La Celestes.

Uruguay have managed to lose 1, draw 1, and win 2 matches in the campaign. They are sitting in 2nd place in the table, 5 points behind Las Albicelestes. Their biggest concern is, they are on level with Brazil and Venezuela with 7 points and are only 3 points ahead of 8th-placed Chile. 

Hence, they cannot afford to lose points at this moment. However, the last time they won against Argentina was back in October 2013. The last time they won against La Albicelestes in Argentina was back in July 1987.

Argentina Team News

  • Coach Lionel Scaloni has called up the left-back from Olympiacos and the right-back from Mallorca Pablo Maffeo for the first time in their career. Both of the defenders could be making their debut in the match in some capacity.
  • It’s only been 2 weeks since Lionel Messi won his record 8th Ballon d’Or. He will be expected to continue in the final third where Nicolas Gonzalez and Julian Alvarez could join him. On the other side of the field, this year’s Yashin Trophy winner goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez will be expected to feature for his 35th match for Argentina under the bars. 
  • Cristian Romero and Nicolas Otamendi should be starting at the centre of defense. The coach has been seen to prefer Rodrigo De Paul, Alexis Mac Allister, and Enzo Fernandez in the midfield. Hence, the trio should start again in this match.

Uruguay Team News

  • Uruguay coach Marcelo Bielsa could want to line up the same team that won against Brazil for the first time in 22 years. That will see Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo hooking the defense line along with Mathias Olivera, Sebastian Caceres, and Nathian Nandez. 
  • PSG midfielder Manuel Ugarte and Real Madrid midfield Federico Valverde should be expected to start in the central midfield. This could see Matias Vecino sit out the match to make way for them. Additionally, Nicolas de la Cruz from River Plate should start at the no. 10 position.
  • Edinson Cavani sustained a muscle issue which will see him miss both matches this month for Uruguay. However, for the first time since the World Cup last year, their all-time leading scorer Luis Suarez will return to the squad. The 36-year-old striker will feature against former teammate and friend Lionel Messi either by replacing or alongside Nunez in the final third.
