Two giants of South American football clash swords on Tuesday September 5 in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers. Three matches remain for Lionel Messi and Co. in the ongoing tournament and La Albiceleste are still unsure if they will be able to directly qualify for Russia 2018.
Argentina are currently fifth in the CONMEBOL table after having garnered 23 points from 15 games so far. The top four teams seal direct qualification. While Brazil have sealed their World Cup berth, Argentina have to battle out the likes of Colombia, Uruguay and Chile for a place in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th spot.
In case they come 5th even after the end of the qualifiers, Argentina will progress to a tricky inter-confederation playoffs stage.
Anything below that position will be disastrous for the South American football giants.
The hosts enter the match at the back of a frustrating goalless stalemate against Uruguay and reports surfaced after the match of a possible rift between Messi and national team coach Jorge Sampaoli.
The reports, however, have been quashed by Sampaoli but we know that even a draw at this point, could be detrimental to Argentina’s hopes and some real ugly dressing room battle could come out in the public.
Messi’s face has said it all in recent months with the Argentina shirt on his back. The Barcelona forward has been a picture of discontentment, unable to drive his country forward towards better days.
Argentina’s goalless draw with Uruguay in Montevideo left them in the play-off berth in fifth, but Peru, Paraguay and Ecuador are just below them, all within three points.
A victory at home could see Argentina jump up to second if results fall to their advantage.
With only three qualification games remaining, coach Jorge Sampaoli has little time to correct any issues he has identified, and despite the manager putting his faith in his attack, the Argentinians struggle to put the ball in the net.
