Argentina will host Colombia at the Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario in San Juan as part of the 2018 CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying match. Here are all the things you need to know for the game including previews, TV schedule and projected lineups, as well as Argentina vs. Colombia live stream links.
Argentina vs. Colombia Preview
Argentina (4W-4D-3L, 16 points) is trying to avoid the unthinkable: missing the 2018 World Cup. La Albiceleste is coming off an embarrassing 3-0 loss against Brazil last Thursday. They currently sit sixth in the CONMEBOL standings with seven more games remaining.
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi will do all he can in trying to help his home nation earn as much points as possible. Argentina head coach Edgardo Bauza is confident that his team will make the 2018 World Cup and he wants their fans full support to make it happen.
“I’ve never questioned that we will qualify for Russia 2018 because the group is string and that gives us confidence,” Bauza explained to reporters. We have lost points that we didn’t expect to and so it’s normal for the criticism to appear,” Bauza told MARCA.
“Hopefully in San Juan people can get the importance of this shirt. We need that support,” he added.
On the other hand, Colombia (5W-3D-3L, 18 points) wants to add more points to their total and pad a lead to teams such as Ecuador, Chile and Argentina. Los Cafeteros hosted Chile last Thursday, but they only managed to hold them to a goalless draw.
