Brazil vs. Argentina Preview
Brazil (6W-3D-1L) is at the top of the CONMEBOL table for the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers with 21 points. The Seleção are in fine form as they have won five of their last six matches and they currently have a four-match winning streak in the qualifiers.
On the other hand, Argentina (4W-4D-2D) is in bad form without their superstar forward in Lionel Messi as they are currently in the sixth spot and are in danger of missing qualification. Los Gauchos are winless in their three matches in the tournament but they will have Messi back against Brazil on November 10.
Argentina striker Sergio Aguero is out to redeem himself after missing a penalty last month in the 1-0 loss in Paraguay. There are still eight more games to play but Argentina is looking to win all of them to at least make it in the top four.
“We must try to earn the points now and beating Brazil would give us the confidence we need. This is a great chance to earn three points and return to the top,” Aguero told ESPN FC.
