The pause button has been hit on domestic football and in its place, we’ve got the return of the international break. It’s the final one of the year but it’s certainly important as the road to next year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar continues.

Today, we’re going to take a look at what should be an enticing clash between old rivals Uruguay and Argentina in CONMEBOL qualifying.

Uruguay

Uruguay always seem to take up the role of the bridesmaid but with their iconic squad slowly starting to age, you’d have to think they’ll be dying to make one last push for World Cup glory. They came close all the way back in 2010 by making it to the semi-finals and this time around, if they can edge past a tough run in qualifying, they should back themselves to do well in Qatar.

Argentina

Argentina were finally able to call themselves Copa America champions once again earlier this year with Lionel Messi realising a dream he’d had for quite some time. Now, based on what they’ve achieved so far in qualifying, something tells us they’re ready for a big surge at next year’s World Cup. They’ve got the squad, they’ve got the hunger, and they look better than they have done in a long time.

Factors to Consider

  • Argentina are 2nd in CONMEBOL qualifying whereas Uruguay are 5th.
  • Uruguay have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Argentina have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Uruguay have scored seven goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.
  • Argentina have scored 11 goals and conceded one in their last six games.

Conclusion

While Uruguay have certain weapons at their disposal that could cause their opponents problems, Argentina simply do not concede many goals. They’ve been able to strike a nice balance between defensive stability and a thrilling attacking threat, and we believe that’s going to lift them above Uruguay for the second time in just over a month.
