Who will win Argentina vs Brazil?
These sides have met 112 times since first facing off against one another in an international friendly back in 1914. More recently, they have played only 3 draws in their last 30 meetings going back to 1995. Brazil are leading 16-11 in the head-to-head stakes in that time.
Brazil have now guaranteed World Cup qualification after their recent victory was coupled with Uruguay's defeat. With third-placed Ecuador and fourth-placed Chile playing each other this week, at least 1 will drop points, which means Argentina have a golden opportunity to consolidate second place with a good result here.
The Argentinians are unbeaten in 26 consecutive international fixtures and haven't conceded a goal in their last 5 World Cup qualifiers. Lionel Messi came off the bench and played 15 minutes last week against Uruguay, so one would imagine he'd be fit enough to start here which would be a huge boost.
Brazil have their place in the World Cup secured, but having lost their last 2 meetings with Argentina, we think they'll be determined to deny them victory this time. Although despite its rarity in this match-up, both sides splitting the points is the predicted outcome.
