High-Stakes World Cup Qualifier: Brazil vs Argentina Prediction, h2h and all you need to know.
In a highly anticipated World Cup qualifier, Brazil faces Argentina, with both teams seeking redemption after recent setbacks.
The Canarinha, currently outside the CONMEBOL’s automatic qualification spots, look to bounce back from their loss to Colombia. Injuries, including the ten-week lay-off for Vinicius Jr, pose challenges for Brazil in the post-Tite era. However, triumph over their arch-rivals could instil much-needed confidence.
Argentina, coming off a defeat to Uruguay, aims for a World Cup journey led by stalwarts Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. The last meeting on Brazilian soil two years ago was curtailed by Covid health officials, adding an extra layer of anticipation to this clash.
