Brazil vs Argentina Match Preview and Insights
Brazil and Argentina will be gearing up for a key encounter in the World Cup qualifiers for the South American nations. The last meeting between the two teams was in November 2019 for a friendly, which has occupied the bulk of recent meetings between Brazil and Argentina. The Copa America semi-final in 2019 was the last competitive game between the two national teams.
Among the many international rivalries that exist in football, the game between Brazil and Argentina is seen as one of the pinnacles. The two South American teams have been extremely successful at various levels. Both national teams have also been able to boast some of the greatest players in the world has ever seen. The Brazil- Argentina rivalry has grown a lot in the last decades due to factors like close proximity in location, successes achieved in football, and the rivalry between top players from each country. Many of the recent meetings between the two national teams have taken place at neutral venues.
There have been more than 100 meetings between Brazil and Argentina. The first meeting between the two national teams took place in 1914. Brazil leads the way with over 35 wins while Argentina are not far behind with around the same figure. Even though the overall statistics reveal that there is not much to differentiate the two national teams, Brazil have enjoyed better results in recent years. Argentina have been restricted to only a handful of wins in the last decade.
Brazil have been flying high in the World Cup qualification group from South America. The team has picked up wins from all four matches that they have played. A remarkable sign of strength is the team conceding just two goals in these four matches. Even though Brazil continue to rely heavily on Neymar for creativity and goals, Tite has been able to get the team scoring even without the PSG superstar. The likes of Everton forward Richarlison and Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino have come to Brazil’s rescue on a couple of occasions already. At the back, Brazil continue to fly high with the experience of Thiago Silva guiding the team.
Argentina started the qualification group in a positive fashion after the win over Ecuador. However, the draw with Paraguay has once again highlighted the problems within the team. So far, Argentina have had an easy run but they will now enter into a run of games that will see them take on Uruguay and Brazil in back-to-back games before playing against Chile and Colombia in June. The national team continues to be heavily reliant on Lionel Messi, but the Barcelona superstar seems to be on the decline given his reduced return of goals in recent games.
