Uruguay – Argentina Preview

  • The decorated 15-year managerial stint of Uruguay manager Óscar Tabárez, a man who led his side to the last-16 for three consecutive FIFA World Cup Finals, is reportedly on the brink as the two-time world champions risk missing out on qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. A three-match winless World Cup Qualification (WCQ) run where they were outscored 7-1 leaves ‘La Celeste’ hanging onto the inter-confederation play-off place as the pressure continues to increase as they grapple with a lengthy injury list.
  • Little relief for Tabárez or his team is likely to come in this Clásico del Río de la Plata match up against Argentina as Uruguay haven’t defeated their great rivals in eight years (D2, L4), failing to score in five of those games, including a 3-0 reverse loss. The positives come from their home record though, as Uruguay have won 69% of their WCQ points in home matches this campaign, whilst even their home record against Argentina this century (W2, D2, L1) offers hope for the beleaguered hosts who need an inspirational underdog victory.
  • Despite uncertainty over talisman Lionel Messi’s availability, the visiting Copa América champions will look to extend their 25-match two-year unbeaten run, which includes 11 CONMEBOL qualifiers from this cycle. Although they are nearly guaranteed a finals spot, ‘La Albiceleste’ still harbour hopes of topping the qualifying group ahead of rivals Brazil, which will see them battle hard for a win here.
  • In more bad news for Uruguay fans, the visitors remain unbeaten in WCQs since March 2017 (W8, D7) and haven’t conceded for four games in-a-row. With a seven-game unbeaten WCQ away record (W4, D3) to keep intact, Lionel Scaloni’s men will be gunning for another victory in this clash.
  • Players to watch: Luis Suárez scored Uruguay’s only goal across their last three matches and had a goal and assist during his latest club appearances. Argentina are likely to pin their hopes on Lautaro Martínez, who scored their last goal in the reverse fixture and has an unbeaten H2H record (W2, D1).
  • Hot stat: Argentina haven’t conceded before half-time in 13 straight games.
