Argentina has been a bit disappointing in these CONMEBOL qualifiers currently fifth with 23 points. The latest result from La Albiceleste was a hard-fought scoreless draw against Uruguay away from home but this should be a much more comfortable game for Argentina, especially with the home-field advantage. Jorge Sampaoli’s side is in fifth place but is only two points back of second-place Colombia and the three points from this game are essential for staying competitive with the other top teams in the region.
Venezuela has been bullied by most other teams in these CONMEBOL qualifiers and is now eliminated from World Cup qualifying contention, dead last with only seven points. La Vinotinta had a surprising scoreless draw against Colombia in its last match and could use the momentum from that result to complicate things for the Argentines. The last time the two teams played, the game was an exciting 2-2 draw and this game should be a bit different as Argentina should win it comfortably, especially at home.
