Uruguay vs Argentina: Uruguay will take on second-placed Argentina in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers fixture on the 13th of November.
Uruguay vs Argentina: Preview
Uruguay have struggled to produce victories in the recent past, despite having world-class players at their disposal. They are winless in their last three matches and look a pale shadow of the past side. Uruguay are in desperate need of points to secure their qualification into the World Cup next year, as they currently sit on the 5th spot, and if it exists they would have to go through the play-offs round. They have won just 4 of their first 12 matches while drawing and losing 4 each.
Argentina finally looked to have found their mojo, and have started to produce the results which were always expected of them. On an all-time high after winning Copa America this year, they are one of the best international sides in the world currently under Lionel Scaloni. The Albiceleste will also be buoyed by the return of Lionel Messi who is all set to play for them, after returning from a muscle injury, while on club duties. Argentina are almost assured of qualification into the next world cup as they currently sit 2nd in the table behind Brazil with 25 points from 11 matches.
