The game we've been waiting for is finally here. Argentina take on Brazil today, November 16, on Matchday 14 of the South American 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. These lifelong rivals meet for the first time after the infamous episode in September. The hosts, who will play with Lionel Messi from the start, will try to get a new win against their archrivals after the 2021 Copa America success, while Tite's side will play without its star Neymar. Here, check out everything there is to know about this exciting game, such as the preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch it in the US.
La Verde-amarela may have clinched a Qatar 2022 berth, but this game won't be meaningless for them. Besides they face their arch-nemesis, Tite's men will be seeking revenge to heal the wounds of a painful 2021 Copa America final defeat a few months ago.
La Albiceleste return home in high spirits as they are one step away from sealing a place in the World Cup. Lionel Scaloni's boys know the opponents haven't lost a game in the tournament, but neither have they. If there's a team that looks capable of knocking Brazil down, it's Argentina. Who will get the upper hand this time?
