The road to Qatar 2022 resumed this week with exciting South American World Cup Qualifiers matches. It's been a long time since the fourth round was played, as Conmebol decided to postpone the window scheduled for March.

For the first time in 2021, the ten South American nations were back on the field to keep on chasing the highly desired berth in soccer's greatest competition. It was a good opportunity for teams who had a bad start to bounce back, while the ones that have been in good form tried to pick up from where they had left off.

With the eagerly-awaited event on the horizon, the journey towards the next World Cup is warming up with some teams already taking advantage in the race for a place in it. Here, take a look at the standings and results in Conmebol World Cup Qualification.
