Argentina vs Uruguay: prediction for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier match
The Albiceleste are not as comfortable in the second place as before the last round. Argentina are eight points behind Brazil, while Ecuador and Uruguay are getting closer to them.
In the previous qualifying game, Argentina traveled to Paraguay. Lionel Messi and his teammates acted beautifully on the offensive and had a large number of scoring chances, and in general Argentina controlled the game. However, they failed to score a single goal (0:0). Now Lionel Scaloni's charges are back in Buenos Aires and play host to Uruguay.
Uruguay are on an unbeaten streak and climbed up to 4th place in the table. The team has a good understanding of how important every point is at this time. If they win, they can catch up with Argentina, but if they lose, they might be out of the Top 4.
In the last round, Uruguay played against Colombia at home. This match was quite exciting but also ended in a goalless draw. Now Uruguay have an opportunity to prove themselves in the battle against the Argentines, which will be a rather difficult challenge.
Both teams scored only in 1 out of 5 head-to-head games.
In the last 5 head-to-head games, Argentina scored under 2 goals.
This is the most common result in the head-to-head.
Both teams are in great shape, but bookmakers do not believe in the success of Uruguay. Oscar Tabares' charges have a bad away record against Argentina. The Albiceleste have won six previous home matches. Messi and his teammates will try to seize the initiative from the start of the game and we expect them to get a win here.
Our prediction - Argentina to win
