South America’s most mouth-watering national teams’ tie happens again on Thursday, November 10 at the Estadio Mineirao, Brazil. The qualifier will be more than just the world cup, with the chance to break the current record of 36 wins for each team in 102 meetings (D25) and acquire new bragging rights. And star-studded it will be, with both countries displaying their talented exports to European leagues.
The likes of Neymar, Coutinho, Marcelo and Gabriel Jesus will don the Samba colours, while Arentina have an equally impressive war chest with names like Messi, Aguero and Higuain on their team sheet.
The awesome talent of these two sides also means some big names will miss out. Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza has overlooked the likes of Carlos Tevez, Mauro Icardi and Eric Lamella. For Brazil, coach Tite will not be bringing Oscar, David Luiz, Firmino, Danilo and Hulk. Despite these absences, the clash does not lose any taste, and will be worth following from anywhere in the world.
