Argentina vs Brazil: Messi plays, schedule, kick-off time, how to watch – Marca English

San Juan Bicentenario Stadium is where Argentina plays Brazil
A major confrontation between Argentina and Brazil is coming on Tuesday afternoon for the World Cup Qualifiers in San Juan Bicentenario Stadium. The ‘Albiceleste’ is facing the ‘Canarinha’ with basically no pressure for qualifying for neither side is having trouble to reach the World Cup. Anything that happens in his game will matter very little to the rest of the squads in Conmebol. All either side cares about is winning the match in order to possibly claim the top spot of the area but first, we need to explain their special situation.
Back in September 5, the Brazil vs Argentina match was suspended after Brazilian health officials invaded the pitch due to COVID-19 protocol violations. Argentine players who traveled from England weren’t allowed to be on the pitch and the match was suspended five minutes after kick-off. It was a shameful spectacle for both sides but the result is still inconclusive. Both national teams are attempting to win the three points in meetings with Conmebol officials. Whoever wins this game will either confirm their dominance in the area of claim a new top spot, hence tomorrow’s game being so important.
Brazil is currently at the top of the table with 34 points against Argentina’s 28 points, the ‘Albiceleste‘ will get their ticket to the World Cup if they win tomorrow at home. However, getting the three points from that suspended game will algo get them tied with Brazil at 34 points. Despite this, Argentina would still remain in second place due to the goal difference. This game is taking place on Tuesday November 16 at 17:30 CT and it’s airing on FuboTV in the US. It had the potential to bring us the latest confrontation between Messi and Neymar. But the Brazilian was just announced to miss the game due to a recent injury. He didn’t even make the trip to Argentina with the squad.
Neymar had been leading the Brazil National Team throughout the entire World Cup Qualifiers, just like Messi. Leo, however, was saved by manager Lionel Scaloni during Argentina’s latest match against Uruguay. His side won with a Di Maria goal and got even closer to the World Cup. On Tuesday, the Argentine star will be rested while his friend misses one of the most important games of the qualifiers. Winning for Leo means his team will get that direct ticket to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
