Competition: WC Qual, CONMEBOL

Betting prediction: Colombia 1-2 Argentina

Argentina have yet to taste defeat in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying (3-2-0) but despite their immense quality up front and in the center of the park, still struggle for goals almost unbelievably. Despite that, their quality should prove enough to see themselves past a Colombia that is lacking their key attacking pieces. A close win for La Albiceleste could be on the cards here.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Argentina – Yes

Despite being away from home, Argentina remain favorites for their clash with Colombia in Barranquilla but their struggle for goals of late (7-goals in five matches) means they may have similar issues here. Argentina’s hit and miss performances at the back could mean that Colombia find their way amongst the goals, but that may not prove enough to net a result for the home side.

To Score First: Lautaro Martinez

With a strike rate of a goal every other game for Argentina, Inter’s Lautaro Martinez should be considered a real goal threat during proceedings. His goal return has rung true to the mathematics of late, scoring twice in his sides last four World Cup qualifying fixtures, finding the net against Peru and Bolivia, and with both goals coming away from home. The attention will always be on Lionel Messi, but Martinez is quickly becoming an excellent secondary goal scorer (11-goals in 22-appearances).

Colombia vs Argentina: Match preview

Colombia come into their home tie against Argentina on the back of their 3-0 win against Peru. It was a three-point haul that steadied the ship – at least temporarily – after La Tricolor suffered two heavy defeats in succession; a 6-1 demolition by Ecuador, and a 3-0 loss to Uruguay.

It will be a difficult task at hand for boss Reinaldo Rueda, who will be without some key performers against an Argentine outfit that can field its biggest names as they look to track down Brazil for top spot in qualifying.

No James Rodriguez means the task of creating chances for Atalanta duo Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata will fall on the shoulders of Juan Cuadrado, whose willingness to be direct may be able to carve open a historically questionable Argentine backline. Three points would see Colombia sit just one point behind their opposition, and depending on results, could wedge a gap between themselves and the bottom half of the table.

Messi-Martinez duopoly continues to perform for Argentina

With Sergio Aguero no longer guaranteed to start for Argentina, Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez have begun to form a decent partnership under Lionel Scaloni. The pair have combined to score in four of Argentina’s last five qualifying fixtures, both hitting two goals in that period.

Martinez continues to make a name for himself at club level for Serie A winners Internazionale, and his goal rate in Italy has roughly translated over to the national team, averaging .50 goals/match in the famous light blue and white stripped kits.

Rodrigo De Paul’s ascendancy into the national team fold should also take some creative responsibility away from Messi as well, and though the Udinese midfielder has yet to open up his account for his country, his technical quality on the ball and ability to drive play through the center of the park should mean that Messi may no longer have to regularly drop deeper during build-up play and can more readily affect proceedings in the opposition final third.

As always, Argentina are blessed with a wealth of talent across all areas of the pitch, but their struggles to bring it all together has shown in their relatively low goal tally in qualifying thus far.


 

Colombia team news vs Argentina

Colombia manager Reinaldo Rueda will have hoped for a better time to clash with Argentina, as La Tricolor find themselves bereft of quite a few key assets.

Radamel Falcao, James Rodriguez, Alfredo Morelos, Juan Fernando Quintero, and Santiago Arias are all missing either through injury or after testing positive for Covid-19.

After two heavy defeats in recent qualifying fixtures, Rueda will be hoping to upset the apple cart against a strong Argentine outfit.

Argentina team news vs Colombia

Lionel Scaloni will be pleased to have the bulk of his attacking option is available to him as Argentina look to put in a more consummate performance against a weakened Colombia.

Paulo Dybala, Nicolas Gonzalez, and Lucas Alario all miss out through injury, with Renzo Saravia missing out for the same reason. Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Lautaro Martinez, and Angel Di Maria are all fit and available for selection.
