Colombia travel to Argentina for a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night.

Having failed to win any of their four previous qualifiers, Argentina find themselves in a crisis.

Edgardo Bauza’s side suffered the ultimate himilation on Thursday night, losing 3-0 to rivals Brazil.

The result leaves Argentina 6th in the CONMEBOL standings, outside the qualifying positions and eight points behind leaders Brazil.

Colombia, meanwhile, are 3rd in the table following their 0-0 draw with Chile on Thursday.

The two sides met earlier in qualification, with Argentina winning the fixture 1-0 almost exactly a year ago.

Team news

Edgardo Bauza may opt to make a number of changes following Argentina’s 3-0 defeat.

Man City striker Sergio Aguero could return to the side after missing out against Brazil.

Ramiro Funes Mori is likely to get the nod ahead of Martin Demichelis to partner Nicolas Otamendi in defence.

Enzo Perez and Angel Di Maria are expected to occupy the wide positions.

Having been brought on against Chile, winger Luis Muriel and striker Radamel Falcao could start the match for Colombia.

Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez will captain the side and play in behind the striker, while Arsenal’s David Ospina will keep goal.
