Argentina v Uruguay Live Commentary & Result, 10/10/2021, WC Qualification South America | Goal.com

5′ Messi’s turn of pace gets him free on the left wing but a lovely cross is left unmet by both Tagliafico and Paredes – both of whom thought the other should be at the end of the delivery.

3′ Argentina have spent the opening three minutes in their own half, knocking it around from left to right as they look for an early opening in Uruguay’s midfield.

1′ Argentina get the match underway from the kick-off!

Uruguay make three changes from their starting line-up that earned a 0-0 draw with Colombia three days ago. Coates and Araujo earn places in the back four ahead of Gimenez and De Arrascaeta – which pushes Vina up the pitch into the left wing. The final switch is in central midfield, where River Plate’s De La Cruz get the nod ahead of Juventus’ Rodrigo Bentancur.

Argentina make three changes from the XI that drew 0-0 with Paraguay last time out. Tagliafico reprises his role at left-back displacing Marcos Acuna, while Nicolas Gonzalez and Lautaro Martinez replace Di Maria and Joaquin Correa in attack.

URUGUAY SUBS: Martin Campana, Sergio Rochet, Joaquin Piquerez, Giovanni Gonzalez, Martin Caceres, Fernando Gorriaran, Lucas Torreira, Agustin Alvarez, Gaston Pereiro, Darwin Nunez, Facundo Torres, Edinson Cavani.

URUGUAY XI (4-4-2): Fernando Muslera; Found Nandez, Diego Godin, Sebastian Coates, Ronald Araujo; Matias Vecino, Nicolas De La Cruz, Federico Valverde, Matias Vina; Luis Suarez, Brian Rodriguez.

ARGENTINA SUBS: Franco Armani, Juan Musso, Facundo Medina, Gonzalo Montiel, German Pezzella, Angel Di Maria, Exequiel Palacios, Joaquin Correa, Alejandro Gomez, Guido Rodriguez, Julian Alvarez, Angel Correa.

With 15 minutes to go before kick-off, let’s take a look at how the two sides are lining up – starting with our hosts!

A 0-0 draw with Colombia three days ago arrested a run of two victories on the bounce for Uruguay, who have now drawn as many matches as they’ve won in CONMEBOL qualifying (four). The experienced Oscar Tabarez has successfully reached the World Cup proper three times in his second stint as national coach, reaching the tournament at every possible opportunity since he took over the side in the aftermath of their failed 2006 campaign.

Second-place Argentina are looking to close the gap with Brazil after the latter’s draw earlier today, which extended the lead at the top of the table to nine points. The Albiceleste have won two and drawn two in their last four matches, including two clean sheets. It hasn’t been smooth sailing for Lionel Scaloni’s side against their opponents today however, with Argentina managing three wins in their last six matches against Uruguay – all with a 1-0 score.
