Kick-off: 2000, 05/09/2021
Stadium: Neo Quimica Arena
Argentina can follow up July’s Rio win over Brazil in the Copa America final by claiming a point in this Sao Paulo World Cup qualifier.
The Selecao have secured seven straight victories in the South America section but have been badly hit by Premier League withdrawals.
We reckon both sides may settle for a share of the spoils at 11/5 for our first Brazil vs Argentina prediction.
A Look At Brazil’s Betting Odds
Brazil must cope without top two keepers Alisson and Ederson due to England-based players having to pull out because of Covid quarantine issues.
Thiago Silva, Fred, Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus and Richarlison are absent for the same reason while Philippe Coutinho is injured.
The Selecao still managed to secure a 1-0 success in Chile to maintain their 100 per cent record, with Flamengo winger Everton Ribeiro on target.
Tite can call on some experienced stars, such as Neymar, Casemiro, Marquinho and Dani Alves, but their strength in depth will be tested over three quick fixtures.
Looking at the Brazil vs Argentina odds, we like 23/4 for a 1-1 stalemate at Neo Quimica Arena.
A Look At Argentina’s Betting Odds
Argentina claimed Copa America bragging rights thanks to Angel Di Maria’s 22nd-minute strike at the Maracana a couple of months ago.
La Albiceleste have not been as clinical during this campaign, drawing half of their first six matches.
However, a 3-1 triumph in Venezuela helped them stay unbeaten and nicely clear of the rest in second place.
Big attacking guns Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala, Lautaro Martinez and Di Maria are all available.
Other players such as Angel Correa and namesake Joaquin appear to be growing in stature.
With Cristiano Ronaldo hogging all the headlines back in Europe, Messi will be keen to remind everyone of his talents.
Let’s take 9/2 for the PSG recruit to break the deadlock to complete our Brazil vs Argentina betting tips.
Chile 0-1 BRAZIL – Ribeiro
Venezuela 1-3 ARGENTINA – Martinez, J Correa, A Correa
Head-to-head: Brazil 0-1 Argentina, Brazil 0-1 Argentina, Brazil 2-0 Argentina, Argentina 0-1 Brazil
