Leo Messi returned to international duty and now he is ready to skipper his country again. No doubt, it is a tremendous news for all The Albiceleste fans. Argentina are on fire right now having won 9 consecutive matches going into that final including some commanding victories when Messi was at his very best. Nevertheless they have already lost at home to Ecuador in World Cup qualifying fixture and were held at their home ground by Brazil so this game isn’t a home banker by any means as Edgardo Bauza takes charge of the Argentines for the first time. As for the team news, Sergio Aguero and Javier Pastore are both sidelined with injuries.
Meanwhile, Uruguay surprisingly were eliminated from Copa America at the group stage following losses to Mexico and Venezuela but like most of these teams, World Cup qualification remains the bigger priority. They’ve won 4 of their opening 6 games with excellent 3–0 victories over Chile and Colombia as well as an excellent 2–2 stalemate in Brazil. Barcelona ace Luiz Suarez will lead the attacking line with PSG striker Edinson Cavani in support and they will fancy they can cause Argentina plenty of damage here with their opponents still doing a fair bit of soul-searching after that notorious defeat to Chile in a game they were expecting to win and finally end their major trophy draught.
