World Cup – Qualification: Brazil vs Argentina

Brazil vs Argentina Betting Tip and Predictions. In the the qualifying round for the World Cup 2018, in South American group, Brazil host Argentina in Belo Horizonte. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Brazil vs Argentina.


Brazil started the qualification for the FIFA World Cup 2018 very good and after 10 rounds they are standing at the top of the table. Home side is one of the main favorites to finish in the Top 4 and qualify directly on the World Championship, so it would be a big surprise if they fail. The match against big rivals Argentina is more than a football match, so Brazil will be fully motivated to beat them and cement first position in the South American group. They are in the great form with 4 consecutive wins and in all those 4 games they conceded one single goal, while on the other side they scored 12 goals. The first match between Argentina vs Brazil in these qualifications was finished without winner (1-1) and that result would satisfied both sides, but this is very important for game for both sides and they both will be fully motivated to win this game. Neymar could be the most dangerous player for Argentina’s defence, but Coutinho play amazing this season for Liverpool and he could even more dangerous.

Argentina play very poor in these qualifications and they have to improve their performance and start winning. It would be a big surprise if they fail to qualify on World Cup 2018, but there are many matches left until the end, so it’s early to talk about their elimination. Visitors failed to win in the last three games and they desperately need points. The match against Brazil maybe isn’t the right moment to think about victory, but they have quality players and they believe they can do it. Leo Messi play amazing this season for FC Barcelona and he need one moment to convert it in goal. Argentina is standing at the 6th position, but with victory against big rivals they could move up at the 3rd position. Their main goal will be to secure their net and try to score as soon as possible. Higuain is amazing in the attack this season and alongside Messi, they both could cause many problems to home defenders.
