Brazil vs Argentina prediction, In this summer's Copa America final rematch, Brazil and Argentina will face off on Monday 6 September 2021 at 02:00 WIB in a World
The visitors secured the title with a 1-0 win in Brazil, but the hosts sit in a better position in the qualifying group with a perfect record from their seven games.
Brazil were knocked out of the 2018 World Cup in the quarter-finals, as they suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of Belgium, and they will be keen to return in style next year.
The Selecao bounced back by winning the Copa America the following year, beating Peru 3-1 in the final, before they began a new World Cup Qualification campaign with back-to-back wins over Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela, Uruguay, Ecuador and Paraguay.
That took them into this year's Copa America tournament, and Tite's men looked relatively strong throughout the game, battling their way into the final with hard-fought wins over Chile and Peru, only to fall short at home against Sunday's opponents in the final.
In their first competitive game since that defeat, Brazil picked up a seventh straight World Cup Qualifier win on Friday, as Everton Ribeiro scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 away win over Chile.
They will now look to extend that to eight wins in a row and take revenge on their main rivals for the Copa America defeat, when they welcome Lionel Scaloni's men to Sao Paulo.
After drawing against Chile in their opening match, Argentina kicked off in the Copa America, finishing the group stage with wins over Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia to top the group and book a quarter-final clash with Ecuador.
Rodrigo De Paul, Lautaro Martinez and Lionel Messi all scored in a 3-0 win in the game, before heroic action from Emiliano Martinez earned them a penalty shootout win after drawing 1-1 with Colombia in the semi-finals.
It saw them meet rivals Brazil in the final, and La Albiceleste stood strong to maintain a 1-0 lead throughout the game after Angel Di Maria's early opener to earn their 15th Copa America title.
After winning three and drawing three of their opening six World Cup Qualifiers, Scaloni's side returned to action with a 3-1 away win over Venezuela on Friday.
While it took La Albiceleste moments to find the net, Lautaro Martinez finally put them ahead just before halftime, and Joaquin Correa and Angel Correa scored in the second half to put them in a comfortable position before Yeferson Soteldo scored a consolation from the penalty spot for their opponents. far into injury time.
After the disappointment of being knocked out in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup, they will look to strengthen their position to reach next year's tournament, with a chance to reduce the gap between them and Brazil to just three points with a win.
Brazil's squad have been hit by the Premier League's decision not to release players for international matches in COVID-19 red-list countries, meaning the likes of Thiago Silva, Fabinho, Gabriel Jesus and Richarlison cannot travel alongside goalkeepers Ederson and Alisson Becker. .
Under those circumstances, Tite fielded a relatively full force on Friday, with talisman Neymar leading the line alongside Flamengo forward Gabriel Barbosa.
Everton's Ribeiro will be looking for a starting spot, after he came off the bench to score the winner in the game, while Hulk and Matheus Cunha also knocked on the door.
In the absence of their two front-line goalkeepers, the Selecao will again put Weverton in between the bars, behind the excellent centre-back pairing of Eder Militao and Marquinhos.
Dark Mode
Argentina were fortunate to welcome their Premier League players to camp, with first-choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez arriving from Aston Villa alongside Emiliano Buendia, while Tottenham Hotspur duo Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso arrived to challenge in defense and midfield respectively. .
While Lo Celso thrived in a midfield trio with new Atletico Madrid star Rodrigo De Paul and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes in the Copa America, the latter did not make the matchday squad against Venezuela, despite flying to South America, and he could again miss the day. Sunday.
Having recently rejoined the squad, Juventus star Paulo Dybala will be keen for a starting spot, although Angel Di Maria, Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez have formed a relatively established front three.
