Brazil leads the South American World Cup qualifying standings (34 points) and has won a place in Qatar’s 2022 World Cup. Invincible Argentina (8-0-4) is likely to do the same if they can make Brazil lose its first game and the other results in Game 14 play out their own way:
- Colombia did not beat Paraguay
- OR Uruguay and Chile did not win their respective matches

Odds by DraftKings
These are the two best defensive teams in South America by a wide margin, and it’s no surprise that each has a real identity and solid organizational structure under their respective head coaches. This Brazilian team going into San Juan, for example, will not be interested in possession of the ball and it will leave Argentina up front, looking to take advantage of the first leg.
Argentina also showed a bend but couldn’t break against Uruguay in Friday’s 1-0 win. Goalkeeper Emiliano “Dibu” Martinez is in awe-inspiring form for his national team, and it’s no pity that his side have enjoyed a lucky break in the moments where he irretrievable today.
