Drawing : "World 2022: Video summary - aggression but no spectacle between Brazil and Argentina!  (0-0)"

Although Neymar, last minute injured, could not play this meeting, many were the stars present on the lawn of the Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Libe in Buenos Aires. Ligue 1 was particularly well represented by the presence of Messi, Di Maria, Marquinhos, Lucas Paquetá or even Parades. Despite these talented players, the show struggles to get started. The start of the match is very shy from either side. The two formations purr while and the intensity is not at the rendezvous. You have to wait until the quarter of an hour of play to witness the first chance of the game. It is to the credit of the Brazilians who, through Vinicius Junior, are showing themselves to be dangerous.

In the wake of this opportunity, Matheus Cunha comes close to scoring one of the goals of the year. Unfortunately for the Seleção, his strike from the midfield goes just over Martinez’s crossbar. In line with his disappointing performance against Uruguay despite a 1-0 success, Argentina displays a cruel lack of offensive inspiration. Albiceleste struck for the first time on goals in the 27th minute. A distant attempt by Messi which testifies to Argentina’s impotence in this first period. Only De Paul stands out for his omnipresence in the field. The Atlético de Madrid midfielder is dangerous on a long shot 5 minutes from the break. The more the minutes go by, the more the situation is similar for Brazil, which has not shown the extent of its capacities in this first act. Another face is expected upon return from the locker room by these two South American football monsters.

The yellow cards are linked!

From the start of the second period, Brazil is truly weaned from the ball. Argentina won 80% possession of the ball in their favor within 5 minutes of returning from the locker room. Despite this Argentine domination, the Seleção comes close to opening the scoring in this part. Fred finds the crossbar on a distant attempt at the hour mark. Apart from this huge opportunity, no opportunity is to be put in their mouths. 20 minutes from the final whistle, the two teams have scored only one strike each. On the other hand, faults multiply at breakneck speed. If the show is not there, the aggressiveness is present, and unfortunately, a little too much … At the end of the meeting, there are 7 yellow cards distributed. The match ended with a 0-0 parity score.

With this sharing of points, Brazil and Argentina maintain immaculate loss records in this phase of qualification for the 2022 World Cup. The Brazilians remain in first place in the standings with a total of 35 units. They are ahead of the Argentines by 7 lengths. The Albiceleste is only 6 points ahead of Ecuador, 3rd, who fell from Chile earlier in the evening.

The two nations still have 4 matches to play in this qualifying phase. On the next matchday at the end of January 2022, Brazil will face Ecuador while Argentina will meet Chile.

The video summary of the game will be available in a few minutes.
