Argentina is struggling to secure an automatic qualifying spot for the World Cup and thats due to the lack good result away from home. Uruguay is also in the same situation as the Argies and a win over the Deigo Maradona’s men will make sure they aviod the playoff match against a team in the North American region.
Uruguay won their match against Ecuador last weekend with a late winner from Deigo Forlan. They went behind 1-0 Uruguay is currently 5th in the tables with 24 points. They are looking to qualify for world cup via. automatic sport rather than the playoff spot they currently occupy. A home win against the Argies will take them straight to the World Cup with 27 point finsihing in fourth place. Deigo Forlan and L. Suarez will be the key players to get Uruguay to the World Cup without playing the playoffs.
Argentina’s hope of another World Cup nearly dashed away if it wasn’t for Martin Palermo’s late winner home against Peru. That goal was vital as Argentina have their destiny in their hands as a draw or win against Urugary is enough to secure a safe passage to the World Cup. A defeat could mean that Argentina will miss a World Cup for the first time in 30 years, a record that Deigo Maradona would not want to be remembered by. Maradona will have a strong squad travelling to Urugary but will that be enough to keep their world cup campiagn alive?
This is the absolutely the last chance for Maradona to show the country what he can do as a coach. He has been on a lot of criticism of the late but one win or draw could ease the pressure. Argentina have not able to gel and their tactics looks a bit scrappy at times. If a draw is enough to take them through then that might be just what will happen, Betsson is offering 3.00 for a draw.
