La Canarinha have already qualified for Qatar 2022 and Argentina are virtually assured of a place at the tournament, so the latest instalment of this fierce rivalry is more about pride than anything else.
Brazil sit top of the qualifying table having dominated the competition but a victory for Lionel Scaloni’s men in Buenos Aires would put them within three points of their northern neighbours.
Argentina vs Brazil latest odds
Since losing to Brazil in the Copa America in 2019, Argentina have gone 26 matches without defeat, the longest current unbeaten run of any international team.

Argentina vs Brazil first goalscorer
Argentina’s last three matches have seen three different players open the scoring with Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez and Angel Di Maria all breaking the deadlock, respectively.
Messi is the favourite to do so once more at 3/1 (4.00) while Martinez can be backed at 6/1 (7.00) and Di Maria at 17/2 (8.50).
For Brazil, Neymar has been ruled out of the game due to injury, while Gabriel Jesus is 5/1 (6.00) to score first.
Argentina vs Brazil preview
Both sides come into the game in extraordinary defensive form with Argentina having kept five consecutive clean sheets and Brazil letting in just four goals in 12 World Cup qualifiers.
Backing a game with few goals should appeal once more and this fixture usually produces hard-fought and tight games.
Four of the last five games have been settled by a solitary goal margin while both teams to score has not paid out in any of the last six meetings between these teams.
With both sides looking extremely solid defensively there should be plenty of interest in opposing both teams to find the back of the net.
Argentina vs Brazil tips & predictions
Both teams to score ‘no’ is priced at 3/4 (1.75) and looks like an excellent option while combining this bet with under 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 20/21 (1.98).
