The CONMEBOL Qualifiers for the next 2026 World Cup are in full swing, and we have reached matchday 6, where we have an adorable battle in all areas of the table.
We start with Brazil and Argentina falling in their Matchday 5 games, leaving them at the mercy of other national teams that continue to surprise. On the other hand, Venezuela and Ecuador were held to a 0-0 draw, while Peru remains the only South American team without a win after 5 matchdays played.
On this new match day, we will have the most awaited classic of South American soccer and one of the most important worldwide, Brazil vs. Argentina.
Tuesday, November 21 at 07:30 PM ET at Estadio de Maracanã
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Brazil?
For the first time in many years, the Brazilian national team is having a terrible time in the World Cup Qualifiers. The ‘Canarinha’ is in fifth place in the standings, with a record of 2 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses.
Moreover, it is fair to mention that these two defeats have been in their last two matches. This is the first time in the history of the South American qualifiers that the South American giant has lost two matches in a row. Now, the team will have to overcome a much more complicated test as they face the reigning world champions, Argentina, who are also coming off a loss on the previous matchday.
Brazil was surprised in their visit to Barranquilla by Colombia, as they lost with a score of 1-2, suffering an emotional Luis Diaz double with his parents in the stands.
Why Bet on Argentina?
On the other hand, we have the reigning World Champions, Leo Messi and Lionel Scaloni’s Argentina national team.
After setting a record of consecutive victories in official matches, the ‘Scaloneta’ lost their way at home and were outplayed by a Uruguayan team at an incredible level. In this match, ‘La Celeste’s’ young and talented players brought out their best form to lead their team to a 2-0 victory.
Similarly, Argentina remains at the top of the standings, as this is the first game they have lost in these qualifiers. However, facing a Brazil team needing victories will be a difficult challenge for this squad.
Final Betting Analysis: Brazil vs. Argentina
In the last 20 matches between Brazil and Argentina, the ‘Canarinha’ leads the series with 11 wins. The ‘Albiceleste,’ on the other hand, has accumulated only 5 wins, while 4 matches have ended in draws.
However, Argentina has won 2 of the last 3 games against Brazil by 1-0, and one was in the Final of the previous edition of the Copa America at their rival’s home.
At MyBookie.ag, we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors Brazil at +130, while Argentina starts at +215.
Although Brazil is a tough team to beat at home, like no other, we believe Argentina will step forward to get the 3 points again this time. That is why our prediction is a win for the ‘Albiceleste.’
Look for a win on Argentina’s Moneyline. For example, if you put $100 on them at +215, you’ll see a $215 success with a total payout of $315.
