In terms of the head-to-head record, La Albiceleste maintain a strong lead with 88 wins in 190 clashes across all competitions. Uruguay, on the flip side, have registered 57 victories and have not found a win in the last five match-ups between the South American giants.
ARG vs URU Dream11 tips for CONMEBOL FIFA World Cup qualifiers 2022
Top tip: Best forward
Luis Suarez is the top choice pick among forwards for the ARG vs URU game. The Atletico Madrid striker has registered four goals and an assist in eight league games this term, and will look to build upon his record of two goals and two assists against Argentina.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Despite his slow start to life at PSG, Lionel Messi is backed as the top midfielder for this fixture. The Argentina captain, who orchestrated his side’s Copa America triumph, is the joint-top scorer in the ARG vs URU clash with five goals and will fancy a match-winning performance to consolidate La Albiceleste’s unbeaten status in the qualifiers.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Argentina have conceded just six goals in nine games so far, keeping four clean sheets in the process. Cristian Romero has emerged as a key force in the defence and the Tottenham defender will hope to appease his fantasy football owners.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Emiliano Martinez is the first-choice pick. The Aston Villa custodian kept four clean sheets in six matches in Copa America 2021, and is poised to build upon his tally of six clean sheets in 10 caps for Argentina.
ARG vs URU probable playing XI
ARG probable XI (4-2-3-1): E. Martinez; Montiel, C. Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; Paredes, De Paul; Di Maria, Messi, Gomez; L. Martinez
URU probable XI (4-4-2): Muslera; Nandez, Godin, Gimenez, Vina; Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino, De Arrascaeta; Suarez, Cavani
