On November 22, a highly anticipated match is set to occur in the CONMEBOL World Cup Preliminaries, featuring Brazil against Argentina. This significant match is scheduled to commence at 00:30 UTC.
The Brazilian and Argentinian national teams are preparing to reignite their rivalry, two years after their last encounter in the CONMEBOL Preliminaries, which concluded in a goalless draw. Brazil, also known as BRASIL, is currently experiencing a challenging phase. They are heading into this encounter on the back of losses against Colombia and Uruguay, marking a three-game stretch without a win. The team, under their coach’s guidance, is likely to focus intensively on bolstering their defense, especially since they have conceded goals in their last five home games.

Assessing their performances in the last 20 matches, Brazil has achieved 12 wins, 6 losses, and 2 draws, whereas Argentina boasts 18 wins, a single loss, and one draw.
Focusing on their last six matches, Brazil secured victories against Peru and Bolivia, suffered defeats against Colombia, Uruguay, and Senegal, and had a draw with Venezuela. On the other hand, Argentina emerged victorious against Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Indonesia, with their only loss coming at the hands of Uruguay.
