SAO PAULO (AP) — Despite the political crisis in Peru, Argentina’s final World Cup qualifier of the year is set to go as scheduled in Lima on Tuesday.
Peruvian President Manuel Merino has resigned from his post, creating unrest in the country and forcing Argentina to cancel training in the capital. But the country’s authorities assured South American football body CONMEBOL and FIFA on Monday that the game would be allowed to go ahead as planned.
All 10 teams in the South American group will be in action on Tuesday, with Brazil playing Uruguay, Ecuador hosting Colombia, Venezuela hosting Chile and Paraguay hosting Bolivia.
The matches will all be played in empty stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Brazil lead the group with nine points from three matches, followed by Argentina with seven, Ecuador and Uruguay with six, and Paraguay with five.
The top four teams will automatically qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fifth place team will participate in an intercontinental playoff.
PERU vs ARGENTINA
Apart from the training disruption, Argentina will also have to prepare for the match without midfielder Exequiel Palacios, who fractured a back bone in the 1-1 draw with Paraguay on Thursday.
However, the two-time World Cup champions may have left full-back Nicolás Tagliafico back from injury, and that could affect the squad up front.
Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni improvised with striker Nicolás González in place of Tagliafico against Paraguay. González did so well, scoring his team’s goal and defending solidly, that he is now considered a potential replacement for Lucas Ocampos.
Ocampos started alongside Lionel Messi against Paraguay but was taken off in the 60th minute and replaced by Ángel Di Maria.
Peru, eighth with one point, will be without striker Paolo Guerrero. Gianluca Lapadula and Raúl Ruidiaz are in the running to replace him.
URUGUAY v BRAZIL
Brazil will be without Neymar and seven other regulars for their game at Centenario Stadium in Montevideo.
Uruguay also have a few key absences, including midfielder Federico Valverde.
Substitutes Brazil failed to impress in Friday’s 1-0 win over Venezuela, but Uruguay earned a solid 3-0 win over Colombia on the same day led by veteran strikers Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez.
Brazil midfielder Allan, who is questionable for the game, said the poor performance against Venezuela will not be repeated.
“It will be totally different against Uruguay,” Allan said. “They will come to us and play, which means they could give us more space to counter.”
Besides Valverde, Uruguay will also be without goalkeeper Martín Silva, defender Sebastián Coates and striker Maxi Gómez. Left-back Matias Viña has been infected with COVID-19 and will also miss the game.
