Curious fact: Argentina's toughest defeat

On April 1, 2009, Messi was part of the team that suffered one of the toughest defeats in Argentina's history. Already with Maradona on the bench, the national team was humiliated with a resounding 6-1 defeat in La Paz. 

Carrizo, Zanetti, Demichelis, Heinze, Papa, Maxi Rodríguez, Mascherano, Gago, Lucho González, Messi and Tevez was the team that wrote its name in one of the blackest pages. 

7:15 PMa year ago

World Cup qualifying history

It should be recalled that Argentina and Bolivia have met 21 times in South American qualifiers. The statistics widely favor the Albiceleste with 13 wins, three draws and five defeats. In addition, they have scored 40 goals for and 25 against.

The first meeting between Argentina and Bolivia took place on October 6, 1957. On that occasion, Los Altiplánicos won the match (2-0) thanks to goals by Alcócer and Ramírez, while the last meeting (1-2) was won by Argentina thanks to goals by Lautaro Martínez and Joaquín Correa.

7:10 PMa year ago

Little by little the fans are arriving at the Monumental!

For the first time since the pandemic began in Argentina, there will be a crowd at a sporting event. This will be the opportunity for Lionel Messi and the Argentine National Team to celebrate the title achieved in front of their fans.

7:05 PMa year ago

How is the leaderboard in South America?

The table is as follows: the leader is Brazil with 21 points, followed by Argentina with 15; Ecuador with 13; and Uruguay with 12, in the group of the four that will go directly to the World Cup, and further back in the playoff zone is Colombia with 10. It is worth mentioning that both Brazil and Argentina have a game in hand, pending FIFA's decision.
7:00 PMa year ago

Argentina with confidence

What is not lacking in the Albiceleste ranks is confidence, which they gained with the victory in the final of the Copa América in Maracaná and against Brazil after almost three decades without being crowned champions.

The suspension of the match against Brazil was "a pity, a shame, because we were going to win", said Martínez before leaving his team, reflecting the team's mood, which is in second place in the standings with 15 points, while waiting for FIFA to decide what to do with the points from the suspended match.

6:55 PMa year ago

This is how the albiceleste comes out!

These are the eleven men who will start the match with the aim of winning the match, with the presence of Musso and, as always, captain Leo Messi.

There will be a full stadium

The 17,000 tickets available for the match between Argentina and Bolivia for the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup were sold out on Tuesday a few hours after the virtual sale began. 

Also, this match will be the first soccer match to be played in Argentina with public since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and will serve as a "pilot test" to analyze the return of spectators to sports venues. This will also be a special game for the Albiceleste, as they will be playing their first home game after winning the Copa América. 

6:35 PMa year ago


The soccer world was expecting a great South American classic between Brazil and Argentina on Sunday. It had all the ingredients to be so: both teams had just played a Copa América final (won by the Albiceleste), and now they were facing each other in World Cup qualifying as first and second place in the standings.

However, the match came to a screeching halt after just five minutes. At the beginning, it was not clear what had happened, but later it was reported: Brazilian health authorities entered the field to prevent some Argentine players from participating in the match due to a controversy about covid-19 protocols.

Several minutes after what happened on the field, Conmebol confirmed that the match was suspended by the referee's decision.

Key Player Bolivia

Fernando Saucedo was the national hero of the Bolivian national team last game and will be the player to follow for this match, throughout his career he has played only 600 minutes in which he has appeared 11 times in the starting lineup, he has also scored on 1 occasion and assisted only 2 times throughout his career. He currently plays for Always Ready in the Bolivian first division, he is one of the promises of his country and little by little he has begun to show himself to the world, so the game against Argentina could be a factor for him to become again the man who gives joy to the people of Bolivia.

Key Player Argentina

The historic Argentine player and considered the best in history, Lionel Andrés Messi, will be the player to follow for this match, since his first call-up with the national team he has played 12,555 minutes with the Albiceleste, in which he has appeared 152 times in the starting line-up, has scored 76 goals and has collaborated in 52 goals of the Argentine squad. Likewise, he has 8 yellow cards and only 2 red cards, the current PSG signing could tip the scales in favor of the Argentines at any moment because he is always a latent goal threat every time the Argentine star touches the ball.

The Stadium

Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti, also known as Estadio Monumental or Monumental de Núñez, is a stadium located in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  It is owned by Club Atlético River Plate and was inaugurated on May 26, 1938 by the president of that time, Antonio Vespucio Liberti, who also decided its construction; hence its name.

It is owned by Club Atlético River Plate and was inaugurated on May 26, 1938 by the president of that time, Antonio Vespucio Liberti, who also decided its construction, hence its name. It is the largest soccer stadium in Argentina and one of the largest in the Americas. 

The Monumental stadium is traditionally the venue where the national team plays most of its home matches. Its importance led it to host four Copa América finals (1946, 1959-I, 1987 and 2011), and the 1978 World Cup final, among other sporting events.

In search of the feat

Contrary to the Argentinean team, in Bolivia there is the concern of not achieving the goal of attending the greatest soccer competition, as they are in 8th place in the South American qualifiers, only ahead of Peru and Venezuela, who are following them very closely. Also, one of the most important factors that will play against them is that the Bolivians have 6 games without a victory, the last time they won was on June 3, 2021 when they beat Venezuela by a score of 3-0.

To show why they are the champions

The current champions of America have already won the coveted Copa America trophy after being denied it on several occasions. Likewise, the Albiceleste team has already gone 27 matches without defeat and is currently the runner-up in the CONMEBOL qualifying round with 15 points out of a possible 21. With just over a year to go until the next World Cup, everything seems to indicate that the representatives of the Argentinean people will have a smooth qualifying campaign and will be present at the next major soccer event.

The World Cup dream resumes

After a dream summer for the Argentine national team with the conquest of the Copa America with Messi at the helm, the Argentine team is back together again in search of returning to the highest soccer fair, after having stumbled in the first round of elimination in Russia 2018 against France. For its part, Bolivia has been having problems for some time now, first, it had a sad performance in the Copa America 2021 and today is in eighth place in the qualifiers for the World Cup in Qatar. Again, the dream resumes for both teams, a win or a loss could make a big difference in the future, for Argentina a victory would mean to consolidate the good pace and continue as sub-leaders, while for Bolivia a breath of pure oxygen.
