Brazil and Argentina locks horns once again this week for the showpiece event of the Conmebol World Cup qualifying campaign. The Selecao host their great rivals on Thursday when everyone will have to play their part in a contest that will not boil down to Barcelona vs Barcelona ( Neymar vs messi ).
The talk has been focused on Barcelona team-mates Neymar and Messi, who will find themselves on opposite teams. The superstar duo carry the hopes of their nation, but the clash is so much more than just a face-off between two of the game’s greatest individuals.
Both nations have faced continued accusations of an over-reliance on star performers, but under new coach Tite, the Selecao appear to have found an answer. The emergence of Gabriel Jesus has provided a solution to Brazil’s long search for a centre-forward. The teenage sensation is the top scorer under the new boss with four goals in four appearances.
Gonzalo Higuain will also be expected to find the net with Argentina desperate for goals – only three of the 10 teams on the continent have scored fewer than the 11 Argentina have netted in 10 outings.
Brazil can also welcome back Douglas Costa, who is hoping to make his first international appearance since March, while midfield maestro Renato Augusto has been one of Brazil’s finest performers since breaking into the team last year and leading the Selecao to Olympic gold in Rio.
The two coaches, too, will play a vital role. Tite is riding high, earning labels of the saviour of Brazilian football, while Edgardo Bauza is on the ropes after winning just one of his four games in charge. The question is Will Bauza shuffle his pack? Will Tite spring a surprise? It’s the Superclasico: Neymar and Messi has to play their part.
