Battle For World Cup Slots Continues In South America

Brazil and Uruguay seems to have distinguished themselves in the South American World Cup qualifier as they have created a gap between them and others which makes it obvious that they may get the automatic four slots given to South America.

Just seven match-days are remaining to end the campaign, Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay and Peru all seem to have a chance of getting the last two automatic slots that are available for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The biggest match that will be witnessed on the 12th day of the qualifiers will be the clash between Argentina and Colombia, as Argentina have gone through a difficult situation in this campaign, without winning in their last four matches.

Paraguay will be hoping to capitalize on a weak Bolivia who are at the bottom of the table and get the maximum three points when they visit them on Tuesday, a match which is very crucial to Paraguay after losing to Peru in their last match.

Peru who seem to have rejuvenated after thrashing Paraguay at their home, will be hoping to test their strength at home when they host Brazil on match day 12.

Chile who was compelled to a goalless draw by Colombia in her last match, will be hosting Uruguay in her next match and will be hoping to get a win, while Uruguay will be looking up to maintaining their position on the table by getting the maximum three points needed in the match.

Ecuador are currently on the fourth position, and they will be hosting Venezuela whose hope of going to Russia is not realizable even if they win their host. However, Head to head record favours Ecuador, who have emerged victorious in their last two meetings.
