Lionel Messi will be leading his side to get a maximum three points when Argentina play a Fifa World Cup qualifier match against his club team mate (Luis Suarez) nation who will not be available to help his side due to injury.
Argentina are currently fifth on the table with 22 points, while Uruguay are third on table with 23 points, one point adrift Lionel Messi’s team.
Both teams will need an outright win to keep their hopes alive, but Argentina will need winning more to enable them climb into the top four irrespective of the results of other matches that will be played.
On the other hand, Uruguay will depend on the results of other teams such as Colombia, Chile and Ecuador to maintain their top should they lose to Argentina, while a win or draw will still keep them in the top four.
In the absence of Luis Suarez, Cavani will be saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that his side live up to expectations and at least prove the Argentine wrong.
Luis Suarez will surely want his side to be at the Fifa World Cup irrespective of weather Argentina qualifies or not, but he also would want his Barcelona team mate to be in a good state of mind when they resume for club duties after the international break.
South America have four automatic slots to the Fifa World Cup, with the fifth position going to play a play-off to determine if they will qualify to the World Cup or not.
