International Friendly: Brazil vs Argentina Odds, Picks & Predictions

  • Brazil is in excellent condition so that home fans will be pleased. Three of their last four home games have resulted in victories.
  • Brazil will be confident that they will score, as they have scored in their home games this season.
  • Argentina has not been defeated in any of its last five games. It has won two of the five games and tied three. Eight goals have been scored in these five games.

The game was intended to assist Brazil in preparing for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but Argentina’s counterparts canceled it, according to Juninho Paulista, Brazil’s football confederation coordinator. 

It’s still a pity we will not witness the two giants play in the UEFA Nations League as they are from South America

The Argentine football federation remained silent on the matter. Brazil will play two friendlies in Asia on June 2 and 6 and is now seeking an African opponent on June 11.

FIFA ruled that Brazil and Argentina must re-play their 2022 World Cup qualifier. Shortly after the game began in September, it was halted because some of Argentina’s players violated COVID-19 rules.

FIFA wants the game to take place in September, with the Nations League Predictions still ongoing but neither team has confirmed their attendance.

Coach Tite also selected his team for the exhibition match. Forward Gabriel Jesus was one of the returning players. The Manchester City forward participated in the previous FIFA World Cup with the Selecao. He is now attempting to make the Qatar team.

According to the Brazilian national team’s sports director, Juninho Paulista, the match between Argentina and Brazil in Australia has been canceled.

Palmeiras’s 21-year-old defensive midfielder Danilo was the lone new addition. In the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which begins on November 21, Group G will include Brazil.

Brazil vs Argentina Odds

There have been more than 100 meetings between Brazil and Argentina. 1914 marked the first time the two national teams competed against one another. Brazil is in the top spot with about 35 victories, while Argentina is close behind with roughly the same amount. 

Even though statistics indicate no overall difference between the two national teams, Brazil has performed better in recent years. In the past decade, Argentina has won very few games. Wonder how the two will fair if they were pitted in the Nations League odds?

Brazil defeated 2-1 against Belgium in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup, resulting in their elimination. Next year, they will attempt to return grandly.

The Selecao won the Copa America by defeating Peru 3-1 in the final the following year. They subsequently began their World Cup Qualifying campaign with consecutive victories over Bolivia, Peru, Venezuela, Uruguay, Ecuador, and Paraguay.

This brought them to this year’s Copa America when Tite’s squad was consistently formidable. They won challenging games against Chile and Peru to advance to the final but fell on their home turf Sunday.

Brazil won their sixth consecutive World Cup Qualifying match on Friday with a 1-0 victory over Chile. It was their first World Cup qualifying match since their previous defeat. Everton Ribeiro scored the only goal of the game.

When they play Lionel Scaloni’s team in Sao Paulo, they will attempt to win their eighth consecutive game and get revenge for their Copa America loss.

Argentina’s opening Copa America match was a stalemate with Chile. They subsequently defeated Uruguay, Paraguay, and Bolivia to win their group and earn a quarterfinal match against Ecuador.

In this 3-0 defeat, Rodrigo De Paul, Lautaro Martinez, and Lionel Messi scored. After tying Colombia 1-1 in the semi-final, they prevailed in a penalty shootout thanks to a fantastic strike by Emiliano Martinez.

This put them in the final against their rivals Brazil, where La Albiceleste maintained a 1-0 lead thanks to an early goal from Angel Di Maria to win their 15th Copa America championship.

Scaloni’s team played again and defeated Venezuela 3-1 on the road, a game that went according to the competition’s odds. In their first six World Cup Qualifying matches, they were victorious three times and drawn three times.

It took La Albiceleste some time to overcome their opponents, but Lautaro Martinez put them in front just before halftime. Joaquin Correa and Angel Correa scored in the second half to put their team in a commanding position until Yeferson Soteldo scored a late penalty kick for the opposition’s consolation goal.

After a dismal loss in the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup, they will strive to better their place in next year’s competition. With a victory, their deficit to Brazil will be reduced to three points.

Brazil vs Argentina Information

Location of the game’ TBA

Time: 22 Sept 2022 at 17:00 UTC

Betting on Brazil

The Premier League’s refusal to release players for international matches in countries on the COVID-19 red list has harmed Brazil’s squad. Thiago Silva, Fabinho, Gabriel Jesus, and Richardson could not travel with Ederson and Alisson Becker.

Tite had a rather formidable lineup on Friday, with Neymar and Flamengo forward Gabriel Barbosa heading the assault.

Everton Ribeiro, who scored the game-winning goal as a substitute, is in contention to start. Additionally, Hulk and Matheus Cunha are candidates.

In the absence of their two starting goalkeepers, the Selecao will again begin at Weverton in goal, this time behind the excellent central defensive combo of Eder Militao and Marquinhos.

Betting on Argentina

Argentina has been fortunate to recruit Premier League players. Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia came from Aston Villa, while Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso competed in defense and midfield for Tottenham Hotspur.

Lo Celso performed well in a midfield triangle with new Atletico Madrid star Rodrigo De Paul and Paris Saint-Leandro Germain’s Paredes in Copa America. Despite traveling to South America, Leandro Paredes was not on the team that played against Venezuela, and he may not participate on Sunday either.

Even though Angel Di Maria, Lionel Messi, and Lautaro Martinez have played together for a long time, Paulo Dybala, a top player for Juventus, will be trying to earn a starting position after recently rejoining the team.

Brazil vs Argentina Pick and Prediction

Most soccer picks after an analysis of Brazil vs Argentina odds predict the score will be Brazil 1-1 Argentina.

Even though Argentina has many players living in England and the Seleço has an extensive list of ineligible players, it will be difficult for Argentina to win away from home.

We believe that the two sides will play to a mutually beneficial draw. After Copa America, Brazil will seek to return Argentina’s generosity, and Argentina will want to ensure that Brazil’s strong structure limits its capabilities.

Soccer odds predict goals under 2.5

Our forecasts are based on the reality that the last few games between these two teams have not been particularly entertaining. Over 2.5 goals have only occurred once in their previous five games. In addition, just one team scored in each of those five games, supporting the previous wager.
