The FIFA World Cup qualifiers feature several important matches this week as Argentina take on Colombia at the Estadio Metropolitano on Tuesday. Argentina have built a formidable squad under Lionel Scaloni and will want to put their best foot forward this week.
Colombia have been fairly inconsistent over the past year and currently find themselves in sixth place in the FIFA World Cup qualification table. The home side thrashed Peru by a 3-0 margin last week and will need to take it up a notch against the Albicelestes.
Argentina are unbeaten in the World Cup qualification campaign at the moment and will be intent on making the most of their impressive run of form. The likes of Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez have contributed heavily to the team's cause and will likely play a pivotal role in this fixture.
