Phew! What a performance it was from the hosts in the SuperClasico! Brazil's comfortable 3-0 win over Argentina means that Tite's side now have 5 out of 5 while Argentina will now host Colombia in a must-win match on Tuesday.
Failure to win there, will leave Argentina facing a real battle to just get to the World Cup. Bauza will be under real pressure and Tuesday's game could be a do-or-die match for his Argentina managerial career
90' It is almost full time here and no one can deny that Brazil have been good value for their comfortable victory. Meanwhile, on the pitch, Messi tries to jink his way past the Brazil defence, but Marquinhos gets a block in to deny Argentina a consolation goal
88' Brazil almost make it 4 again! Neymar and Firmino cause some problems to the Argentine backline again and in the end Funes-Mori will be heaving a sigh of relief that his clearance did not bounce back off Firmino into the goal. There has been a real gulf of class here.
83' What a beautiful goal that would have been! Coutinho and Renato Augusto combine brilliantly with some delightful passes, but Firmino is somehow just short of applying the finishing touch. Looks like the spirit of Joga Bonito is back!
82' As my colleague Anirudh here is pointing out, Neymar is toying with the Argentine defence as if they are Leganes or Las Palmas
78' CHANCE! Neymar goes past the goalkeeper, but the Brazilian's touch for a change lets him down and the ball goes behind for a goal-kick. If there is a goal in the game, it looks like it will come from the hosts rather than Argentina
74' Neymar! WOW! The Brazilian is bringing out his full repertoire of tricks. He is absolutely tormenting the Argentina back-line with his skills. The home crowd can't get enough of this.
70' SAVE! Messi this time manages to work the goalkeeper Allison, but the free-kick was not struck with any great power and is saved easily by the Brazil shot stopper
69' Free-Kick in an excellent area for Argentina! Aguero makes a good run and is brought down just outside the box. It is in the perfect place for Messi. Can the Barcelona superstar deliver this time?
68' CHANCE! Coutinho picks out a wonderful pass which to Neymar who looked through on goal, but a desperate last-ditch tackle by Zabaleta sees the score remain at 3-0. Who would have thought the SuperClasico would have been so one sided
66' Could have been a red for Otamendi! The City defender goes straight through Gabriel Jesus, but the ref decides to let it go and not give a second yellow for that very poor tackle. Argentina players are loosing it here.
63' Neymar is turning on the style! Some flicks, some tricks, some feints and some stepovers. The Brazil crowd is really enjoying the show while Argentina look like they want to get off the pitch as soon as possible
61' Yellow card for Otamendi now! Argentina players are looking really frustarted
Marcelo gets the ball on the left-hand flank and floats in a harmless cross. However, some poor defending from Mas sees the ball reach Gabriel Jesus who plays the ball back to Paulino who makes no mistake with the finish. What a return from international wilderness for the former Tottenham man. Brazil should have the win now. Brazil 3-0 Argentina
57' SAVE! Dani Alves's free-kick had some sting, but Romero is able to punch the effort away
56' Funes-Mori goes into the book for a poor foul on Neymar. Free-kick in a dangerous area for Brazil
55' SHOT! Argentina counter immediately and Di Maria lets fly from a tight angle, but the shot only goes into the side netting. What an end-to-end game
54' How is it not 3-0?! Some shambolic defending from Argentina sees Paulinho round the goalkeeper, but his shot is cleared off the line by Zabaleta. Paulinho definitely should have scored there
