Argentina vs Chile build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
The only blemish on Argentina’s card after their opening four rounds was a 1-1 draw against Paraguay on matchday three. La Albiceleste had gone behind through a Ángel Romero penalty before Nicolás González ultimately rescued a point. Lionel Scaloni’s men would return to winning ways next time out at Peru when they ran out 0-2 winners; on the scoresheet again was González, he goes into this week’s game as his nation’s joint leading 2022 WCQ scorer — alongside Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martínez — on two goals.
It’s a different story regarding Chile who have a fight on their hands to reach next year’s finals. Martín Lasarte’s team currently sit two points below fifth place which leads to a inter-confederation play-off. It’s also the same deficit to the final automatic qualification spot. A demoralising matchday one loss to Uruguay, who netted a 93rd minute winner, led to a 2-2 draw against Colombia before they pulled a 2-0 win over Peru and last time out they suffered another 2-1 defeat at the hands of Venezuela.
- Argentina (vs Peru): Armani; Montiel, Otamendi, Martínez Quarta, Tagliafico; De Paul, Lo Celso, Paredes, González; Messi; Lautaro Martínez.
- Chile (vs Bolivia): Bravo; González, Medel, Vegas, Wiemberg; Alarcón, Pinares, Galdames; Orellana, Jiménez, Meneses.
Barcelona’s newly-signed marksman Sergio Agüero misses out due to illness and he’s joined on the sidelines by influential Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal.

Player to watch: Lionel Messi (Argentina)
It’s been an interesting last few months regarding Lionel Messi who is reportedly set to sign a new Barcelona contract. The record six-time Ballon d’Or recipient ended 2020/21 having bagged 38 goals across 47 matches in all competitions and will now be seeking to bolster his impressive Argentina tally. Coming into this latest round of international fixtures the 33-year-old has mustered 71 strikes in 142 matches (a national team record) but is currently on a three-game scoring drought. In six previous qualification games against Chile though Messi could only muster three goals with two of those strikes coming at home.
