Argentina vs Uruguay build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Scaloni has enjoyed a near-flawless opening nine matches for the Qualifiers as he looks to make his first World Cup as a manager next year, and although fifth-placed Colombia are just five points behind, Argentina have a game in hand — owing to their suspended match with Brazil — while Reinaldo Rueda’s Los Cafeteros also take on a perfect Brazil (winning all nine of their Qualifiers) for their next game.
In the opposing dugout, the relatively inexperienced Scaloni faces one of the game’s most well-traveled and venerated tacticians in Oscar Tabarez. The Montevideo-born coach started his career on the technical line in 1980 so has a wealth of managerial savvy behind him. His La Celeste side occupy fourth and a victory here at River Plate’s El Monumental would ensure they move level with the continent’s current champions.
- Argentina (vs Paraguay): Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; Paredes, De Paul, Di Maria, Lo Celso; Messi, Correa.
- Uruguay (vs Colombia): Muslera; Nandez, Gimenez, Godin, Vina; Valverde, Vecino, Bentancur; De Arrascaeta, Rodriguez, Suarez.
Premier League trident Emiliano Martinez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso were given the green light to travel to this month’s Qualifiers after their quarantine controversy for September’s round of international fixtures, and they all started in the recent 0-0 with Paraguay on Friday.

Player to watch: Emiliano Martinez (Argentina)
The porteno has become a bit of a cult hero for Argentina since receiving his first cap at the start of the year, marking a sensational maiden campaign at Villa Park, in which he won Aston Villa’s Player of the Season, by translating that form to the international stage. Martinez was not only important as Argentina lifted the Copa America over the summer, but he was arguably the nation’s most important player, winning the competition’s Golden Glove and earning a place in the Team of the Tournament. He recently kept another clean sheet, his fifth in 10 international caps, and that watertight form will be imperative against the ever-prolific strike force of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani on Monday morning.
