What’s happened so far?

There is only one qualifying stage within Conmebol which pits all 10 nations against one another in a traditional league format. All nations play each other twice, with the sides finishing in the top four qualifying automatically for the World Cup finals.

Who can still qualify?

The team that finishes in fifth place advances to an inter-confederation playoff against the nation that wins the fourth round of the AFC qualification process. That will ultimately see Peru take on one of United Arab Emirates or Australia, with the latter duo taking part in a single leg tie in Qatar on June 7. Peru will then face the victor a week later for a place at the World Cup.

How did the table finish?

The standings following matchday 18 are as follows:

Position Team Played Points
1 Brazil 17 45
2 Argentina 17 39
3 Uruguay 18 28
4 Ecuador 18 26
5 Peru 18 24
6 Colombia 18 23
7 Chile 18 19
8 Paraguay 18 16
9 Bolivia 18 15
10 Venezuela 18 10

Who has qualified for the World Cup from Conmebol?

Brazil and Argentina have had their qualification assured for some time, whilst Ecuador and Uruguay secured their passage to the World Cup on matchday 17.

Matchday 18 saw Peru pick up the win they needed with a 2-0 victory over Paraguay, securing their route to the inter-confederation playoff.

Colombia missed out on the playoff spot by one point, despite beating Venezuela 1-0 on matchday 18, meaning this will be the first World Cup since 2010 without Los Cafeteros.

There is one game from matchday six still to be played, after Brazil’s meeting with Argentina was abandoned after just five minutes. There hasn’t been a date set for that tie as things stand, but the result will have no bearing on qualification given both nations are already assured of a place in Qatar.
