Chile, who have won two Copa Americas in a row, are Argentina’s biggest threat to qualification. However, they face a tough trip to in-from Brazil, who have steamrolled the qualification group thus far, and have already secure their place in next year’s World Cup.
In addition, a Brazil victory against Chile could aid Argentina in possibly grabbing an automatic qualification spot. As reported by SPORT, Neymar has apparently made it his priority to see his former teammate go through, and a Brazilain win would help see that through.
“Neymar has acknowledged that he needs to beat Chile, not only ‘to offer a good image before our fans,’ but also to help his friend Leo Messi.”
