Argentina against Uruguay, the last 5 Qualifiers

Mario Bolatti Argentina Uruguay

Argentina against Uruguay has produced some memorable matches as of late, especially in the World Cup Qualifiers.

The Albiceleste have had the upper hand in the last couple of World Cup Qualifying matches between these two rivals. If we go back to the 2010 World Cup Qualifiers (which Albiceleste fans would like to try and forget), Argentina have lost only one match against the Charruas.

Argentina against Uruguay

With the 2010 World Cup Qualifiers under way, the first match between these two teams came in October of 2008. The match ended in a 2-1 win for the home team with Lionel MESSI and Sergio AGUERO the two goalscorers for the sky blue and white (although in this match they were wearing the dark blue shirt). The second match was a dramatic 0-1 win for Argentina, with Mario BOLATTI scoring to secure World Cup Qualification for Diego MARADONA’s men.

Having picked up two wins out of two against Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup Qualifiers, it was onto the 2014 Qualifiers. A big 3-0 win in Argentina with Lionel MESSI putting on a fantastic performance and scoring a memorable free kick goal secured the three points for his nation. It was now three wins out of three against the Uruguayans. The team’s only loss recently in the World Cup Qualifiers against Uruguay came when qualification for 2014 was already sealed and coach Alejandro SABELLA played a second string line-up against a Uruguay team which had to win. The result was a 3-2 loss for Argentina, captain Maxi RODRIGUEZ scoring both goals. That match also marked Mauro ICARDI’s first and only cap for the Argentina National Team.

In the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers, the first match was in Argentina with Lionel MESSI once more saving his team and scoring against Uruguay in their 1-0 win. Paulo DYBALA received two yellow cards as he was sent off for Argentina. Here are the line-ups, highlights and goals from those matches:
