If Argentina do end up completing fifth in CONMEBOL qualifying, it will certainly not be the end of the globe as they would certainly most likely win a play-off against New Zealand and make it to Russian Federation anyway.

Argentina, on the other hand, will be without Sergio Kun Aguero after the Manchester City striker was injured in a auto crash a week ago.

There is a serious need for Agrentina to be consistent in the upcoming two matches of the World Cup qualifiers.

Since both teams play each other, only one of them can get all three points. Anything less could mean that Russia's World Cup may be without arguably the top player in the world, Lionel Messi.

Although the Argentines dominated most of the match, they were unable to find a way past fourth-placed Peru.

Their rocky road to Russian Federation 2018 has already accounted for former head coaches Gerardo Martino, who resigned, and Edgardo Bauza.

Brazil vs Chile could be one of two game that decide the final standings.

In the final round of matches on Tuesday, Uruguay face Bolivia, Peru host Colombia, Ecuador are at home against Argentina, Chile visit Brazil and Paraguay meet Venezuela.

Goals from Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sanchez, either side of Romario Ibarra's equaliser, were on Thursday night enough to put Chile into third place in the South American qualifying group on 26 points as well as knock out Ecuador, reports Efe.

While this would ultimately take a massive burden off the shoulders of Messi and elevate Argentina above the status of perennial also-rans, there's still the small matter of finding a striker that won't fluff the myriad of opportunities that Messi creates.

Elsewhere, Uruguay failed to break down a stubborn Venezuela in a 0-0 draw that edged them closer to qualification. I remain confident we'll be in the World Cup.

"[Messi] is a player that can not be disputed.

It is up to us (the qualification)", Argentina head coach Jorge Sampaoli said.

The Argentina global has scored 11 league goals in seven outings this term, 48 per cent of the club's total haul, as Ernesto Valverde's side sit five points clear at the top of the table. They have players of superlative level. A draw would also be good enough to go straight through if there is a victor in the Peru match, Chile lose by two or Paraguay fail to win.
