Early Wednesday, five-time world champions Brazil will face the current title holders Argentina in a thrilling FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifier at the Maracana Stadium, Rio de Janeiro.

The world champions team are expected to be led by the 2023 Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi in the same stadium where the La Albiceleste defeated Brazil for the Copa America title in 2021.

The last time both forces shared the field was during the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers in November 2021. 

Both teams suffered the bitter taste of loss as Brazil were defeated by Colombia 2-1, while Argentina were stunned by Uruguay.

Argentina are still at the top of the group by gaining 12 points, and Brazil are struggling at fifth place with seven points.
