Brazil vs Argentina, FIFA World Cup qualifier: Head-to-Head and other key stats | Football News


The FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifiers are in full swing and Brazil will have a point to prove when they meet arch rivals Argentina at the Maracana Stadium, starting at 6:00 am IST on Wednesday. The five World Cup winners have struggled for form, losing twice and drawing in their last three games. They are currently fifth in the CONMEBOL standings.

Argentina, on the other hand, have carried forward their fine form since the FIFA World Cup held in Qatar and have only lost once since winning the title. They have won four out of five games, with their only win coming against Uruguay. Despite the 2-0 loss, Argentina are placed at the top of the table.

Brazil’s biggest star, Neymar, is unavailable for the match as he is still nursing his ACL injury, which he suffered during Brazil’s 2-0 win over Uruguay. Lionel Messi, however, is available and Argentina fans will be hoping to see their legend find the net during the clash.

Ahead of the encounter, we look at some key statistics between the two sides:

Head to head record:

The two nations have been involved in 108 matches, of which Brazil has won 45, and Argentina has won 40. 23 games between the two have ended in draws.

H2H in WC Qualifiers:

The pair have met nine times in FIFA World Cup qualifiers, with Brazil winning four and Argentina twice. Three finished in a draw.
