Argentina will take on Peru this Friday in a World Cup qualifier knowing it already has a spot in Brazil locked up. Meanwhile, Peru has already been eliminated from advancing.
That leaves this match as a battle to build momentum and make a statement. Not that Argentina can make much of a statement in this one, but it certainly wants to keep things going in the right direction.
With 29 points, Argentina leads the CONMEBOL; however, the top spot is still up for grabs. Colombia trails by three points. This should ensure a quality effort from Argentina despite the fact the squad is not at full strength.
They will have to do that while playing without their two top goal scorers, Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain. via | Bleacher Report
