How to Watch Peru vs. Colombia

Here's how 1 Argentine can end Lionel Messi, Argentina's 2018 FIFA World Cup dream

Even with a defeat versus Peru, Colombia could still qualify, but the chances are extremely slim as Paraguay can't win vs Venezuela, Argentina has to be defeated and Chile needs to lose by a bigger margin against Brazil than Colombia against Peru. A victory would guarantee they finish no worse than fifth place, putting them into a two-legged play-off against New Zealand that they would be expected to win.

Expect an intense match as Ecuador attempts to spoil Argentina's World Cup dreams.

Argentina have beaten Ecuador only once in a World Cup qualifier in Quito, where the high altitude makes life hard for visiting teams.

- A draw seems good enough for Argentina if Colombia beat Peru and Paraguay fail to beat Venezuela.

Neymar has assured his former Barcelona team mate that Brazil will do everything in their power to win the game versus Chile. But four qualifiers now with no victories have Argentina on the precipice and defeat is unthinkable.

And if Argentina win, then the loser between Peru and Colombia will go down under the Argentina and team Lionel Messi will have the chance to participate Russia World Cup through play off.

The players have not spoken to the press since last Thursday's 0-0 draw with Peru and there is an evident tension ahead of their game in Quito.

In that doomsday scenario, it would depend on the result of the Peru-Colombia result as to whether Chile finished fifth or sixth.

While a handful of nations have already booked their place in next summer's Russia World Cup, there is still a lot to play for in South America.

Anything less than a win for Colombia will see these fixtures have a major say in the destiny of "La Tricolor" in the quest for Russian Federation 2018.

Irish rockers U2 have agreed to delay their concert in Buenos Aires on Tuesday to allow their fans to watch Argentina's do-or-die World Cup qualifier.

Game on. A win would surely put Argentina through with 28 points, barring some unforeseen results elsewhere in South America.

Argentina were drawn in an easy-looking group with Bolivia and Peru, but started off with a characteristic 3-1 loss to Bolivia at altitude on July 27, 1969.

Argentina's struggles throughout their 2018 qualification campaign have threatened to leave Messi hanging for a little longer, but Infantino believes that Jorge Sampaoli's side will drag themselves over the line.
