CONMEBOL 2022 World Cup qualifiers
Commonly one of the most contested qualifiers in world football, qualifying for Qatar 2022 is intense.
While the games are also available via pay-per-view, fuboTV offers another way to watch the 10 teams compete against each other.
In South America, 10 nations compete for four guaranteed places at the World Cup. Each team plays one home match and one away match against all the other nations in the group. As a result, each team plays 18 games. At the end of all team matches, the top four teams advance directly to the World Cup group stage. The fifth-ranked team then enters an international qualifying match to advance to the group stage.
In recent years, the drama has persisted until the last day. Notably, Lionel Messi’s hat trick against Ecuador on the final matchday saw Argentina take third, securing a place in Russia.
This season there is just as much drama, if not more.
Five teams are seated within three points of each other after six matches. Ecuador, Uruguay, Colombia, Paraguay and Chile are fighting for three to five places. Brazil is a perfect six of six wins. Argentina are in second place with a three-point cushion over Ecuador.
Match days 9, 6 and 10
The next round of matches will start in early September. Officially, these matches represent days nine, six and ten. COVID-19 and other forces have pushed back those dates. It blurred the previous schedule.
