The highly anticipated FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifiers match between Brazil and Argentina will take place at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday. The BRA vs ARG football match is set to start at 6:00 AM IST (Indian Standard Time) on Wednesday.
Both teams have a rich history of success, with Brazil being five-time world champions and Argentina being title holders. The last time the two teams played was in the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign in November 2021, when the match was suspended after just five minutes due to the COVID-19 threat.
Despite both teams coming off losses in their previous matches – Brazil lost 2-1 to Colombia and Argentina was blanked 2-0 by Uruguay – Argentina currently holds the top spot with 12 points, two ahead of second-placed Uruguay. Brazil is struggling at fifth place with seven points.
The top six teams from the 10-team group, competing in a home and away round-robin league format, will automatically qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2026, which will take place in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. The seventh team will compete in the Inter-confederation play-offs. However, Brazil will be without key players such as Neymar, Casemiro, and Vinicius Junior due to injuries.
