Argentina and Brazil will contest one of the biggest matches of 2009 on 5 September. Three points may seal A Seleção's place at the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, while defeat could drop La Albiceleste out of the automatic qualification berths. FIFA.com wants to know whether you foresee a home win, a draw or an away victory in Rosario.
The fierce enemies have experienced contrasting fortunes this year. Brazil lifted the FIFA Confederations Cup, returned to the summit of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, and have won ten and drawn one of their 11 matches. Argentina, meantime, have registered five victories in seven outings, but have worryingly lost two of their last three qualifiers: 6-1 away to Bolivia and 2-0 in Ecuador.
After their first meeting in the South Africa 2010 preliminaries ended goalless in Belo Horizonte, Argentina will have home advantage this time round. Diego Maradona, who will face Brazil for the first time as coach, will charge Javier Mascherano, Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero with undoing the five-time world champions.
Dunga, who has masterminded two successes over Argentina in three attempts from the dugout - including a 3-0 triumph in the Copa America 2007 final - will entrust Julio Cesar, Kaka, Robinho and Luis Fabiano with inspiring an away win.
