Brazil and Argentina are two fiercest rivals in South America and have maintained their rivalry in this year's FIFA World Cup qualifier CONMEBOL qualifying series.

Argentina won their first Copa America in July, defeating Brazil in the final at the Maracana stadium. It is something that will be talked about long into generations to come, defeating Brazil to win a trophy on Brazilian soil. Matches between the two are always personal, even up to the citizens.

The qualifying match scheduled for the early hours of tomorrow GMT time was postponed from the September international break after Brazilian authorities invaded the pitch to arrest four players who had entered the country from the UK and failed to quarantine.

Emi Martinez, Emi Buendia, Giovanni Lo Celso and Cristian Romero all play in the Premier League and failed to quarantine, they also missed games for their clubs after having to quarantine after returning to the UK. The game was postponed and will now be played later today.
