Uruguay is now fourth with 22 points and Peru is fifth with 21 points, with two games left to play. Only mathematics sustains Reinaldo Rueda's knocked-out team with a minimal hope to avoid what seems imminent, its first absence from the qatar world cup 2022 in the last 12 years, after good participations in Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018. Colombia will need to win its last two games, in March against Bolivia at home and Venezuela away, and depend on other results to force a miracle.
Uruguay thrashed Venezuela 4-1 in Montevideo to put them in the direct ticket zone for qatar world cup 20222, while fun88 casino Chile got a decisive 3-2 win over Bolivia in La Paz that keeps them hopeful of making the leap to the qualification places in the last two matches.
If Colombia will always remember the 5-0 win over Argentina in Buenos Aires, in the qualifiers for the USA 94 World Cup, this 0-1 win could be the other side of the coin, a sad tango that pulverizes their chances of reaching Qatar to the minimum. fun88 bet There is no paradise without goals and Rueda's team increased its cursed streak to 646 minutes without scoring. But in addition, or above all, Colombia played with little attitude, without rebelliousness, as if they were already resigned to elimination.
Fun88 At times it seemed that Argentina, without Lionel Messi, who had already qualified a couple of matches ago and had been ahead since the 29th minute thanks to Lautaro Martinez's goal, was the team that needed to win to secure its ticket to Qatar, while Colombia responded with the indolence of a team that was not playing for anything important. The star of the visiting team was goalkeeper Camilo Vargas, who prevented what could have been -and deserved to be- a more comfortable victory for Argentina.
Colombia's individuals could not rescue a lukewarm, crepuscular team either. James Rodríguez never found the game and was replaced after 56 minutes; Juan Guillermo Cuadrado had no interlocutors; Luis Díaz was cancelled out by Gonzalo Montiel; Radamel Falcao came on too late; and Miguel Borja created the only scoring chance, but the ball ended up in the body of goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez -and, on the rebound, Germán Pezzella avoided the equalizer on the line-.
After the unusual 1-0 defeat against Peru last Friday in Barranquilla, the bad news for Colombia already started on Tuesday, with the victories of Chile in Bolivia and Uruguay in Montevideo. Although still out of the qualifiers, the red team saved a match point in La Paz and in a tachycardic ending defeated Bolivia 3-2 with two goals by Alexis Sanchez and one by Marcelino Nunez.
