The World Cup qualifiers

The World Cup qualifiers will continue this week, with a number of top teams battling to book their slots.

In South America, the penultimate round of matches will see mouth-watering clashes, with five teams still in with a chance.

Only Brazil and Argentina are through to the finals set for December in Qatar.

So, what is the status?

The top four sides in the 10-team group qualify automatically and the fifth-placed side go into a playoff against a team from the Asian confederation.

Ecuador, Uruguay, Peru, Chile, and Colombia all have a chance of being in Qatar, but they will have to work for it.

Uruguay, who currently sit fourth will be favorites to clinch an automatic spot when they play Peru on Friday.

The South American giants have won their last two matches, beating Venezuela and Paraguay to put themselves in a good position.

Ecuador currently sit this on the log with 25 points, and just like Uruguay, they will book a final spot with a win against the already eliminated Paraguay.

Here are this weekend’s fixtures; 

  • Colombia vs Bolivia
  • Paraguay vs Ecuador
  • Brazil vs Chile
  • Uruguay vs Peru
  • Argentina vs Venezuela
