    Full Time!! ARG 0 - 2 URU

    Goals from Ronald Araujo and Darwin Nunez helps Uruguay win against World Champions Argentina in Buenos Aires. Marcelo Bielsa’s men came in with the perfect game plan to stop the leaders.

    Lionel Messi saw his freekick strike the cross bar in the second half but the hard-pressing Uruguayan defence saw that Messi was surrounded throughout the game had no space to be at his fluent best.

    87’ Nunez makes it two!

    Goal!!! Darwin Nunez doubles the lead for Uruguay! Argentina put bodies forward trying to find an equaliser.

  • November 17, 2023 06:07
    32’ Ugarte shown yellow

    First yellow of the game for Ugarte, for a foul on Mac Allister. Not surprising, he’s been strong in his challenges today. Doesn’t get the ball this time.

  • November 17, 2023 05:56

    A freekick on the edge of the box after a foul on Messi. The Uruguay players not happy with that decision. Looked a little soft in the replays as well. Another argument ensues between Ugarte and De Paul.

    A diagonal run into the box from Gonzalez and Messi finds him with a through ball. Couldn’t prevent the ball from going out for a goal kick.

  • November 17, 2023 05:53

    Argentina wins the ball back at the centre of the field again, another threat of a counter but Pellistri drops back from right wing to deal with the danger. Good play.
