South American international football is back as Argentina take on Venezuela in a CONMEBOL World Cup Qualification match.
The 2021 Copa America winners have already qualified for the World Cup in Qatar this summer and Venezuela can’t physically qualify – so this is really more of an exhibition match for both sides. Either way, we’re looking forward to a fantastic game of football.
Argentina come into this game on a remarkable 29-match unbeaten run. Venezuela on the other hand have one win in five and haven’t kept a clean sheet in 12 matches. This could be fun.
With both sides with nothing to lose, We are sure both teams will go all out and it’ll be a massively open and exciting game.
Here’s everything you need to know regarding Argentina against Venezuela.
Argentina vs Venezuela will take place on Friday 25th March 2022 at La Bombenera. The match will kick off at 11:30 pm GMT.

We know they’ll be goals in this game, but we think they’ll all be going Argentina’s way. They’ll likely field a strong lineup to prepare for the team they may select at the World Cup and with the Venezuelans in such poor form, they’ll certainly put quite a few past them.
