City trio in line for Argentina crunch game

City trio in line for Argentina crunch game
While Europe hosts a number of high-profile international friendlies this week, things are heating up in South America.

The South America World Cup qualifiers continue with some fascinating games this week.

Pablo Zabaleta, Nicolas Otamendi and Sergio Aguero could all start for Argentina, still licking their wounds from a 3-0 defeat to Brazil last week.

The Albiceleste will host Marlos Moreno’s Colombia on Tuesday evening knowing a win could ease talk of a crisis as well as climbing above the third-placed Colombians - a defeat could possibly see the Argentines slip to third bottom of the South American World Cup qualifying group.

and Gabriel Jesus are likely to again start for group leaders Brazil who travel to Peru, looking to strengthen their their grip at the top.

Claudio Bravo limped out of Chile's clash with Colombia last week and faces a fitness test ahead of the clash with Uruguay. Chile can ill-afford to drop points against the Uruguayans who could pull nine points clear of Chile with a win in Santiago.
