After a long wait, nearly seven months, the qualifiers will return to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Let us remember that due to the Covid-19 crisis, it was not possible to hold the fifth and sixth matches in March, and for this reason now in June activities are being resumed from the date of 7-8.
Taking advantage of the fact that this week’s orbital appointment stakes competition is back, at FUTBOLRED we count scores, positions, scores and everything that is in place so far. As well as a calendar for each selection.
Postponement of dates 5 and 6
First of all, it is important to talk in detail about what happened a couple of months ago. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, European teams, especially England and Germany, have given a resounding refusal to loan footballers.
At that time, the seasons were in the selection phase and the clubs were unable to withstand losing important players for about a month (stadiums, potential injuries, etc.). Thus, Konmebol ended up putting off the double day.
How is the calendar then?
As we mentioned above, the South American competition is back this week. Between Thursday and Friday, the seventh day takes place with the following matches:
Thursday, June 3 (time in Colombia)
Bolivia vs. Venezuela – 3 pm
Uruguay – Paraguay – 5 pm
Argentina vs Chile – 7 pm
Peru vs Colombia – 9 pm
Friday June 4 (time zone in Colombia)
Brazil – Ecuador – 7:30 pm
After this series of matches, the teams will face again the following Tuesday. All in a row. This is how it’s programmed:
Tuesday 8 June (time in Colombia)
Ecuador – Peru – 4 pm
Venezuela – Uruguay – 5:30 pm
Colombia and Argentina – 6 pm
Paraguay – Brazil – 7:30 pm
Chile – Bolivia – 8; 30 pm
Table of positions
This is where the headache for Colombia begins. After painful defeats against Uruguay and Ecuador, Reynaldo Rueda’s men are tasked with clearing the road. For this, it is necessary to score at least four points in the next two fencing.
Here is the classification with four matches played:
1. Brazil – 12 points (+10).
2. Argentina – 1 points (+4).
3. Ecuador – 9 points (+7).
4. Paraguay – 6 points (+1).
5. Uruguay – 6 points (0).
6. Chile – 4 points (0).
7. Colombia – 4 points (-5).
8. Venezuela – 3 points (-4).
9. Peru – 1 point (-6).
10. Bolivia 1 point (-7).
Scorers and assists
In scoring matters, there is a three-way tie in square one. Angel Romero (Paraguay), Luis Suarez (Uruguay) and Arturo Vidal (Chile) scored four goals.
Regarding the passes, once again a triple tie for first place. Alberto Espendola (Paraguay), Ecuadorians Angel Mina and Moises Caicedo scored three goal assists each.
