The Argentina’s team will receive their pair from Ecuador this Thursday, at the start of the CONMEBOL Qualifiers for Qatar 2022, in The Bombonera.
The Albiceleste team adopted the Boca Juniors stadium to be their home at the beginning of the road to the next World Cup and we carried out a review of the matches played by the National Team on this field.
Since the inauguration of La Bombonera in 1940, Argentina has played 25 matches in that field, obtaining 16 wins, 7 draws and 2 defeats., which gives an effectiveness of 73%.
The first meeting was in November 1956, in a friendly against Uruguay, which ended 2-2.
By World Cup qualifiers were played 7 matches, with a balance of 4 wins and 3 draws, although we must highlight a painful 2-2 against Peru in 1969, which cost the Albiceleste qualification for the 1970 World Cup.
In recent years there have been three meetings. In 2012 the Superclásico of the Americas was played, with a 2-1 victory over Brazil, but a penalty shootout. In 2017, Argentina hosted Peru and it all ended in a goalless draw. In May 2018, Argentina said goodbye to the public prior to the 2018 World Cup in Russia with a 4-0 defeat of Haiti.
This Thursday a new World Cup path begins and the stage will be the mythical Bombonera, although it will have a very special and particular setting, as it cannot have an audience, due to the pandemic.
