It is one of – if not the – most glamorous games in football featuring the two nations that have done most to enrich the world’s game and who just happen to be neighbours and fierce rivals. Some highlights from the past:
1982: Brazil 3-1 Argentina: World Cup second group round – Brazil blow Argentina away.
1990: Argentina 1-0 Brazil: World Cup second round – Eight year’s later it’s Diego’s revenge.
2005: Argentina 3-1 Brazil: World Cup Qualifier featured a screamer from Riquelme.
2005: Brazil 4-1 Argentina: Confederations Cup final – A year too soon this was Brazil’s false dawn.
