Sky Bet World Cup Odds: Argentina Struggle to Qualify as Germany and England Advance to Russia

Argentina are at risk of failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup and need to beat Ecuador in their final CONMEBOL qualifier next Tuesday in order to give themselves a a chance at advancing to the finals in Russia.

A 0-0 stalemate at home to Peru on Thursday left the two-time world champions sixth in the CONMEBOL standings with only match remaining—only the top four teams qualify automatically, while the fifth-place finisher heads into the inter-confederation play-offs.

La Albiceleste could yet finish as high as third with a victory on Tuesday as only two points separates that position from seventh-placed Paraguay, but Argentina nonetheless face the prospect of missing their first World Cup since 1970. Manager Jorge Sampaoli conceded “”the situation is not comfortable.” 

The international landscape looks a lot brighter for defending champions Germany and England after both teams secured their places in the tournament with respective wins over Northern Ireland and Slovenia on Thursday.
