Sunday 5 September
Italy demolished Switzerland in Rome in June on their way to winning the European Championship but now have to visit their neighbours who will be itching for revenge in this World Cup qualifier. More details at www.soccer6.co.za
M1 FC Dordrecht vs VVV Venlo: Both clubs have a single victory from their first four games of the new Dutch season. Venlo have dropped down to the second division for the first time in four years.
M2 Belgium vs Czech Republic: Belgium remain the top ranked team by FIFA despite going out in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals. The two countries met in March at the start of the World Cup qualifiers and drew 1-1.
M3 Switzerland vs Italy: Italy handed Switzerland a 3-0 thumping in June on their way to winning the European Championship. Now the two meet in World Cup qualification.
M4 Brazil vs Argentina: Brazil host Argentina for a second time in two months. In July, Argentina beat them 1-0 in Rio in the Copa America final in Rio de Janeiro.
M5 Gabon vs Egypt: This is the key match in Group F of the African qualifiers, where only the group winner will advance. Gabon should have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on hand to lead the line and Mohamed Salah might yet play for Egypt.
M6 Ecuador vs Chile: Ecuador have lost four of their past five clashes against Chile, including at Copa America in June.
M7 Paraguay vs Colombia: Colombia have won on five of their last six visits to Paraguay, including matches in the last two World Cup qualifying campaigns.
M8 Uruguay vs Bolivia: Uruguay’s home record against Bolivia is seven wins out of seven. Bolivia have conceded four goals in each of their last two games in Uruguay.
M9 El Salvador vs Honduras: Derby match in World Cup qualification where the two sides share the same group with the USA. Honduras won 4-0 in their last clash two years ago in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
M10 Peru vs Venezuela: Peru are unbeaten in their previous five meetings with Venezuela, winning two and drawing three.
