Argentina host the feisty neighbours Uruguay in a World Cup qualifying clash between good friends Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. More details at

M1 Santos vs Gremio: Key relegation battle in Brazil where Gremio remain in the bottom three despite Luiz Felipe Scolari taking over as coach and Santos sit just above the relegation places.

M2 Bolivia vs Peru: Peru have won the last four clashes between these South American countries, including 3-0 on their last visit to La Paz, and are eight games unbeaten in clashes between the two sides.

M3 Venezuela vs Ecuador: The last three meetings between the countries all ended in draws, including a clash in June at the Copa America in Brazil.

M4 Colombia vs Brazil: Brazil have three win and two draws in their last five clashes against Colombia, having beaten them 2-1 last in June at the Copa America. Their last loss to Colombia was at the 2015 Copa America, hosted in Chile.

M5 Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids: Minnesota have won four of their five previous home games against Rapids, as both clubs seek to firm up Major League Soccer play-off places.

M6 Costa Rica vs El Salvador: Costa Rica have surprisingly flopped at home in the World Cup qualifiers, losing to Mexico and being held by Jamaica. El Salvador have won once in 32 past visits to Costa Rica.

M7 Jamaica vs Canada: The Reggae Boyz and Canada have played against each other 16 times previously with six wins apiece and four draws.

M8 Panama vs USA: Panama have beaten the Americans only twice in 24 past meetings and never at home.

M10 Chile vs Paraguay: Paraguay have won three in a row over Chile, including a 3-0 shock triumph in Santiago during the last World Cup qualifiers.
