The Qualifiers have resumed after an almost seven-month hiatus, and on this eighth date, they will include another highlight: the Colombian National Team will face Argentina in a critical match for both teams’ hopes. And it’s because, despite marching as Brazil’s sole guard, the Albiceleste do not want to be demoted, but the Cafeteros NEED a win to separate themselves from Uruguay and Paraguay and enter the classification zone.
DAILY POSITIONS – QUALIFYING 2022: ALL MATCHES
The last meeting’s concern was about the country’s social and political condition, which included widespread rallies against President Iván Duque. The national strike, which impacts a variety of activities, has been in effect since April 28, and various sectors have already warned, via social media, that they will mobilize in the stadium vicinity, similar to what happened before the Copa Libertadores match between River and Junior.
The good news is that the sanitary and epidemiological indications are positive, according to the Colombian Ministry of Health, and there may be a crowd in the stands. In theory, ten thousand permitted spots would be available, but this number may be reduced to five thousand. As a result, the government will have some 4,500 police officers on hand to secure the region in what will be a robust security operation.
