Javier Mascherano’s Argentina U20 team play Peru on Wednesday in the Sudamericano.
Mascherano’s team find themselves playing a match in which they have to win. Presently in fourth place in the group, it’s the top three that qualify and they have yet to win a match.
Peru are last place in the group, having lost their opening three matches but a win for Argentina keeps their chances alive of qualifying for the next round and ultimately qualifying for the U20 World Cup. But they will be without Agustín Giay who has suffered a grade 1 sprain to his left ankle and will continue to be evaluated by the Argentina medical team.
Here are the current standings in the group:
Paraguay, 3 matches: 7 points
Brazil, 2 matches: 6 points
Colombia, 2 matches: 4 points
Argentina, 2 matches: 0 points
Peru, 3 matches: 0 points
