Live feed

 Full time: Brazil 0-1 Argentina

95' A poor strike as the match official calls time.

93'  A less exciting second 45' it has to be admitted as Messi lines up a free-kick.  

91' 3 minutes of time to be added. Longer I'd imagine after the Gabriel Jesus delay.

Chamge for Brazil, the injured Gabriel Jesus (stretchered off) will make way for Taison 

88' Gabriel Jesus recieving medical attention after a collision with Otamendi. The player is still down and it doesn't look great.

86' Brazil refuse to give up and press with Rafinha looking dangerous on the right flank. 

Brazil keeper Weverton pulls off a save at the MCG this evening. 

83' 95.569 is the official attendance at the MCG this evening. A very decent turnout !

Paulinho off and Giuliano on for Brazil. Banega off for Argentina with Lanzini the player taking his place. 

 

Rafinha

79' First card of the game for the Brazilian in what has been a match played in a good spirit given the rivalry between both teams. Messi checked by Rafinha who earms a card for his barge.

Paulinho carded 

76'  Correa fires a tame shot at the Brazilian goal-mouth in a rare forray forward for the Argentina strike-force who are now trying to run the clock down and secure what would be an importante morale boositng win and positive debut for Sampaoli. 

76' Mexican Wave time again at the MCG

Mercado off / Mammana on for Argentina

73' It has to be said that we've seen little from Leo Messi this evening. Watch him score a cracker now we've said that !

Rafinha on for Fagner (Brazil)

70' Gabriel Jesus about to head home when the Willian Jose cross is beautifully intercepted by the Albiceleste rear-guard. Brazil deserve more at this stage with Tite's side the better in the second period.

68' Brazil free-kick, Coutinho takes but fails to get the ball to dip in time.  

Dybala off and Guido Rodriguez on for Argentina

67' Gabriel Jesus wins a dangerous free-kick for Brazil as Coutinho steps up.  

Liverpool's Coutinho has been one of the better Brazilian player's in action tonight at the MCG.

Agusto off - Douglas Costa on for Brazil

62' Incredible double chance for Brazil as Gabriel Jesus rounds the keeper and casually slides the ball onto the post with an open net beckoning, Willian Jose then fires the loose ball off the post. Incredible series of events as Brazil to contrive to cock it up on two occasions. 

59' Great shot on target from Coutinho but the ball strikes Paulinho on it's way to the Argentina goal. Unfortunate for the Brazilian side as they up the tempo and press the Argentine outfit deeper. the ball breaks to Gabriel Jesus who fires into the side netting.   

58' Willian Jose yet again finds space to launch a counter and feeds Gabriel Jesus but the City player is hounded out by sky and white shirts as the move loses it's impetus.

57' Di Maria tries his luck as a breaking ball falls to him in the area. His left footed effort takes a ricochet and Argentina win a corner.

52' Tagliafico on for Argentina,  José Luis Gómez off

Packed MCG....

49' Free-kick for Brazil as Willian Jose drives his effort into the wall. Fagner takes a dive in a poor attempt to con the ref but the Australian official is having none of it.

August 31 is the next time the COMNEBOL sides are back in competitive action. Brazil will face Ecuador at home whilst Sampaoli will face a tricky away test to Uruguay.

46' Argentina get us underway for the second half...

Higuain off and Correa on for Argentina at the break. The Juve striker has been quiet this evening in Melbourne.

Gabriel Mercado celebrates his goal on the stroke of half time at the MCG

 Half time round-up: Brazil 0-1 Argentina: A late tap-in from Sevilla's Mercado has Sampaoli's side ahead at a packed MCG as South American rivals Brazil and Argentina come head to head. Despite the game lacking the needle and frission of a "Clasico Sud-Americana" the match has been played at a decent tempo with chances falling to both sides but Argentina having more initiative. Di Maria has impressed as has Coutinho for the Brazilian side with a dicreet performance so far from Barcelona ace Lionel Messi. 

45' HALF TIME: Brazil 0-1 Argentina

45' Question marks being asked about the Sevilla player's positioning as he tapped into an empty net as the match official calls time on the half.  Argentina the better side and deserve to be ahead at the break. Di Maria bossing the show for Sampaoli's side.

45' Gooooooooooooooooooooooooool Argentina take the lead as Gabriel Mercado puts Sampaoli's men ahead   

43'  Dybala goes inches away from opening the scoring with a delightful left footed placed shot. Argentina deserve to be ahead here !

Di Maria in action at the MCG tonight

41' Now Brazil probe the Argentina defence with Fagmer delivering a testing cross which was admirable cleared by the "Albiceleste" rear-guard. 

39' Splendid half volley from Di Maria forcing Weverton into action. Possibly the brightest player in a sky/white shirt this evening.  

http://www.livescore.com/worldcup/conmebol-qualification/  This is how the COMNEBOL WC 2018 qualifying group looks. Brazil 1st and Argentina 5th ! 

 

35' It's Mexican Wave time at the MCG. 

34' Filipe Luis tries a long range left footed drive but his effort fails to trouble Romero in the Argentina goal.

32' Both teams impeccably observed a minutes silence pre-game.

30' Di Maria sportingly kicks the ball so Gabriel Jesus can be treated after a robust challenge on the City player. A hint of tension creeping into the game now as Paulinho and Di Maria have a brief spat. This may be a friendly but it is Argentina and Brazil

27' A bright game here at the MCG, obviously lacking the bite of a competitive match but with enough action to keep the 90.000 plus crowd more than entertained.

22' Chelsea's Willian Jose breaks free and finds Coutinho who takes a touch too many and fires his shot against an Argentina defender with the ball eventually falling into the grateful arms of  Sergio Romero. Poor rear-guard action from "La Albiceleste" !

20'  Possession after 20': Brazil 38% - 62% Argentina

19' Agusto goes close for Brazil with the Beijing Guoan striker seeing his shot drift just over the Argentine crossbar. 

17'  Good play from Coutinho testing the Argentina defence who are forced to clear for a corner. Better now from Brazil pushing the men in blue and white deeper despite stll yet to create a clear-cut chance.  

14' Dangerous free-kick awarded to Brazil as chants of "Brasil, Brasil" bellow out from the crowd. Argentina clear the danger and the ball heads all the way back to the Brazilian goal. 

10' Argentina much the brighter team in the opening first ten minutes of action 

 Argentina starting line-up

8'  Di Maria collides with Paulinho and needs medical attention. Now limping but looks okay to continue. 

6' Dybala feeds Di Maria and the PSG player fires against the post. Great move by Argentina. 

4' Today's game is part of the "Brazil Global Tour" (sponsored by Chevrolet) . A game next week against Australia is the second match in the "Down Under" dates.

2' The MCG pitch looks a tad small?? Possibly due to the modification of a traditional cricket ground but the playing area looks "tight"!

1' Off we go at a packed MCG. The men in yellow get us underway

A minutes silence being held pre match

National anthem time in Melbourne

Match official is Mr Beath from Australia

Argentina: Sky blue and white stripes, black shorts and socks, another classic !

 Brazil: yellow shirts, blue shorts and white socks...a classic in the world game !

Both teams are in the tunnel with kick-off imminent in Melbourne. The Jorge Sampaoli era with "La  Albiceleste" starts here !

...and with less than 10' to kick-off the CBF (Brazilian Federation) confirm their team ! 

Gremio & Internacional being represented by the Brazilian fans in Melbourne today

Leo Messi will be sporting the new Adidas Nemeziz Tango 17 boots today 

The Brazilian side warm up as kick-off looms at the MCG

 Argentina XI: Romero, Banega, Biglia, Gomes, Dybala, Di Maria, Higuain, Mercado, Messi, Otamendi, Maidana.

Brazil starting XI: Weverton; Fagner, Thiago Silva, Gil, F.Luis; Paulinho, Fernandinho, Augusto; Coutinho, Jesus, Willian

Plenty of Brazil fans in the stadium with just 30 minutes to go to kick-off

Argentina fans arriving at the MCG 

This is Jorge Sampaoli's first match as the manager of the Argentine national team - his dream job. The man in the opposite dugout, Tite, has won each of his nine matches since taking charge of Brazil in the summer of 2016. It's a baptism of fire.  

Javier Mascherano celebrated his 33rd birthday yesterday
