The World Cup in Qatar is already on the horizon. The big teams are fighting for a ticket to the 2022 tournament.
Everything points to Tabarez putting Araujo in the starting eleven. He will play in the centre of defence alongside Godin and Coates, as Gimenez is injured and therefore unavailable for the clash.
Araujo will therefore have the burden of stopping Leo Messi, who will lead Argentina. A demanding mission for the defender.
The Uruguayan wished with all his might at the time that Messi would renew his contract with Barcelona. "He must stay because Leo is Barca," he said at the time.
It was not to be and destiny separated them. Now one plays for Barca and the other for PSG. This morning, each in his national team, the two will face each other this time as enemies.
