Brazil v Argentina: Recommended Picks


Brazil come into this game as favourites after four successive wins, while Argentina have fallen apart and picked up just two points against Venezuela, Peru and Paraguay during Lionel Messi's absence. Brazil have never lost a World Cup qualifier on home soil, a record that spans over 50 matches!


Argentina are expected to select a cautious approach to this game, so drafting the likes of Mascherano, who has averaged 99 points over the past four games, compared with an attacker such as Di Maria who has averaged 74 in the same time.

When should I play my Power-up?

Tite's Brazil like to fly out of the blocks in search of a lead, an exciting approach which has seen them score within the first 15 minutes of the last three qualifiers. The Canarinho will be looking to avenge their humiliating 7-1 World Cup loss at the hands of Germany, in the first game at the Mineirão since the semi-final.

Play your Double Points or Sharpshooter early in the game on your best attacking Brazilian player or alternatively play your Double Points/ Defensive Rock on your best Argentinian defender, as they will look to rack up a lot of clearances and blocks to keep the Brazilians at bay.

Who should I draft first?

Neymar is Brazil's best player on UFL, averaging a huge 184 points over his last three games for Brazil. If someone drafts him before you, don't worry, Jesus will save your draft!

Gabriel Jesus, the future Manchester City striker, is a guaranteed starter in attack and has averaged 91 points a game, with four goals in the previous four games.

Disclaimer: Draft with your gut. UFL is not at fault if Messi scores a hat-trick and you decided not to draft him!
