Brazil beat Argentina 3-0 in Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier to remain on top of the South American qualifier group at the expense of Argentina who are now in a tight corner and would need a magic to restore their hopes of qualifying to the World Cup.
The win is their fourth consecutive home win against Argentina, and it also wipes away the tears which Brazilians experienced after after their shameful loss to Germany 7-1 at Belo Horizonte during the 2014 World Cup. A new memory has been rekindled.
Argentina played with their magical wizard Lionel Messi, but it seemed he could not help the team out as they continue to struggle against the host without it yielding any result.
With this current result, Argentina are still seated at the play-off zone, but will have to turn things around when they host Colombia next week if they must keep their hopes of being in Russia alive.
