Argentina welcome Colombia to the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes on Tuesday evening in what is the penultimate home match in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying for the Albiceleste.

Lionel Scaloni's side have already achieved their objective of booking a berth at this winter's showpiece, and can enjoy their final matches of the tournament free of pressure.

By contrast, Colombia's form has fallen away, with Los Cafeteros failing to score in their last six qualifiers and now sitting three points off an automatic qualification spot.

Ahead of the game, GOAL brings you everything you need to know, including how to watch, team news, odds and more.

They may have already qualified for the World Cup, but Argentina will look to continue their momentum with a strong performance in front of their own fans.

They looked fully committed in their weekend match against Chile, a fiery encounter which saw them claim three more points and, against an out-of-form Colombia side, Argentina will be confident of claiming their sixth home win in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying tournament.
