Venezuela (currently 7th with 21 points) vs Paraguay (2nd, 30 points)
Ecuador (4th, 23 points) vs Uruguay (6th, 21 points)
Colombia (8th, 20 points) vs Chile (3rd, 27 points)
I'm in Guayaquil for the Ecuador vs. Uruguay match although the game is in Quito later (where I was this morning!) the Uruguayan team were still here...the Ecuatorians have got a psychological boost already due to the Uruguayan team having their kit stolen! [Goal.com]
Update: well, it's set up for a thriller, as these things often are: Venezuela lost to Paraguay 1 - 2 so are out of contention and Paraguay 2nd to Brazil only on goal difference (a BIG difference); Chile fought off Colombia 2 - 4 and so claim 3rd overall with a final game against Ecuador who lost 1 - 2 with the last (controversial penalty) kick of the game against Uruguay; an undeserved loss for Ecuador IMHO as for the first half and most of the 2nd it was like Man Utd vs. Wimbledon. On Wednesday if Uruguay beat Argentina they claim the 4th and last automatic qualifying spot whilst Argentina will take 5th...a win for Argentina or a draw and those positions are reversed...BUT, still in with a mathematical chance is Ecuador who, if they win can claim that 5th spot and a chance in a play-off; if they win by 5 (!!!) they could even claim 4th IF the other two draw.
"This is arguably the most important match on the continent this weekend."
