Argentina Draw To Venezuela, Uruguay Hammer Paraguay

South American giants Argentina avoided a shock defeat on Wednesday morning when they came from behind to draw 2-2 with Venezuela in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The Albiceleste went into the game leading the CONMEBOL table with 14 points, while their hosts were rock-bottom, having only claimed one point after eight games.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup finalists were without their superstar Lionel Messi, who was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Argentina found themselves trailing Venezuela in the first half, after Juanpi scored his first senior international goal for his national team in the 35th minute.

Things initially did not get much better for the Argentines, who soon found themselves 2-0 down thanks to a Josef Martinez strike in the 53rd minute.

Edgardo Bauza's men eventually fought back just five minutes later, when Lucas Pratto scored on his second appearance for his country.

Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi saved Argentina's blushes late in the second half, when he popped up with a goal in the 83rd minute, ensuring that his team got to share the spoils on the night.

Uruguay 4-0 Paraguay  

After losing to Argentina last week, Uruguay bounced back with a dominant 4-0 win over Paraguay in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani scored a brace on the night, while FC Barcelona star Luis Suarez netted once, along with Cristian Rodriguez.
