Despite the political crisis in Peru, Argentina’s final World Cup qualifying match of the year is expected to be played as scheduled in Lima on Tuesday.

Peruvian President Manuel Merino has resigned from his position, creating turmoil in the country and forcing Argentina to cancel its training sessions in the capital. But the country’s authorities assured South American soccer body CONMEBOL and FIFA on Monday that the match will be allowed to go forward as planned.

All 10 teams in the South American group will be in action on Tuesday, with Brazil playing at Uruguay, Ecuador hosting Colombia, Venezuela welcoming Chile and Paraguay hosting Bolivia.

The matches will all be played in empty stadiums because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Brazil leads the group with nine points from three matches, followed by Argentina with seven, Ecuador and Uruguay with six, and Paraguay with five.

The top four teams will automatically qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fifth-place team will go into an inter-continental playoff.
