Wed - November 18, 2020
Brazil’s perfect and Argentina’s right on its heels, just as many expected at the outset of CONMEBOL qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
The rest? Well, that’s where the surprises live.

Paraguay remains unbeaten but has given points to the bottom two teams, while Venezuela beat Chile at home for the first time, and Ecuador absolutely unloaded on Colombia.
Here’s what happened, plus the standings after four matchdays in South America.
Uruguay 0-2 Brazil
Brazil is a perfect 4-0 after handling Luis Suarez-less Uruguay in Montevideo.
Gabriel Jesus set up Arthur for Brazil’s first goal, and Renan Lodi cued up Richarlison for the second as the score was settled by halftime.
The cagey affair had just 11 shots, with the victorious visitors taking six and putting the match’s only four efforts on target.
There was also some Red Devil-on-Toffee crime, as Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani was sent off for this filthy tackle on Richarlison.
That’s something to note when Everton and Man United meet in a League Cup quarterfinal on Dec. 23.
