A first half goal from Ezequiel Lavezzi was cancelled out by Lucas Lima in the second period as Brazil escaped with a 1-1 draw against Argentina in Friday’s (November 13) South American World Cup qualifying match.

The match had originally been scheduled for Thursday but torrential rain in the Argentine capital had forced officials to postpone the game for 24 hours.

Argentina dominated the first half but although Brazil perked up when Douglas Costa replaced Ricardo Oliveira in the second half they would consider themselves lucky to secure a point.
