Argentina 2-0 Bolivia

Argentina beat Bolivia 2-0 in Cordoba to become the only side along with Colombia to win both their March qualifiers. The goals came from Gabriel Mercado, who scored his second in three starts, and Lionel Messi, who struck from the penalty spot to take his international tally to 50, just four behind his country’s all-time leading marksman, Gabriel Batistuta. (29 MAR 2016)

Chile 1-2 Argentina

Comprehensive payback it was not, but Argentina went a small way towards settling the score on their return to Chile’s Estadio Nacional for the first time since being beaten in the Copa America final, prevailing 2-1 to move into the automatic qualification berths. After going behind, La Albiceleste turned the game around with two goals in the space of five minutes, Di Maria curling home exquisitely with his right foot before Mercado opened his international account. (24 MAR 2016)
