Lionel Messi of Argentina, Neymar of Brazil, Luis Suarez of Uruguay among other stars in South America will later this Tuesday get to know the roads of their various teams to Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The draw for the preliminary competition takes place at the headquarters of CONMEBOL in the Paraguayan city of Luque.
The qualifying tournament will produce four definitive slots while a fifth team will attempt to get through to Qatar 2022 via intercontinental playoff.
The qualifying competition will follow a round-robin format, with the ten teams playing each other home and away between March 2020 and November 2021.
The 10 CONMEBOL member associations will all go into the same bowl, with the Argentina and Brazil balls both being a different colour: blue.
Into another bowl will go balls containing the position of the teams, from one to 10. Two of the balls will again be a different colour, this time yellow, for teams four and five.
The draw will start with Argentina and Brazil being allocated to positions four and five, with the blue and yellow balls being drawn for that purpose.
The draw will continue with the remaining balls until all ten positions have been filled.
Draw procedure ensures that no team will have to face Argentina and Brazil in the same double-header.
