Brazil and Argentina. the outcome is in the favour of BRAZILSince the first match in 1914 till the last match on 28th sept.2011,the two football teams met each other 98 times,Brasil won 39,Argentina 35,Draw 24.Brasil scored 152 goals,Argentina 150 goals.

This is consedering matches finished with penalty kicks as DRAW,but if we consider it as win and loose ,then Brasil is having 42 wins,Argentina 36,and Draw in 20 only.

The above statistics and records are from liable,unbiased,and respectifull sources , such as

IFFHS and RSSSF websites .

-The International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) - Sources: Historia de la Selección Argentina 1902-1997 (El Gráfico) Argentina, Historia de la Selección de Fútbol, desde 1893 hasta 1991 (R. R. Ediciones) Cien años con el fútbol. Asociación del Fútbol Argentino. AFA. 1893 Centenario 1993 (AFA) Sólo Fútbol Anuario '85 (issue 1) Sólo Fútbol Anuario '86 (issue 2) -Brazilian Sources: Arquivo da Seleção Brasileira (Marcelo Leme de Arruda) O Almanaque do Futebol Brasileiro (1995, Marco Aurelio Klein and Sergio Alfredo Audinino) Tira-Teima Placar N°1 Tudo o que voce sempre quis saber sobre Futebol (November 1997, Placar [Brazil]) Other Sources: International Football in South America 1901-1991 (Miguel Angel Bestard, Michael Robinson & Mike Ross) The Guinness Book of World Soccer (2nd edition [1995], Guy Oliver) Enciclopedia Mundial del Fútbol (Editorial Océano - Viscontea) -

Even FIFA and Argentina football association used to admitt that Brasil won more,but changed their records after the friendly match held in Doha on 17th oct.2010.

Argentinian famous football players used to admitt that Brasil is supremacy over Argentina.

Mr. Grondona,head of Argentina football association,announced in 2010 that Brasil always proofed that they are the strongest and the best in football world ,and Argentina comes behind Brasil.

And here is a comparison between both teams which clearly show the brasilian supremacy

Brasil 5 worldcups, Argentina only 2.

Brasil 3 confidrations cups,Argentina 1 only.

Brasil 11 southamerica u17 cups ,argentina 2.

Brasil 10 southamerica u20 cups,argentina 4.

Brasil 8 roca cup,argentina 4.

Brasil 1 superclasico,argentina zero.

Brasil 5 u20 world cup , argentina 6.

Brasil 3 u17 worldcup,argentina zero.

Brasil 6 southamerica pre Olympics gold,Argentina 2

Brasil dominates all countries in the world with no exceptions(86 countries),but argentina(70 countries) is dominated by italy,germany,england,denmark,china,Cameroon,and other two countries.

Brasil stayed number one in fifa ranking for 15 years in total out of 18 years(ranking age since 1993),but argentina only 9 months!!!

Brasil stayed number 1 in ELO ranking for 35 years out 58 years ( ELO age) followed by hungary,but argentina never been number 1 for 58 years!!

Brasil is number 1 in FIFA all times ranking since it is created till now.

Even copa america ,because Brasil host it less (4times less),and absent more(6 times more) than argentina,that's why argentina took it more!!Uruguay overcomed Argentina now,!

Brasil achieved a unique achievement between 2002 till 2005,by winning all world and continent football championships for all ages(men,u15,u17,and u20),NO other country in the world did that.

Brasilian clubs defeated argentinian clubs in 207 occasions,and loose in 156 occasions,and Draw took place in 42 occasions thru history.

Pele is the best player ever by FIFA.

FIFA all times worldcups team selected by fifa experts,out of 22 players,14 are Brasilians,2 only from argentina.

Brasilian league is selected always to be the best league in the world,followed by England league.

Brasil is the highest scoring team in the world cups with 210 goals ,and the lowest recieving goals , but argentina is the highest in getting red and yellow cards!!

Brasil is the most popular team in all times!.

Brasil in football is from different planet !

Lionedas,the famous Brasilian player in the past ,is the one who created the double kick.

Physics scientests in europe held a confrence in 1998, just to study how to apply physics laws on the free kick of the Brasilian player Roberto Carlos in Brasil France friendly match in 1997.

And so many things to mention.Brasil is supremacy over the whole world not only Argentina.
