The Argentine Under 23 National Team qualified for the final phase of the Pre-Olympic that grants two direct tickets to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games one date earlier, after beating Chile 5-0. Although Javier Mascherano's team has to face Uruguay this Friday, the Albiceleste already knows its home run rivals.

Before the last day Ecuador was classified but had a free date. Venezuela took advantage of that advantage and achieved a historic victory against Brazil 3-1 and thanks to that both Vinotinto and Verdeamarela made it to the final phase.
On the Zone B side, everything was closed in the absence of a date to be played. The Albiceleste team qualified alongside Paraguay, regardless of the result of the last match where Mascherano's team will face the Celeste and the Guaraní team will play against Chile.

How is the final quadrangle of the Pre-Olympic played?
The Argentine National Team, Brazil, Venezuela and Paraguay will face each other and the first two in the table will qualify for the Paris Olympics. In case of equal points, the tiebreaker criterion will be the result between the teams.
If it maintains the leadership of the group, the Argentine National Team will first face Venezuela and would close its participation against Brazil. Otherwise, if you qualify second, the classic will take place on the first day.
This final stage will begin on Monday, February 5. The second date will be played on Thursday the 8th, while on Sunday the 11th the qualifiers will be defined.
