Four versus Five

The standings in South America's qualifying table are as follows:

Paraguay 24
Brazil 21
Chile 20
Argentina 19
Uruguay 17
Colombia 14
Ecuador 14
Venezulea 13
Bolivia 12
Peru 7

The top four spots in South America earn a direct berth to South Africa, and right now that would be Paraguay, Brazil, Chile and Argentina.

The fifth-place team, which is Uruguay, would play CONCACAF's fourth-place team in a playoff for another World Cup spot.

The fourth-place team right now is Mexico.

Uruguay-Mexico for a World Cup spot. Yes, there is a long way to go, but that's one possible scenario Mexico would face if El Tri continues to show poorly in qualifying.

Who is the home team? Or is it neutral? If so, where?

Right now Mexico is not beating Uruguay if the game is held anywhere, except maybe a street in Ciudad Juarez.
