Argentina plays its first match under new manager Jorge Sampaoli in a friendly against Brazil in Australia. With Lionel Messi in the squad but no Neymar for Brazil, the two will play early on Friday morning for bragging rights. Bringing the best out of Messi at international level will require Sampaoli putting the right mix of attacking players around him. It’s something previous Argentina managers have consistently struggled to do.
Sampaoli will have the luxury of having Lionel Messi on his squad against a short-handed Brazil team without Neymar, Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Ederson, Marcelo, and Roberto Firmino.
As for Argentina, it was mentioned earlier that Jorge Sampaoli will deploy a 3-4-2-1 formation with Lionel Messi and Paulo Dybala playing behind Gonzalo Higuain. The midfield is going to feature Angel Di Maria, Ever Banega, Lucas Biglia, and Eduardo Salvio. Finally, the Argentina defense will have goalkeeper Sergio Romero with a three-man defense of Nicolas Otamendi, Emmanuel Mammana, and Gabriel Mercado.
Brazil manager Tite decided to give more time off to his players since they have already secured a spot in the 2018 World Cup unlike Argentina.The quality comes from Chelsea forward Willian, along with Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho. Of course, new Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli can call on Neymar’s club team-mate Lionel Messi to help get one over on the old enemy.
