    • Good assist, but vs Maribor, i still don’t see any of our wingers can destroy Barcelona several times, or be UCL final MVP like Di Maria did etc, but the Correas have the potential. Tomorrow i will see with open eyes the Sporting-Barcelona match, Acuna has the chance to be like Di Maria, and Battaglia to be dominant against Barca midfield. Lose is a bad result at home.

      • Di Maria didn’t destroy Barcelona alone. Besides, what are you talkng about? This is prehistory. Di Maria is nowhere near now to that level even on weak French league where most of teams is 2 levels below PSG. Let alone his games in NT recently. For people like you and this stupid logic some plaers are automatic starters just because of their famous, proud history.

        “Good assist, but vs Maribor”. To be briliant against weak teams – that’s speciatliry of Di Maria though. Not so long ago you were talking about J.Correa: who is Correa? just player of mediocree Sampdoria. Nowhere near to NT level. Or something like that. Now heis Sevilla player. Now he is scoring in CL, making driblings that only Messi may do. But you always find a fault:
        “Good assist, but vs Maribor”. Are you stupid? Somehow he had also goal against Liverpool 2 weeks ago. Is that also coincidence? No matter Liverpool or Maribor – ill will always makes blind for pluses.

        “Tomorrow i will see with open eyes the Sporting-Barcelona match, Acuna has the chance to be like Di Maria, and Battaglia to be dominant against Barca midfield. Lose is a bad result at home”.

        Hahaha. Do they (Acuna or Battaglia) have to win against Barcelona to prove they are worth to be called up? No. Everyone knows Barcelona is much better team. If you think you can make fool of someobdy because of this proposed logic, you are wrong. Make fool of yourself. Was Di Maria winning against Barcelona when playing for Benfica Lisbon? So stop with these stupid inadequate and arbitrary standards to devaluate young, promising players.

        This is the same what you doing with River wins. When they lost in Bolivia, you are celebrating. Then River won 8:0 and ooooohhhh. What you are doing? What is you strategy? To depreciate their win by talking something like: “I want to see them against Real Madrid?” No man, there’s no fool here – everyone knows not only River but every European club would lost to Real Madrid. And what? Is that mean there’s no good player behind Real Madrid?

        So, once again, stop with this childish strategy of depreciating Argentina potentiall all over the world. How old are you? 15?

          • Was Di Maria winning against Barcelona when playing for Benfica Lisbon?

            Nothing to say. As you see above clearly double standards it’s your domain.

            By the way. I know you will watch Barcelona. Barcelona, Real, PSG, Bayern, Manchester City – that’s all your live football. The rest is on Whoscored. Isn’t it?

  1. As desperate as i may sound, for now i just want and NEED Argentina to qualify. We can focus on tweaking our gameplay and picking better players once we’ve accomplished our primary objective which is to qualify.

    Good news is the number of players Peru wont be able to field due to suspensions. The players as follows ; Defender Christian Ramos,midfielder Paolo Hurtado and Christian Cueva and their striker André Carrillo.

    • The bulk of Peruvian players play in their local leauge and their FA asked the players’ teams to release them early in order to have enough time for the game. Since almost Argentina’s players are based in Europre I think it’s very difficult for the AFA to convince those European teams to allow their players to go early for the national duty.

      • I know. AFA would not stand a chance against the powerful European clubs. Therefore I think Sampaoli should play the entire Boca team. It is their homeground, they train day in, day out and know each other very well. Have Messi, Dybala, Aguero and Icardi on the bench and bring 3 of them as soon as the Peruvians are tired.

  2. The local players haven’t been annouced yet. I think Sampaoli is analyzing so many things and wants to take some very good decisions on whom to pick from the local league. Is it possible to come out the list today or we have to wait for some more days although there is no enough time for Sampaoli to think more?
