Argentina rumored line-up vs. Mexico, Dybala or Mac Allister

17

A few places in the starting eleven remain up in the air as reports are circulating about the tean which will start Tuesday’s game.

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni reportedly still doesn’t have his starting line-up set in stone with a few question marks remaining. With goalkeeper Franco Armani out and Agustin Marchesin playing vs. Chile, Boca Juniors goalkeeper Esteban Andrada will get the start.

Gio Lo Celso of Tottenham has already been ruled out of the match due to a knock received against Chile while Nicolas Otamendi is back in Manchester as was pre-agreed.

Here’s Argentina’s rumored eleven:

Esteban Andrada; Gonzalo Montiel, Germán Pezzella, Marcos Rojo or Lucas Martínez Quarta, Nicolás Tagliafico; Exequiel Palacios, Leandro Paredes, Marcos Acuña; Rodrigo De Paul, Lucas Alario or Lautaro Martínez, Alexis Mac Allisrer or Paulo Dybala.

  1. I won’t be surprised to see a line-up in the 1st WC qualifier (March 2020) that has not played together before. We need to work towards somekind of stability, players that understand each other, tactics, running patterns, etc. By keep changing we’re not growing as a team. We have been in adjustment phase way too long. Start the same line-up and see if 2 or 3 subs during the match improve the team or not. Sigh…

  2. Gud luck against Mexico.

    To be frank, I used to wait for an Argentine NT match even if it was a friendly. But nowadays, I don’t know, have not that much interest in these friendlies. It’s nothing to do with any particular players etc. It’s Argentina NT. It should be far more exciting. May be the same opponents is causing that too.

    But I think this matches don’t lead to anything positive in any tournaments. Hope qualifiers starts soon. Which will be far tougher test than these meaningless friendlies.

  3. When I look at this 11, I think Scaloni has finally defined his tactics and formation, a 433 that can be converted to 4231 and 343. In the midfield, the formula will be 1 regista(Paredes, Nico Dominguez), 1 half CM/defensive winger(De Paul, Acuna, Zaracho) and 1 creative CM(Lo Celso, Palacios, Lanzini). In attack, 1 half 9 able to play as winger(Messi, Dybala, Lamela), 1 forward(Aguero, Lautaro, Gaich) and 1 winger-forward(Joaquin Correa, maybe Angel Correa). Seems to me that the weak point is still the winger part. That’s why Scaloni need to move De Paul in that role and use Acuna to replace him in the midfielder role. I don’t think that will be the long term solution. I strongly believe that Vargas is currently the best player for this role.

  4. Why this useless Pezella. Rojo and Lucas Martinez will be the solid wall vs Mexico. Mexico is very organised team. Acuna is useless too can not use his right foot. But Acuna is good crosser but Rojo would be best for left back. Scaloni.call get this in your head.
