Argentina vs. Brazil and Germany left for 2019 friendly games

49

Argentina’s opponents for the rest of the year consist of eternal rivals Brazil and long time foe Germany.

Lionel Scaloni has at least two big tests ahead of him this year. While the match against the Basque Country has been cancelled, one thing that is still confirmed is the game against Germany. The rematch of the 2014 FIFA World Cup final is set to take place in Dortmund on the 9th of October.

There is no news yet as to who Argentina could play in the second game in October with the Basque Country match no longer taking place.

For the games in October, coach Lionel Scaloni has already confirmed that he would not be calling up any players from either River Plate or Boca Juniors, seeing as how both teams will be playing against each other in the Copa Libertadores.

Brazil will be one of Argentina’s opponents for November. The match is rumored to be taking place on November 14 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It would be a rematch of one of the 2019 Copa America semi-finals.

The second game in November is rumored to be against Saudi Arabia, although no confirmation for that match.

  1. I just hate English Media..
    Buendia was definitely the best player today..However in commentary and post-match, they just ignored him!!
    That’s I saw for most of the argentine players.
    Even though Aguero is best player for City and scoring lot of goals for many years, they never gave him proper credit, now they found sterling,de bruyne.
    My dream is when argentina will play England in WC and thrash them 6-0!!

  2. Emi Buendía’s game by numbers vs. Man City:

    60 touches
    23 duels contested
    9 recoveries
    5 crosses
    5 take-ons
    4 tackles made
    3 chances created
    2 assists

    We know he is creative but we also can’t overlook his role in pressing and helping in defence + he is a good crosser too

  3. Sebarish,

    win by 3 goals is not often case in Argentina league. This time Arsenal did such difference against Union. Nicolas keep his form still. I like Alvarez Suarez and Kaprof too.

  4. I supported Scaloni always. But this is going to be a big test for him. A reality check. Against Brazil and against Germany.
    He never managed Argentina against European teams and two times he already failed against Brazil scoring zero goal..!

    Scaloni’s stats:
    Total match : 17
    Win : 10
    Draw: 3
    Lose : 4
    It looks good at first sight when considering he’s building a team. But when you check the opposition, Argentina will win with any manager and with any players..almost any of those matches that Scaloni won…!
    Argentina won against Guatemala, Iraq, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Qatar, Venezuela and Chile. Almost all…poor teams.
    So I am just considering only the status against South American teams.
    Total match : 9
    Win : 2
    Draw: 3
    Lose : 4
    Total scored: 4
    Total conceded: 8
    It’s not impressive at all. At least we can say it is improved..as we have won 2 and drawn 2 in the last 5 games.

    Eagerly waiting for Scaloni’s performance against Brazil and Germany. It will be a deciding factor for his future.

  5. Argentina’s midfield look balanced with palacios…Paredes…lo Celso .
    Against Germany Ascacibar or Marcos Senesi in the midfield that is going to be a solid midfield
