Argentina rumored line-up; DEMICHELIS expected to start


There will be a few players missing for Argentina come Tuesday night’s World Cup Qualifier against Paraguay in Argentina.

Argentina go into Tuesday’s match in Cordoba against Paraguay seeking a win to stay in the World Cup position in the table. The three points are a must after having drawn their last two matches. With that said, there will be some modifications, according to reports. Here’s the rumored line-up:


The big changes would be at the back and in midfield with Gabriel MERCADO, Martin DEMICHELIS (yes, DEMICHELIS) and Mateo MUSACCHIO coming in for Pablo ZABALETA, Nicolas OTAMENDI and Ramiro FUNES MORI. In midfield, Ever BANEGA comes in for Matias KRANEVITTER.


  1. not a surprise.

    this is the line-up as that i am expecting on yesterday post. only mercado for zabaleta.
    obviously bauza have no idea what to do anymore, so he just put most experience players, most well-known players, and most talented players, and he’ll be hoping those players will win the match for him.
    at least tata has some formula what to do and the players do like what he said.
    with bauza, we simply saw players have no idea what the heck they must do, because simply their coach doesn’t know what to do either.

  2. This mofo continues the tradition of NT coaches ruining the national team and to me this bastard looks like the worst of them all. This son of a whore Bauza calls up Pizzaro, who is playing at a great level and yet prefers to play sissy Kraneshitter, who can’t even get into his club side starting eleven. And Correa? How on earth does this most overrated Argentine find himself playing for his country when he plays like an amateur and gets like a few mins to play for his club? This is sick. This qualifying campaign should have been and given us time to play all cards right to go for the WC well drilled and prepared but no, we are gonna make it the hard way and by the time the WC comes we will be making desperate last min call ups and along with our usually injury and fitness battling stars we’ll be made to suffer as usual. With all the talent at our disposal we don’t need this misery. Bauza you shit eating piece of shit.

  3. Oh man, this is insane. Did he not learn anything from the game vs Peru? Dybala and Aguero are wasted in this formation! We need Banega further up the pitch, plus Pizarro next to Mascherano, Mas for Rojo. Tata is starting to look like a genius next to clueless Bauza!

    I would personally prefer this line-up


    Mercado Demichelis Musacchio Mas

    Pizarro Mascherano

    Lamela Banega Gaitan


  4. Better if he plays mascherano as holding mid, dramatic and banega together in attacking midfield with Aguero on the left wing, dybala on right wing and higuain up front. I still want dybala to be up front with higuain

  5. I just want to tell Bauza….you remember copa match…Argentina 2-Paraguay 2…if you did nt see…pls go and watch before this lineup.

    It will end up in 5-1-4 and again there will be no mid…and you will be exposed very badly…worst than that match.

  6. It seems Pizarro won’t play any single minute despite being call up. If not the loooong injuries of Augusto and Biglia he would be put aside for November qualifiers.

    • This information is hard to process to me not due to its content-but how Bauza is growing in to Talkinho of National team coaches. He was supposed to grab the 6 pnts from the last two relatively easy matches and what he is doing is talking,talking……..

      Cover your a** in the field not to Media.

  7. Still not good.dybala on the right and useless aguero as 10 won’t work.


    Mercado. Demi. Musacchio. Mas.
    Pizarro. Masch.

    Lamela. Dybala. Correa.

  8. Happy not see Zaba and Krane.still wondering why Aguero is there in stead of one more mid field player especially when the team is having Dybala and Higuein duo up front.
