Tuesday night, it will be Argentina against Venezuela and we want your predictions!
If Thursday night’s World Cup Qualifying match against Uruguay was more of a “can’t lose”, then Tuesday night’s World Cup Qualifying match between Argentina and Venezuela is a “must win” for the Albiceleste. The legendary Estadio Monumental is the venue, Argentina against Venezuela is the match, the stars will be on show but who will win? On paper, logic predicts that Lionel MESSI’s men will pick up the three points. However, it’s never that easy. Argentina only managed a 2-2 draw in Venezuela last year and they cannot afford to drop any points this time around.
As we reported yesterday, Argentina’s starting line-up was already confirmed. Once more, Lionel MESSI, Paulo DYBALA and Mauro ICARDI will start together. Here’s the line-up:
Argentina against Venezuela line-up
ROMERO; MASCHERANO, FAZIO, OTAMENDI; ACOSTA, PIZARRO, BANEGA, DI MARIA; MESSI, ICARDI, DYBALA
or (different formation)
ROMERO; MASCHERANO, FAZIO, OTAMENDI; DYBALA, PIZARRO, BANEGA; MESSI; ACOSTA, ICARDI, DI MARIA
Argentina coach Jorge SAMPAOLI appears to be going all in with a very attack minded team. With that said, what do you think the result of the match will be? Is it going to be 3 points for Jorge SAMPAOLI’s men? Will Venezuela pull of a shock and get the victory themselves or will the match end in a draw?
