Per reports coming out of Argentina, coach Jorge SAMPAOLI has two line-ups in mind for the match against Thursday.
It looks as though SAMPAOLI will go for either a 3-3-3-1 or a 3-4-3 for the game with a few changes in players. The first eleven would see Gabriel MERCADO, Marcos ACUNA and Cristian PAVON int he starting eleven. The second one would see Gabriel MERCADO, Marcos ACUNA, Enzo PEREZ and Cristian PAVON in.
In a 3-3-3-1:
CABALLERO; TAGLIAFICO, OTAMENDI, MERCADO; ACUNA, MASCHERANO, SALVIO; PAVON, MESSI, MEZA; AGUERO
In the 3-4-3:
CABALLERO; TAGLIAFICO, OTAMENDI, MERCADO; ACUNA, MASCHERANO, PEREZ, SALVIO; PAVON, AGUERO, MESSI
Either line-up would be different from the one which started against Iceland which saw a flat midfield of Lucas BIGLIA and Javier MASCHERANO.
