Lionel Messi scores as Argentina win vs. Brazil


Lionel Messi scored the only goal of the match for Argentina in their 1-0 win vs. Brazil.

It was the Argentina captain who had the only goal of the match as Lionel Scaloni’s team lifted the Superclasico trophy. Argentina were awarded a penalty kick in the first half.

Messi stepped up and while his spot kick was initially saved, he did manage to score the rebound which gave Argentina the win. Here was the starting eleven:

Andrada; Foyth, Pezzella, Otamendi, Tagliafico; Lo Celso, Paredes, De Paul, Ocampos; Messi, Lautaro

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni made the following substitutes:

Marcos Acuna for Giovano Lo Celso, Nicolas Gonzalez for Lucas Ocampos, Guido Rodriguez for Leandro Paredes, Lucas Alario for Lautaro Martinez and Nicolas Dominguez for Rodrigo De Paul.


  1. ARGENTINA was the better team & played well as a “TEAM UNIT”.
    This new look Argentina is getting better & better which is a POSITIVE SIGN – Vamos Argentina !!!!

    We need to focus more & achieve better finishing in front of the goal as we could have beaten Brazil with atleast 3 goals.

    Finally looks like this Team will be the ones who will fetch ARGENTINA a silverware very soon. Good Luck for FIFA World Cup 2022 !!!

  2. It’s proved to be a good idea to hand Argentina to lionel scolani and keeping him even after losing copa america is just a brilliant decision made. In future I want to see him given more authority on the team selection and the style of play. Now forwards and midfielders look really decent. We gotta work really hard on defense and golies.
    Last night 2nd half was really good for us. But I love the German games 2nd half more because after a big deposit the boys held their heads high and literally bullied the Germans to snatch out a point. Really amazing stuff we haven’t seen for long.
    Let this form be the stone we stand to go for glory at Copa America and World cup as well.
    Vamos Argentina

  3. The only flaw I though yesterday was Lo Celso and its okay because his natural position is more of no 10 player and the LM position seemed sloppy and wasted. Overall Great performance Huge Confidence Boost
    I have been saying De Paul is a gem from last year because I watched him at Udinese. He is a fighter like Arturo Vidal and more creative too. Paredes is improving. I wont criticize Foyth because he is good for his age.
    Wanna See the same team vs Uruguay just Dybala and Aguero instead of Messi and Lautaro. (Just a front change and if it works well we have 2 good front 2 connections)

  4. Not a big trophy but wait….

    – Its Still International. (With Argentina) 👍🏼👍🏼

    – Its a gritty victory against Brazil ✌🏻✌🏻

    – 1st time with any sort of trophy after many years 👏👏

    – This may break the jinx for Messi and Argentina 💪🏼💪🏼
