Argentina national team Lionel Scaloni has most of his players set for the starting eleven against Australia in the Round of 16 at the World Cup.
Lionel Scaloni is not expected to make many changes to the starting eleven for Saturday’s match. Per reports out of Argentina, it will be Rodrigo de Paul, Enzo Fernández and Alexis Mac Allister who will start, the same players which started in the 2-0 win vs. Poland.
Julián Álvarez will replace Lautaro Martínez, just as he did against Poland. It will be Lionel Messi and Álvarez up front and with no Ángel Di María, it will be one of Ángel Correa, Papu Gómez or Paulo Dybala replacing Di María in attack.
Nicolás Otamendi and Nahuel Molina will start. Per a report by ESPN, the coaching staff has not yet decided on Lisandro Martínez or Cristian Romero to start as they are worried about possible fatigue on Romero’s part. This would be the rumored eleven:
Emiliano Martínez; Molina, Otamendi, Romero, Acuña, De Paul, Enzo, Mac Allister; Lionel Messi, Julián Álvarez, Ángel Correa or Papu Gómez or Paulo Dybala
