Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni has his starting eleven in mind for the match against Australia in Beijing.
Lionel Scaloni has all of his players but there are two doubts to the starting eleven. Scaloni spoke at a press conference on Wednesday and stated that the team that would start is almost the same as the one which started the World Cup final.
The two names being mentioned in the Argentine media are Alexis Mac Allister and Nicolás Tagliafico. Alexis Mac Allister has a bit of fatigue and should he be benched, Gio Lo Celso is expected to start in midfield.
Nicolás Tagliafico also has a bit of fatigue and Marcos Acuña would start in his place. This would be the starting eleven for the match:
Emiliano Martínez; Acuña, Otamendi, Romero, Molina; Di Maria, Lo Celso, Enzo, De Paul; Julián Álvarez and Lionel Messi
