The Argentina National Team is preparing to visit Venezuela for the South American Qualifiers and Lionel Scaloni must replace the suspended Cristian Romero and Leandro Paredes.
Diego Monroig anticipated in SportsCenter AM that the coach’s idea is to repeat the base that won the Copa América and given the few trials so far, only one with all the players, he will surely bet on what was done in Brazil.
A) Yes, the natural replacements for Romero and Paredes would be Germán Pezzella and Guido Rodríguez. The only drawback with the defender who has just returned to Betis is that he already has a warning and is at risk of not being able to be against Brazil. Gonzalo Montiel, Nicolás Otamendi, Giovani Lo Celso, Rodrigo De Paul and Lautaro Martínez are in the same situation.
In addition to the required changes, for Thursday’s meeting, doubts reappear that were raised throughout the Copa América on the sides: Montiel or Nahuel Molina, who could have some advantage due to his continuity and good moment in Udinese. And Nicolás Tagliafico or Marcos Acuña.
In this way, the Albiceleste National Team would form with: Emiliano Martínez; Gonzalo Montiel or Nahuel Molina, Germán Pezzella, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico or Marcos Acuña; Ángel Di María, Rodrigo De Paul, Guido Rodríguez, Gio Lo Celso or Nico González; Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martínez.
Argentina will visit Venezuela, this Wednesday from 9:00 p.m. (BUE), for another step towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
