After the good victory in Venezuela, the Argentine National Team has already turned the page to focus on the classic with Brazil, for the South American Qualifiers.
The albiceleste team arrived in San Pablo on Friday morning and it was only in the afternoon-night that it was going to have its first regenerative practice, that is, Lionel Scaloni will only have one training session to define the eleven.
The coach’s idea, according to information from Diego Monroig in SportsCenter, is to repeat the team that won the final of the Copa América 2021, just against Brazil.
The points to take into account for that are, first and foremost, see the status of Lionel Messi, after the hard blow he received against Venezuela. In principle, it only has a cut and will not be studied. The coach had already anticipated in a press conference that, if Leo is physically well, they will count on him for the three commitments of the FIFA Date.
On the other hand, Cristian Romero and Leandro Paredes have already fulfilled the suspension and could return in place of Germán Pezzella and Guido Rodríguez, respectively.
The only doubt that would arise is if Gonzalo Montiel, who comes without activity, enters through Nahuel Molina, of good work in the last meeting and his club.
In this way, the initial XI of the Albiceleste in San Pablo would be: Emiliano Martínez; Gonzalo Montiel or Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, Nicolás Otamendi, Marcos Acuña; Ángel Di María, Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Giovanni Lo Celso; Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martínez.
Argentina will visit Brazil next Sundaygo from 4:00 p.m.
