Brazil is set to play without key players Neymar Jr. and Vinicius Jr. in their upcoming match against Argentina. Brazil’s World Cup campaign has not been impressive so far, with the team falling to 5th place in the table. On the other hand, Argentina is still at the top of CONMEBOL’s table despite losing their first match since the World Cup last year.
Brazil has struggled since their last World Cup win in 2002, losing 4 out of 8 games played since then. They will be without several injured players including Neymar and Vinicius Jr. for the upcoming match. Argentina, on the other hand, has had a successful run since the World Cup, with their only loss in 14 games coming against Uruguay in their last match.
For Brazil, new injury concerns arise after Vinicius Jr. was taken off in their last match against Colombia. Coach Tite will have to make some tough decisions regarding the squad, with potential call-ups for Joao Pedro and Gabriel Martinelli. Meanwhile, Argentina may see changes in their forward line, with Lautaro Martinez expected to feature alongside Julian Alvarez.
The match between Brazil and Argentina will not be televised, but it will be available for streaming on FanCode. The predicted line-ups for the match include Alisson, Emerson, Marquinhos, and Raphinha for Brazil, while Argentina’s line-up may feature E Martinez, Otamendi, and Messi.
