ARG vs COL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The all South American clash in the international friendly match between Colombia and Argentina is expected to be a thrilling spectacle. Both the teams resurrecting themselves after a poor world cup run and march into a new era as the Copa America 2019 is just months away. Colombia would want to come out of their penalty loss in the world cup as England thrashed them to meet Croatia in the semi finals. After the world cup campaign was over for them, they fired their coach and that position is yet to be filled but they are under Arturo Reyes, who deserves a mention after he showed what he can do with the Colombian team when they beat Venezuela. At one pointy in that match, they were trailing by 1-0 and in the second half, they looked a different team altogether. Making passes and creating chances every time they got the space, showed the hunger they have for some international success. They would be coming into this game preparing to celebrate for another win against a clueless Argentina side that would be without Lionel Messi.
Argentina’s world cup run didn’t go as planned. They hardly managed to get past the group stage and then fell short to France. It was an eventful game but Lionel Messi’s Argentina had to exit the world cup. Their world cup exit also saw the exit of their coach Jorge Sampaoli after just a year putting Lionel Scaloni and Pablo Aimar on charge of the national team. The duo would be happy with the results they have got in their previous game against Guatemala. Though, the opponent never felt like a threat but a clean 3-0 win over them would surely give enough confidence to head into this game. However, the management has missed out on many players from the world cup squad which includes Lionel Messi as well. The reason being, La Albiceleste is eyeing the Copa America tournament and the players in the world cup squad should be given a break from international action for some time. But they have to be on their toes all the time because Colombia is ferocious than Guatemala and the depth of their defense will be tested in this game. An open and intriguing awaits everyone as both these teams would lock horns looking for a perfect start to a new era.
