Spain vs Argentina

International Friendly

 

ESP vs ARG MATCH PREVIEW:

Euro 2016 saw the end of a very successful managerial reign in the recent football history as Vincente del Bosque left Spain after winning the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European championship.

The La Roja replaced their most successful manager with a like-for-like replacement in Julen Lopetegui who also prefer to play aggressive and a possession-based football. Under the former Porto manager, Spain showed improvement and finished the World Cup qualifying campaign with 9 wins and a draw out of the 10 they played in the competition.

Spain are undefeated under Lopetegui and have won 12 and drawn five under his managerial reign so-far.

But Argentina are a different opposition and could test Spain’s defense more frequently than what the World Champions Germany failed to achieve regularly in their last game. Also, Lionel Messi is expected to start at Wanda Metropolitano, which will surely give the likes of Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique a hard time in the match.

ESP vs ARG TEAM NEWS:

Spain:

Alvaro Morata is out injured again, while Manchester City playmaker David Silva had left for Manchester due to some personal reasons.

There are no other fresh injury concerns for Julen Lopetegui, but he is expected to make some changes to the side that played a 1-1 draw against Germany.

We are expecting Diego Costa to start up front, replacing Rodrigo Moreno who scored the goal against the World Champions.

While the likes of Nacho, Rodri, Saul, and Marco Asensio may be given the starting berths in today’s match.

PROBABLE XI (Please Choose your team wisely as both coaches are expected to hand several players their debut)

Gea (GK), Carvajal, Ramos, Pique, Alba, Koke, Rodri, Iniesta, Isco, Costa, Asensio

 

Argentina:

Argentine manager Jorge Sampaoli will be without the services of many first-team players for this match.

Sergio Aguero is still recovering from the knee injury and has been ruled out, as are Eduardo Salvio, Manuel Lanzini.

Marcos Rojo is a doubt but should be ready if called upon.

Sevilla central-midfielder Ever Banega could be drafted into the starting XI by Sampaoli.

Gabriel Mercado could start at his usual right-back position after Fabricio Bustos was given his debut against Italy.

PROBABLE XI (Please Choose your team wisely as both coaches are expected to hand several players their debut)

Romero (GK), Tagliafico, Rojo, Otamendi, Mercado, Banega, Mascherano, Celso, Pavon, Higuain, Messi

 

Key Players:

Spain – Iniesta, Costa, Asensio

Argentina – Lionel Messi

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Spain are well equipped with stars in their ranks. In fact their midfield and defense is one of the best in the world, if not the best. In midfield, they have Iniesta, Koke, Isco, Alcantara, while the defense is led by Ramos and Pique, arguably two of the best modern era defenders in the world.

While Argentina are set to be without some key first-team players, but with Lionel Messi expected to start, visitors shouldn’t be afraid of their formidable host.

A 1-1 draw is our prediction.
