In the most awaited clash in football world Brazil-Argentina are going to face other in the first semi-final of Copa America tomorrow morning (Bangladesh Time.) The match will take place on 6:30 AM, wednesday.
For the match, Argentine coach Scaloni was giving little away about team selection, although he’s expected to stick with much the same line-up against Venezuela when the semifinalists beat them 2-0 in the quarter-finals.
That means Messi and Aguero would line up alongside Lautaro Martinez in attack.
Scaloni said, “Aguero will play, I’m saying that because I’ve read there’s a doubt, so to be clear. No-one’s confirmed for the team, not even Messi. Only Aguero.”
Aguero has had a mixed tournament so far, having feckless in the opening 2-0 defeat to Colombia before he was dropped for the 1-1 draw with Paraguay. But he made a goal-scoring return to the starting line-up in the 2-0 defeat of Qatar and was involved in both Argentina’s goals against Venezuela. Little was expected of Argentina before the tournament but they have been improving and this clash between the continent’s two heavyweights is eagerly anticipated.
Although the pressure is on Brazil “because they’re the hosts and have something to prove in front of their fans,” said coach Scaloni.
