At 5 am on June 15th, Beijing time, the first round of Group A of the 2021 America’s Cup ushered in the first match. At the Nielton-Santos Olympic Stadium, Argentina will face Chile.
These two teams are definitely old enemies in recent years. In the history of the America’s Cup, the two teams have faced each other 29 times. Argentina won 19 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses. The two games that Argentina lost happened to be the Copa America finals. In the 2015 and 2016 finals, Argentina lost to Chile in penalty kicks. In the 2019 bronze medal game, Argentina defeated Chile 2-1. Messi and Medel were both sent off because of a conflict. In the previous world preliminaries, Argentina drew 1-1 at home with Chile.
Aguero is expected to start
Argentine media TyC pointed out that Scaroni will adjust the starting lineup to a certain extent. The biggest change is in the position of the left wing. Ocampos was not called up and Di Maria was temporarily abandoned. In this position, Aguero and Nicolas Gonzalez are likely to start. If Aguero starts, the Argentine formation will be more like a 442. Messi serves as the midfielder, Aguero and Lautaro form a double arrow. If Nicolas Gonzalez starts, Argentina’s formation will be 433, and his position will be closer to the wing.
Argentina loses the best defender in Serie A
In the last round of preliminaries, Serie A’s best defender Christian Romero scored for Argentina early, but left the field due to injury. His injury and retirement also made Argentina finally tied by Colombia 2-2. Although Christian Romero has entered the Copa America squad, it is difficult to recover in time before the first game. The vacancy left by him will be filled by Quarta.
Sanchez truce due to injury
The unfavorable news for the Chilean team is that Alexis Sanchez is injured and he will miss the entire group stage. The good news for the Chilean team is Vidal’s comeback. Because of the positive new crown, Vidal missed the previous two world preliminaries, and now his test results have finally returned to negative. Argentine goalkeeper Armani’s new crown test result has finally turned negative. However, Emiliano Martinez has performed well in the previous two world preliminaries, and Armani is likely to temporarily give up Argentina’s number one position.
Messi (Argentina captain): I always respond to the call of the national team. My biggest dream is to win the championship for Argentina. I have almost done it many times, I will continue to work hard, I will always fight for this dream.
Argentina (4-3-3): Emiliano Martinez/Mondiel, Quarta, Otamendi, Tagliafico/DePaul, Paredes, Loscelso /Messi, Lautaro, Aguero
