Argentina won all three of their group matches but they were not as dominant as many expected. They started out with a struggling victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina in their opening game 2:1. Then they recorded two more narrow wins over Iran (1-0) with a very late goal scored by Messi and Nigeria (3-2). Argentina have looked defensively unstable, conceding one goal to Bosnia, two to Nigeria, and a couple of extremely good chances to Iran which they were unable to take.

Aguero is out for Switzerland after being subbed off against Nigeria and has been ruled out for the remainder of the tournament. This should see either Palacio or Lavezzi handed a place in the starting lineup to assist Lionel Messi up front. Higuaín should keep his place up front, despite failing to score at the competition. Messi has scored four of the team’s six goals in their three narrow wins.

Switzerland will be glad that they ended their group stages on a high after they thrashed Honduras when Xherdan Shaqiri scored an impressive hat-trick. Before of that win, the Swiss recorded a win and a loss. They started by beating Ecuador 2-1, a game they trailed 1-0 at half time, and were defeated 5:2 by France, a match where they were never at the races. .

Hitzfeld will be without the services of Mario Gavranovic and Von Bergen, but otherwise has a full squad to choose from. Fabian Schär is also expected to keep his place in the starting XI having impressed in the last match. Dzemaili should start from the bench once more, with Inler, Xhaka and Behrami featuring from the off in midfield.

This will be the seventh international meeting between the two sides, with Argentina remaining unbeaten till now. Messi scored his first international hat-trick the last time Argentina and Switzerland met, in a friendly in 2012.


Argentina (4-3-3): Romero; Zabaleta, Garay, Fernandez, Rojo; Gago, Mascherano, Di Maria; Lavezzi, Messi, Higuain
