Brazil v Argentina betting preview  

Brazil manager Tite has selected a pretty strong squad

Brazil were outright winners favourites at Russia 2018 after winning their group and beating Mexico 2-0, but they crash out in the quarter-finals against Belgium. Anyway, la Canarinha have won six of their last seven games in all competitions. They have comfortably beaten Saudi Arabia, El Salvador, and the United States in their last three outing, keeping three clean sheets and scoring 9 goals in the process. The Seleçao took four points from two WC Qualification games against Argentina (3-0 win at home and a 1-1 draw away).

Brazil boss Tite ies expected to shuffle the pack around a bit. Coutinho could drop into midfield to allow Richarlison a place out wide, with the Everton's striker joining Gabriel Jesus and Neymar upfront. Lucas Moura Roberto Firmino provide further options. In defense, Marcelo is a doubt because of a muscle injury while Joao Miranda and Marquinhos should form the central pair. In midfield, Renato Augusto and Casemiro should feature from the off. Alisson should get the nod over Ederson for the goalkeeper berth.

Argentina have not taken their strongest squad but there's plenty of talent

Argentina are yet concede a goal ever since taking charge after the World Cup debacle in which they lost to Croatia 3-0 and drew 1-1 against Iceland in the group stage. After their disappointing 4-3 last 16 defeat to eventual world champions France, Argentina have recorded two draws against Guatemala (3-0) and Iraq (4-0) and a draw against Colombia (0-0). Defense has been a concern this summer but new manager Lionel Scaloni, who took charge in place of Jorge Sampaoli, looks to have fixed their issue. Anyway, this will be his first real stern test as manager of the Albiceleste.

Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni is without a host of high-profile names, including Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Man City's star Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain. He could make a handful of changes to the XI that started the 4-0 win over Iraq last time out. Mauro Icardi is likely to replace his club mate Lautaro Martinez upfront. The likes of Eduardo Salvio and Giovani Lo Celso should also feature form the off, wth Franco Vazquez and Rodrigo De Paul making room. Leandro Paredes should anchor the midfield while Nicolas Otamendi and nicolas Tagliafico should start at the back at the expense of Ramiro Funes Mori and Marcos Acuna.
