Brazil vs Argentina Prediction
Brazil will be hoping to repeat their Copa America semi-final triumph over the visitors previously in July 2019. However, they do experience some drawbacks in injury and lack of home ground.
PSG striker Neymar is the key player that is sidelined with injury, but Man City attacker Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino are likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders.
Also, Everton’s Richardson has shown grace in his form recently. Bayern’s newest addition, Philip Coutinho is set to influence the game in the ninety minutes. Real Madrid’s attacker, Rodrygo is likely to get his maiden senior cap against Argentina.
On the contrary, Brazil has been experiencing a winless run in their fixture recently. They have drawn the games with Colombia, Senegal, and Nigeria. Also, they went onto lose against Peru at home.
But based on their rivalry with the La Albiceleste and the Copa America title in hand, Tite will be confident to win the game.
The Brazilian skipper, Thiago Silva has commented that his team will not be afraid but rather proud to face Messi in the game.
Meanwhile, Argentina will be working on their previous win against Ecuador (6-1). They also have an injury with Roberto Pereyra and Rojo to miss the game.
Besides that, the Argentinians welcome Barcelona’s Leo Messi back to the starting line-up. Given Juventus winger Paulo Dybala’s fine form after replacing Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus, we are positive that Lionel Scaloni’s troops are going to grab something from the game.
Apart from that, they are playing at a neutral location in the game. Hence, Brazil will be playing without the home ground advantage in the clash. Even so, the Canaries are set to keep Messi and his boys at bay.
As such, it is safer to go with a double chance in the ninety minutes.
