Singapore vs Argentina
International Friendly Match
Date: Tuesday, 13th June 2017
Kick off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: The National Stadium.
What a crash it was for all the football fans in Singapore when they heard that Lionel Messi was going to skip the Tuesday’s friendly from The National Stadium in Singapore.
Either way, the show must go on and the Lions will still have the chance to enjoy battling the star-studded team and the likes of Paulo Dybala, Angel Di Maria, Mauro Icardi & company in what will be the battle between David and Goliath.
The hosts won’t come in the game in the best of moods after an unexpected slip up against Chinese Taipei in the Asian Cup Qualifications.
The Lions were off to a decent kick off when they claimed a point from Bahrain and they had hoped to back it up with the home win over the weakest side in the group.
However, they conceded two times to make it seven games on the trot without a single victory.
Albiceleste will thus have a nice chance to boost up their confidence ahead of crucial WC qualifiers in September.
The new head coach Jorge Sampaoli is off to a nice start with the victory over Brazil, but Los Gauchos did show plenty signs of vulnerability and were lucky to pull out that narrow win against a mixed lineup of Selecao’s.
Singapore vs Argentina: Head to head
Singapore’s players will have the chance to enjoy the occasion of meeting one of the strongest sides in the world for the first time in their history.
Singapore vs Argentina: Prediction
Even without Lionel Messi on board, the gulf in quality is just huge and we can expect the Argentines to score 5+ goals with ease this Tuesday at The National Stadium.
The margin of the victory will be the only thing in question here. Knowing Sampaoli, we somehow believe it will be as high as possible.
