The present finds the two dissatisfied after a run of draws in the double knockout date, and prolonged by Albiceleste in their first match on Monday, from which they want to come out with a victory.

Old acquaintances on both sides anticipated a difficult match at the Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia, to which neither comes with an advantage in sight.
The ‘Maestro’ described Argentina as a “tough rival” with “very good individualities”, days after a press conference. And he valued the contribution of Messi, a fundamental piece of the opponent, not only in individual actions but also as an enabler.
The plan to counteract it is “to put a balanced team that can contribute a lot in defense and a lot in attack”, without generating imbalances, the coach Celeste detailed then.
The strengths and weaknesses of those led by Lionel Scaloni were condensed at the beginning of this month when they visited Colombia, when in an initial burst they scored two goals in ten minutes and ended up tied.
