    Ascacibar Romero Martinez midfield for real ? Ultra defensive, 3 pure DM. Why ?

    Ascacibar—Romero or Martinez—Lo Celso well balanced,

    Ascacibar-Lanzini-Lo Celso and Espinoza upront is a little bit offensive, but not much. The first one is a disaster.

    Transmission of the game on Fox Sports.

    In starting line up It’s rather alternative ROmero or Lo Celso than Martinez or Romero. More offensive with Lo Celso.

      Do u have any live streaming link?

      1. Gonzalo

        I see some in Roja Directa

  3. Gonzalo

    When the game starts?

    Lautaro Gianetti is great CB. My only fear is about his position. Both Cuesta and Gianetti are LCB in their clubs. Now Gianetti must play as RCB.

  5. Gonzalo

    SOto is right balanced defence-offence. Gomez sometimes is crazy ultra offensive one. At least he was in Lanus. Running like Znetti/Sorin.

      Realy?!..i like that..so its call original full back..

    Balanced line up! All department are equally talented and strong.You can’t say Correa-Calleri-Lanzini more talented than Asca-Martinez-Celso or Gomez-Gianetti-Cuesta-Soto or even Rulli.

      Interestingly enough, perhaps for the first time since Sorin and Zanetti, we have two attack-minded full-backs simultaneously in Gomez and Soto, both of whom are very good dribblers too. Let’s see what happens.

      1. Mafioso

        Soto is a bit skinny,but has a lot of stamina which is one of the most important skill of a fullbakc.

        1. EnganChe

          Absolutely, both are dynamic full-backs. Skinny can be corrected, send him to the gym to lift weights 🙂 or send him to an EPL club

      2. Mafioso

        The fullbacks who don’t contribute in attack are a curse for the team.That’s why Chile dominated the 2nd half.

    Rulli; Gomez, Gianetti, Cuesta, Soto; Ascacibar, Martinez/Romero, Lo Celso; Correa, Calleri and Lanzini.

    Strong line-up, vamos Argentina!

    Roy, you did not include Lanzini in the line-up
