Copa America: The big Semi Final Argentina Vs Brazil


Argentina's young and unpracticed group improved in its last two Copa America matches against Qatar and Venezuela because of a more grounded nearness in advance. In any case, the forceful group development that made Argentina fans cheerful is a long way from sure for Tuesday's elimination round against hosts Brazil.
The fundamental uncertainty for Argentina mentor Lionel Scaloni in a "superclasico" at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte is its hostile trio of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Lautaro Martinez.
None of Argentina's three beginning strikers are extraordinary markers that can fill guarded holes in midfield. In any case, none have the right to be on the seat.
"We will make changes in like manner to what we need. We are available to everything," Scaloni said Friday night after Argentina beat Venezuela 2-0 in the quarterfinals at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium. "We need to play similarly, without supposing we are confronting our archrival."
Scaloni has made changes in each match since he accepted the position after the World Cup in Russia. He is broadly expected to rehash the equation that has so far neglected to manufacture a dependable spine to the group, yet has enabled Argentina to progress to the Copa America elimination rounds.
Hotshot Messi is key, regardless of his as a matter of fact poor structure at Copa America. Veteran Aguero scored an incredible objective in the 2-0 win against Qatar and had a job in the two objectives against Venezuela.
Newcomer Lautaro scored two objectives in the last two matches and is currently a fan top pick.
In the event that Scaloni's history implies anything, Lautaro could be yielded.
The 21-year-old striker looked stunned, as did numerous fans, when he fell off for Angel di Maria in the second 50% of the match against Venezuela. Di Maria, who started Copa America as a starter, endeavored to fill his group's midfield and square Venezuela's hesitant endeavors to recoup. After the match he was singled out for applause by Scaloni.
"I trust it was great that Angelito entered, a child that merits acclaim since he is a standout amongst the most dedicated ones and was not playing," Scaloni said about Di Maria. "He can give us a great deal. He has the effect."
In the event that Argentina chooses to keep the three strikers that began the matches against Qatar and Venezuela, Brazil could get a genuine test without precedent for Copa America. Up until this point, the hosts have not yielded any objectives.
In any case, Argentina's forceful development additionally offers an opportunity for Brazilians to dwarf their opponents in midfield and rule with incredible passers of the ball like Arthur and Philippe Coutinho.
Scaloni could likewise make considerably more moderate changes by evacuating Lautaro or Aguero to offer approach to midfielders like Giovani Lo Celso and Marcos Acuna.
Messi implied Argentina should have progressively guarded concerns and utilize the counterattack against Brazil.
"They are at home, they need to demonstrate it to their fans," Messi said. "They have players that are with a similar mentor, similar thoughts."
Before the competition started, Messi was clear in saying his group was not among the top picks to win but rather now "it is all fair in this Copa America."
