Brazil and Argentina will face each other off at King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, on what it’s described one of the most emotional matches in the soccer world.
Even though Neymar’s not able to give his contribution to his national team, the Tite-led squad is filled with top players from the best clubs in the world. However, their last four matches have produced no wins, as they’ve drawn three and lost one against much worse ranked teams. History tell us that Brazil is stronger in the “Super Clássico” as they have won 46 games, drew 27 and lost 37 in 111 games, but without their main superstar and the return of Lionel Messi to the “albicelestes” the picture could change. In their last twenty games, the opposition hasn’t scored a single goal in thirteen of them.
As for Argentina, they’re currently on a good run of results, scoring 12 goals in their last three games. With Leo Messi back, it’s to expect that those numbers only go up, as the six-time Ballon d’Or winner provides an insane playmaking ability along a scoring threat that only Cristiano Ronaldo can match. Even though Argentina’s attacking line is phenomenal, much of their success comes from the back, as twelve of their seventeen wins in 2019 saw them keep a cleansheet. It will be interesting to see how they cope with their strong opposition attacking line during the match.
Both these teams have the potential to make a great match out of this contest, as the quality in the squads are top notch. Even though it’s a friendly, and both possess an excellent defensive record, I’m expecting some goals from this matchup.
