Well, the big game is almost a week away and it is time to begin the speculation about the starting lineup.
So who will be in the starting eleven against Brasil?
The GK will definitely be Andujar.
And the rest?
Though this wouldn’t be the ideal team in my opinion, I think Maradona will go with:
D – Zanetti
D – Burdisso
D – Otamendi
D – Heinze
M – Maxi Rodriguez
M – Mascherano
M – Veron
M – ?
F – Messi
F – Aguero
Argentina will go with a 4-4-2 formation and with the news of Jonas Gutierrez’s injury, there is the question now of who will play on the left side of the midfield.
There aren’t too many options so it could be Datolo. There are rumors that Maradona might call up Sebastian Leto or Eduardo Salvio.
The other question is who will partner with Messi upfront? will it be Aguero or Tevez? or will it be a center forward like Lisandro Lopez or Milito?
Who should Maradona go with upfront to take on Brasil’s big central defenders?
Analyzing the players called up and the lineup possibilities, whoever ends up playing, it will be one of Argentina’s worst starting lineups for a Brasil game in many years.
