Argentina will have 4 defenders against Brasil.
I think that it is safe to assume that the two fullbacks will be Zanetti (right side) and Heinze (left side).
But who will the two center backs be?
Some of the options are:
1. Dominguez & Otamendi
2. Burdisso & Schiavi
3. Burdisso & Otamendi
4. Schiavi & Otamendi
5. Coloccini & Pareja
I know that looking at the list does not generate alot of excitement, actually more concern than anything.
I don’t think that Maradona will go with the Velez tandem because of their lack of national team experience.
If Burdisso is not fit then there is the horrifying possibility that Schiavi could be in the lineup.
I think that Otamendi has a good chance of being one of the starting center backs.
Coloccini & Pareja played alongside each other during the practice session today.
A backline of Zanetti, Schiavi, Otamendi and Heinze?
