Team news

Emiliano Martinez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso look set to start for Argentina after the chaos that engulfed them in the last round of international fixtures, when Brazilian health officials attempted to deport them from the country minutes after their match against Brazil kicked off.

Lionel Messi will likely be joined by Atletico Madrid’s Joaquin Correa in attack once again, with Paris Saint-Germain teammates Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes strong contenders for a starting berth, too.

For Uruguay, Luis Suarez started up front on his own against Colombia, with Edinson Cavani on the bench. The last time they faced Argentina, though, veteran manager Oscar Tabarez went with both strikers, and could return to a 4-4-2 here.

Predicted line-ups

Argentina: Martinez; Montiel, Romero, Otamendi, Tagliafico; Paredes, Lo Celso; Di Maria, Messi, Gomez; Correa.

Uruguay: Muslera; Nandez, Godin, Gimenez, Vina; Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino, De Arrascaeta; Suarez, Cavani.


Argentina 5/7

Draw 11/4

Uruguay 28/5


Uruguay haven’t beaten Argentina since 2013, and their ageing side may struggle to contain the hosts’ increasingly dynamic-looking attack. 2-0 to Argentina.
