How Argentina could line up against Brazil

Sports Mole looks at how Argentina could line up for their blockbuster Copa America semi-final against hosts Brazil in Belo Horizonte.

Argentina will be bidding to make the final of the Copa America for the fifth time in the past six editions of the tournament when they take on hosts and bitter rivals Brazil in Belo Horizonte on Wednesday.

Lionel Scaloni's side have been far from their best throughout the competition so far but still find themselves on the brink of another final following victory over Venezuela in the quarters last week.

However, La Albiceleste have not lifted the trophy since 1993, finishing as runners-up on all four occasions they have reached the final over the past 15 years.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how they could line up as they attempt to end that run of heartbreak.



Possible ARG XI vs. BRA

Out: None
Doubtful: None

Argentina have no new injury concerns ahead of this match and are expected to name a largely unchanged side following back-to-back 2-0 triumphs.

One player who will be hopeful of having worked his way into the starting XI is Giovani Lo Celso after he came off the bench to make sure of the win in the quarter-final against Venezuela.

The Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United target is likely to replace Marcos Acuna in the side, while the likes of Angel di Maria and Paulo Dybala may once again have to settle for a place on the bench.

Captain and talisman Lionel Messi, for whom international glory remains elusive, will start in a number 10 role just behind the striking duo of Sergio Aguero and Lautaro Martinez, the latter of whom has scored in Argentina's last two games after working his way into the team.

One position which does seem up for grabs is right-back, where Scaloni has used three different players during his four games so far. Tottenham's Juan Foyth featured there against Venezuela and may have done enough to keep his spot ahead of Renzo Saravia.
