Brazil and Argentina will clash for the second time this year just a few months after the unforgettable 2021 Copa America final. That time, La Albiceleste emerged victorious at the iconic Maracana to claim continental glory. On Sunday, these South American giants will be head-to-head on Matchday 6 of the Conmebol 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. The game will be broadcast in the US by fuboTV.
The hosts are riding on a perfect seven-game winning streak in the road to Qatar 2022. Tite's boys seem to be unbreakable on their way to the World Cup but Argentina already knows what stopping Brazil is like.
Lionel Scaloni's men will return to the land where they conquered South America in July. However, the reigning Copa America champions are not even close to underestimating La Canarinha and they know this derby will be as complicated as it gets.
Brazil confirmed lineup
La Verde-amarela received bad news ahead of this international triple-fixture. The Premier League clubs didn't release their players, leaving nine stars out of Tite's plans. Anyway, they managed to claim another win against Chile.
Another setback was that Marquinhos got suspended for accumulating yellow cards. Besides the PSG captain, Tite would have everyone else on board. This is how Brazil would line up: Weverton; Danilo, Eder Militao, L. Veríssimo, Alex Sandro; Lucas Paqueta, Gerson, Casemiro, Everton Ribeiro; Gabriel, Neymar.
Argentina confirmed starting 11
For the upcoming match, Scaloni has great news as Cristian 'Cuti' Romero and Leandro Paredes are eligible again. Fortunately, superstar Lionel Messi was apparently not seriously harmed by Adrian Martinez's horrific tackle, so he would be in the starting eleven again. This would be the Argentina lineup: Emiliano Martinez; Gonzalo Montiel, Cristian Romero, Nicolas Otamendi, Marcos Acuña; Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Giovani Lo Celso, Angel Di Maria; Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez.
