Argentina vs Colombia: Copa America 2019 Key Players
Two heavyweights meet in the most intriguing game of the opening round of the Copa America 2019
It’s Lionel Messi and company trading tackle with James Rodriguez and Los Cafeteros.
Argentina’s latest bid for international silverware begins when they take on Colombia at the Itaipava Arena in their debut match of the 2019 Copa America.
Analyzing both the teams:
It is now 26 years since Argentina last won a major trophy of any description, with the 1993 Copa America their last piece of notable silverware.
The expectation is for Messi and Sergio Aguero to be the guys, while this may finally be the time we see more responsibility for Paulo Dybala.
EXPECTED 11 : ARMANI, SARAVIA, PEZZELLA, OTAMENDI, TAGLIAFICO, LO CELSO, GUIDO RODRIGUEZ, PAREDES, MESSI, AGÜERO, DI MARIA
This is a really deep team whose downfall always seems to be discipline in defense.
Yerry Mina and Davidson Sanchez is as talented as any central duo in the cup after Brazil and Uruguay, and the attack looks solid with likes of
Radamel Falcao, James Rodriguez, and Juan Cuadrado.
The last two Copa America meetings between the two sides have ended goalless, and Colombia are winless against Argentina in this competition since 1999
EXPECTED 11: Ospina; Arias, Sanchez, Mina, Tesillo; Cuadrado, Barrios, Uribe; Rodriguez, Falcao, Muriel
Considering their quality in attack, there is a high possibility for both sides to find the back of the net, We are just giving the edge to Argentina because of the Messi Magic.
