Argentina Team News
All four Argentina players who were cautioned against Chile have been suspended for this match, with Nicolas Otamendi, Nicolas Tagliafico, Rodrigo de Paul, and Leandro Paredes all out.
In brighter news for Scaloni, he may anticipate Guido Rodriguez, Emiliano Buendia, Lucas Ocampos, and Maxi Meza to return, although COVID-positive Alexis Mac Allister is still out, and Papu Gomez is a doubt owing to ankle soreness.
With Paredes and De Paul sidelined, Rodriguez’s return to the midfield will be welcomed, while Marcos Acuna and Lucas Martinez Quarta are expected to be brought into the backline.
Colombia Team News
Colombia has its own suspension issue to deal with, as Yerry Mina has been suspended for an accumulation of bookings and will return to Everton.
As a result, William Tesillo will most likely fill in for Mina with Davinson Sanchez at the back this week, with Falcao hoping to win his 99th cap for the national team.
Rueda will almost certainly shuffle the pack up top in try to break his team’s goalless streak, with Granada’s Luis Suarez and Miguel Borja both lurking in the wings.
Argentina possible starting XI:
E. Martinez; Molina, Martinez Quarta, Li. Martinez, Acuna; Di Maria, Lo Celso, Rodriguez, Ocampos; La. Martinez, A. Correa
Colombia possible starting XI:
Ospina; Cuadrado, Tesillo, Sanchez, Mojica; Rodriguez, Barrios, Uribe, Diaz; Falcao, Borja
