This Tuesday, November 21, the most important classic on the South American continent at the national team level will be experienced once again. Brazil and Argentina will meet again in Rio territory, after the last time they faced each other at the Maracaná, the albiceleste won the Copa América in 2021.
The local team comes to this match with more negative things than positive things. Fernando Diniz’s team has just lost for the first time in its history against Colombia in the Qualifiers, and also received the complicated news about Vinicius Jr’s withdrawal from this match, after suffering an injury to the femoral biceps of his right leg. Given this situation, the ‘canarinha’ will have to resort offensively to Rodrygo, Raphinha and Endrick, who will be available for Tuesday’s match.
On the part of Argentina, the team comes into the match after surprisingly losing 2-0 to Uruguay in the Río de la Plata classic, and it was the first time the albiceleste lost again in the Qualifiers after 2016, when they lost for the last time. against Paraguay. For this occasion, Lionel Scaloni’s team will have its entire squad available for the classic, although with the doubt of not knowing whether to place Julián Álvarez or Lautaro Martínez as the starter.
The last precedent between Brazilians and Argentines occurred in the same stadium that they will play this Tuesday, the Maracaná, corresponding to the 2021 Copa América final, in which Argentina won with a goal from Ángel Di María and took the cup. for the first time in 28 years.
