One of the most sought after football rivalries in international fixture, Brazil and Argentina will face off against each other in a friendly in what will be a repeat of this year’s Copa America semifinal.
Date: November 15, 2019
Time: 10:30 PM IST
Venue: King Saud University Stadium, Saudi Arabia
Brazil vs Argentina: Match Preview
Brazil will be looking to register their first win since beating Peru in the final of Copa America 2019. In their last four outings, Tite’s side have drawn three and lost one.
The Selacao have not been in a great form since the continental event and another victory against the arch-rivals will be enough for them to end the year on a high.
Argentina, on the other hand, will be eyeing nothing short of revenge. After losing the controversial Copa semi-final against Brazil, Lionel Scaloni’s side have found themselves in the middle of a five-match unbeaten run.
In the last match, the Albicelestes thrashed Ecuador 6-1 and will be heading into today’s match as the favourites. Only a win today can compensate for what has otherwise been an underwhelming year.
