Argentina will take on Ecuador in their last World Cup Qualification match on Tuesday, 29 March 2022. Lionel Messi and the boys will kick off the match at 11:30 pm GMT.

Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni talks about the possible lineup against Ecuador. As both the teams are qualified for the 2022 World Cup, it will be an exhibition match.

According to the reports of TyC Sports, Lionel Scaloni talks about the modification in the team. He expects to tweak his options before the world cup. Argentina coach praises Julian Alvarez as an excellent forward having magnificent attacking attributes.

Argentina’s Possible Lineup against Ecuador

According to the reports of TyC sports, Lionel Scaloni may include Julian Alvarez, Exequiel Palacios, Juan Musso, and Gonzalo Montiel in the Starting XI.

Julian Alvarez may replace Joaquin Correa in the front, playing alongside Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. We may see one or two changes in the midfield from the previous match. Exequiel Palacios will most likely start in the place of Alexis Mac Allister. Guido Rodriguez may start replacing PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes alongside the heartbeat of the team De Paul.

We may see changes in the defense and GK position as well. As Gonzalo Montiel is back from suspension, he may start at the left full-back position, replacing Molina. Atalanta goalkeeper Juan Musso may get his appearance in the starting lineup, replacing Franco Armani. Sevilla man Lucas Ocampos is also a possibility up the right-wing, replacing Angel Di Maria.

This is what the possible starting XI of Argentina looks like in a 4-3-3 formation

  • GK – Juan Musso
  • DEF – Montiel, Otamendi, Pezzella, Tagliafico
  • MID – De Paul, Guido Rodriguez, Exequiel Palacios
  • ATT – Lucas Ocampos/Di Maria, Julian Alvarez, Lionel Messi

Lionel Scaloni Talks about Paulo Dybala

Argentina’s boss also talks about the exclusion of Paulo Dybala from the squad for the last two qualifiers. According to the reports of TyC Sports, this is what Scaloni had to say,

“He has not been a regular starter for Juventus which we all would like. He is not in the best condition.”

Lionel Scaloni added, “Let him play for his club and make a difference.”

Paulo Dybala has not been in a good condition for Juventus. This Argentine star will not renew his contract with the Italian club and may leave the club in the next transfer window. Hence, Dybala’s World Cup 2022 hope hangs in the balance for the time being.
