Argentina vs. Brazil - Football Match Report

Miranda was the stoppage-time hero for Brazil as his header gave Brazil a 1-0 win over Argentina in a low-key Superclasico de las Americas clash.

Brazil are expected to be much changed for Argentina, though, with Inter Milan defender Miranda confirming how his team view Tuesday's match in Jeddah.

Despite Brazil fielding what is arguably their strongest XI, SCALONI put out what is still an inexperienced line-up but a positive display from his back line is something which should leave any Argentina fan happy, despite the defeat.

Tite's move to unite Neymar, Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus in a front three promised plenty on paper, but in execution the trio lacked any kind of coherence. The two sides last met in June 2017 in a friendly in Australia, won 1-0 by Argentina, but Brazil romped to a 3-0 success in their last competitive fixture, a World Cup qualifier in November 2016.

Despite the talent on show, though, clear-cut chances were at a premium throughout the contest as an Argentina squad missing Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria largely nullified the Brazilian threat.

There was a nervy moment for Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson midway through the first half when he was nearly caught in possession inside his own area, but he got the ball away just in time to avoid Angel Correa's sliding challenge.

An early chance for La Albiceleste at the start of the second half hinted at more entertainment to come, with Lo Celso meeting Correa's cross from the right and forcing a routine save from Alisson.

Neymar finally found room to stretch his legs in the 69th minute only to be cut down by Renzo Saravia, with Sergio Romero required to beat away Arthur's volley from the resultant free-kick.

"Every game against Argentina is different". As for Nicolas TAGLIAFICO, he continues to make that left back position his.

Messi also sat out Argentina's last three matches, all friendlies, since the country's disappointing last 16 elimination from the World Cup in Russian Federation.
