Lautaro Martinez did not live up to expectations in matches against Chile and Uruguay. The Inter Milan striker may not get a place in the starting XI against Paraguay. Instead, Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni could choose Sergio Aguero with Lionel Messi in the attack in Argentina VS Paraguay.
Brasilia means Argentina will face Paraguay at 6 am Bangladesh time on Tuesday at the Garrincha Stadium. Scaloni’s side won 1-0 against Uruguay in their second match since the start of the Copa America with a draw against Chile.
Aguero was replaced at the end of the match against Chile. Played tens of minutes. The forward, who joined Barcelona a few days before leaving Manchester City, has not been replaced against Uruguay. He will return to the starting XI of Argentina after one year, seven months and three days if he gets a chance to start against Paraguay.
Martinez’s performance against Uruguay was better than the Chile match. But the lack of goals was obvious. Perhaps his interaction with Romelu Lukaku at Inter was not as good as with his Argentine teammates.
Argentina VS Paraguay, Aguero last played in Argentina’s starting XI on 16 November 2019. 2-2 draw against Uruguay. He scored one goal in that match.
