Team News

While Argentina’s talisman Lionel Messi trained away from the rest of his teammates on Thursday, the 35-year-old playmaker is expected to play from the start this weekend, thus sparing Lionel Scaloni a serious selection headache.

The Albiceleste captain’s left leg is his main source of concern, but it seems unlikely that Papu Gomez will be asked to deputise on Saturday. Therefore, Messi should headline an attacking trident also featuring Lautaro Martinez and Angel Di Maria.

Having started on the bench in the loss to Saudi Arabia following a fitness issue, Lisandro Martinez could come in for either Cristian Romero or Nicolas Otamendi as part of Scaloni’s back four. Gonzalo Montiel, Enzo Fernandez and Alexis Mac Allister are also in contention.

Meanwhile, forwards Angel Correa and Paulo Dybala – the latter only just back from injury – are among several squad members hoping to play their first minutes of the finals.

Another striker recently returned to fitness, Mexico’s Raul Jimenez, will aim for promotion to the starting XI. The Wolverhampton Wanderers star made his first appearance for almost three months in El Tri’s final friendly and featured from the bench on Tuesday.

Tata Martino may instead turn to Henry Martin again, though, with Hirving Lozano and Alexis Vega offering support from the flanks.

Pachuca’s Luis Chavez – who played no part in the CONCACAF qualifiers but worked his way into the team during recent friendlies – could continue on the left side of a midfield trio in Martino’s 4-3-3 formation, though the vastly experienced Andres Guardado may replace him.

Predicted Lineup

Argentina expected starting lineup: E. Martinez- Montiel, Romero, Li. Martinez- Tagliafico; De Paul, Paredes- Fernandez; Messi, La. Martinez- Di Maria

Mexico expected starting lineup: Ochoa- Sanchez; Montes, Moreno, Gallardo- Herrera, Alvarez, Guardado- Lozano- Martin, Vega
