Argentina - Iraq Prediction, Picks and Tips
This friendly match will be played in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). Argentina, which was left without DT after the defeat of the World Cup, is temporarily led by Leonel Scaloni who debuted in last month's friendlies: 3-0 over Guatemala and 0-0 with Colombia. On this occasion he also did not call Messi, Agüero, Higuaín, di María, Mercado and Rojo. He hopes to give prominence to Icardi and Dybala as drivers of the attack considering that against a modest opponent they should demonstrate the qualities with which they stand out in the Italian league.
Back, the Tagliafico side has established itself as a benchmark; Pezzella and Funes Mori would return to form the central back. If they repeat the order shown against Colombians and Guatemalans, it is very likely that Iraq will not score either. The Asian team faces their last friendlies prior to their debut in the Asian Cup next January. It is a combative rival but the absence of players of hierarchy and lack of competitive friction reduces opportunities.
Franco Armani, who grabbed the titularato in the Argentinian goal, was injured and was out of the list. This year Iraq played 6 friendlies, all against Asian teams: 2 wins, 3 draws and one fall. After this friendly Argentina will face Brazil also in Arab territory. In his debut as coach of Iraq, Slovenian Srecko Katanec equaled 2-2 with Kuwait a month ago.
