Media: Argentina rehearses a variety of formations in training, and 5-3-2 will be used if DiMaria does not play.
December 17-according to TYC, Argentina practiced a variety of formations in training on Friday. In the penultimate training session before the match against France, Scaroni obviously had a variety of considerations.
An important news is that Scaroni’s team first practiced the five full-backs in the training session, with Molina and Acuna as wingers. However, Di Maria later replaced Lisandro Martinez, and then the formation changed from 5-3-2 to 4-4-2.
Di Maria has played only 10 minutes against Holland since the group stage and he is now fully fit. Under such circumstances, Scaroni may allow him to form an attacking line with Lionel Messi and Alvarez, which means Lautaro will not start.
It is also worth noting that Molina was replaced by Montiel in the formation exercise, while Paredes finally replaced Di Maria. Under the current circumstances, Tariafico does not seem to be at left-back.
Messi and DePaul normally participated in the team’s tactical drills, but Alejandro Gomez, who sprained his ankle, did not participate in the joint training, and he is not expected to represent the team in the final. Argentina will have its last training session this Saturday.
Here are the three formations of the exercise in Argentina:
5-3-2: Emiliano Martinez; Molina, Christian Romero, Otamendi, Lisandro Martinez, Acuna; DePaul, Enzo Fernandez, McAllister; Messi, Alvarez
4-4-2: Emiliano Martinez; Molina / Montiel, Christian Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; DePaul, Enzo Fernandez, McAllister, DiMaria; Messi, Alvarez
4-3-3: Emiliano Martinez; Molina / Montiel, Christian Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; DePaul, Enzo Fernandez, McAllister; Messi, Alvarez, DiMaria / Paredes
