The Brazil versus Argentina rivalry has been one that lasted between both sides for many years. Although Brazil is the more confident team between the two as they carry a 5-year unbeaten streak against Argentina, there is no question that today’s match between both sides can easily see that streak coming to a halt.
With head-coach Mano Menezes making much (Needed) changes in the Brazilian roster, one player whose name is still on that list is Barcelona defender, Dani Alves. Playing against his teammate and who he feels is “The world’s best player”, Lionel Messi, Alves knows that today’s match against Argentina will be no walk in the park. However, the Brazilian defender is still confident that their streak against their rivals will continue on.
Dani Alves went on to say the following ahead of their friendly:
“I hope that we can continue with this record. Messi is the best in the world, it is going to be very, very difficult. It is impossible to mark him one on one, there has to be more than one around him. Every day he surprises me, I hope the same doesn’t happen [today],” the Barcelona star commented on his club teammate, before pointing out the other Argentina danger man. I love Pastore. He has only been in the Seleccion a short time and he is in the best form of his career. I also like [Javier] Mascherano, but he is one of the old boys!”
Although it will be a tough battle between both sides, I definitely think that Argentina have a better chance in winning today’s match. With Brazil making some major changes in his roster and Argentina still boosting some of their World Cup starters, Argentina definitely has the on-going chemistry to come out on top tonight.
