Twelve days until the debut in the America Cup -on June 20 against Canada- the Argentine National Team will play on Friday, starting at 9:00 p.m., its last friendly preparatory match for the continental competition.

After the 1-0 victory against Ecuador, coach Lionel Scaloni plans to make several changes so that all the players arrive with sufficient training.

However, although ownership is not guaranteed, what was confirmed was that Lionel Messi will be present against the Guatemalans.

The captain, who was on the bench against Ecuador and entered the complement but for load management, it could now be part of the front again instead of Ángel Di María, who scored the only goal, although it is not ruled out that, with less than a week until the official premiere, he will only see minutes in the second half.

For Friday’s match, coach Lionel Scaloni plans to make up to seven changes, although he maintains doubts on all lines.

In defense, Nahuel Molina would enter for Gonzalo Montiel on the right and Nicolás Tagliafico on the left for Marcos Acuña. In the central defense, Nicolás Otamendi will accompany Cristian Romero or Lucas Martínez Quarta, relegating Lisandro Martínez to the bench. For the midfield, Alexis Mac Allister and Enzo Fernández would start for Leandro Paredes and Giovani Lo Celso, and Exequiel Palacios could come in for Rodrigo De Paul. Above, the presence of Lionel Messi for Ángel Di María is a possibility, as is the entry of Nicolás González, while the nine will come from Lautaro Martínez or Julián Álvarez.

The probable formation would be: Emiliano Martínez; Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero Lucas Martínez Quarta, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico; Rodrigo De Paul or Exequiel Palacios, Alexis Mac Alliser, Enzo Fernández; Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez or Julián Álvarez and Nicolás González.
