Angel Di Maria pulling out of Argentina’s national team camp with an injury opens the door for Pity Martinez to play alongside Lionel Messi and likely Paulo Dybala up front for La Albiceleste. Argentine manager Lionel Scaloni is rumored to deploy his side in a 3-4-3.

On the other side, Josef Martinez will pair up with Miguel Almiron’s Newcastle teammate Salomon Rondon as the pair will look to scrap and claw past an Argentine back line that is likely to feature some fresh faces that haven’t played together before in their careers.
