 Match Preview

 Argentina, meanwhile, are preparing for their World Cup opener against Saudi Arabia on November 22, while they will also take on Mexico and Poland in the group stage of the competition.
Scaloni's side have not been in action since beating Jamaica 3-0 in a friendly at the end of September, and they have been victorious in each of their last four matches, including a 3-0 success over Italy in the Finalissima at the start of June.
Argentina have not actually lost a single match since Brazil beat them 2-0 in July 2019, which is an extraordinary run for a side considered to be one of the favourites for the World Cup.
The White and Sky Blues, who won the 2021 Copa America, have lifted the World Cup trophy on two occasions - 1978 and 1986 - while they were runners-up at the 2014 edition of the tournament before disappointingly going out in the round of 16 four years ago in Russia.

Argentina have actually only been past the quarter-finals once since 1990, but they must be considered as a frontrunner heading into the tournament due to their immense quality and impressive form.
