The Azzurri will face the Copa America winners tonight in Italy vs Argentina at the Wembley stadium. It is the third CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup, and both sides would like to have the trophy. The Azzurri will be keen to win this one after losing out on the chance to qualify for the World Cup. They had a disappointing run recently as they only managed to win two of their last six matches in the international fixtures. But the players will be keen to get Italy back to the winning ways after a great Serie A season.
Argentina on the other hand, are enjoying a 31-match unbeaten run that goes back to the July of 2019. The Copa America title was a big boost to them as they had last won it in 1993. Now, they will be keen to add another trophy as they face the UEFA Euros winners. Their defense, which was seen as a big issue, has stepped up as they have kept three clean sheets in their last five games. While, the Azzurri have just one in their last five matches.
Italy vs Argentina, who will win the Finalissima?
Chiellini will be playing his last game for the Azzurri, and he will become the joint most capped player at 4th along with De Rossi. So Bastoni could start on the bench and come in for Chiellini later. Barella is expected to start in the usual midfield three with Jorginho and Verratti. Scamacca can start at the front as Immobile is out because of an injury.
Lautaro should start at the top with Messi and Di Maria in support. Correa, Alvarez, and Dybala will be the options available on the bench for Scaloni. The Italian defenders will be familiar with the threat of Lautaro Martinez.
Italy will be keen to get this trophy, but Argentina are coming into this game with a great run of form.
Italy 1-2 Argentina.
