Argentina missed to Leo Messi, and remained checked this Friday in the 'Superclásico' against Brazil. More than 22.000 viewers gave appointment in Riad (Saudi Arabia) to witness the friendly between two of the selections with more history of the international football. In spite of that any of the combined national played at all, was not a party any one.

It was the duel of the return of 'The Flea' with the albiceleste from the Glass America, in which Argentina fell deleted precisely against Brazil in the round of semifinals. To all this, the 'canarinha' arrived to the appointment without having won any party from the quoted tournament, and left of the capital of Saudi Arabia with a defeat more in the pigeonhole.

And it is that Leo Messi, that completed a big performance in his turn to the orders of Lionel Scaloni, exerted of leader to mark the only goal of the party, after a refuse from the penalty spot, and guide to like this to his country to a full victory of good feelings. Brazil showed desdibujada, especially in the second part, with the team of Tite split in two and a big distance between the defence and the forward.

Without that Arthur neither the rest of midfield players shined in the medullary of the 'seleçao', Argentina exerted his command and did what better knows: attack. Leo Messi starred several opportunities of danger, between them a career from the centre of the field to the contragolpe, with a shot that Alisson detained, and also a shot of direct fault that the goalkeeper of the Liverpool attained to repel with the tip of the fingers.

Brazil could receive a correctivo in Saudi Arabia

Of not being by Alisson, in fact, Brazil could have received a serious correctivo against an Argentinian that did not leave to attack, especially to measure that approached the end of the party in spite of dominating in the marker. Agüero Did not appear in the eleven, but Lautaro Martínez and Ocampos played to a big level and seconded to perfection to the '10'.

To Lautaro Martínez was missing him something of puntería in the definition, and the marker remained short for an albiceleste that deserved much more that the 0-1. Reasons for the optimism for Lionel Scaloni, whereas Tite will have to reflexionar on the game of the 'canarinha', very poor from does months. The best news for the Brazilians: the debut of Rodrygo Goes, that could not contribute too much.
