Finally, Argentina is not only in the round of 16 but they have topped group C beating both Mexico and Poland. Though they lost their first match against Saudi Arabia, they showed the world who they are and why are they the favorites of many. They beat Robert Lewandowski’s Poland very badly and now they are confident and they are back in their original form as they were before they faced Saudi Arabia. Lionel Messi said in his interview after the win against Mexico that the burden has finally been released from the team.
When Argentina lost their first match to Saudi Arabia both the next matches were knockouts for the Argentine team. They won both the knockouts and now are officially in the knockout round of 16 so hypothetically this will not be the first knockout match for Argentina, they are prepared for this and crossed 2 teams in previous knockouts in group stages. Argentina will face Australia who is the second topper of group D who kicked out Denmark from the tournament.

Argentina Squad and line-up for round of 16
Argentina will start against Australia in a 4-3-3 formation in the round-of-16 knockout match.
It will be the same gameplay that we are seeing in many previous matches of Argentina. Di Maria, Messi, and Julian Alvarez will be in the forward positions and De Paul, Fernandez, and Mac Allister will be in mid-field while Romero, Otamendi, Lisandro Martinez, and Pardes will be in defending positions.
Argentina’s gameplay is simple Pardes or Romero give passes to mid-fielders or all of the defender and mid-fielders tries to give the ball to Di Maria and Angel Di Maria gives a cross to Messi and finally, Messi scores a goal. The Center of the game is always Di Maria and the finisher is Messi it’s so simple.
Di Maria and Messi gave their best performance in their previous game against Poland while Alvarez and Mac Allister scored a goal. The Argentinian team is now boosted up and now they don’t have any pressure or burden of a winning streak or anything. They will play a fresh mind game against the Australian team.

Defenders: Cristian Romero, Nicolas Otamendi, Lisandro Martinez, Leandro Paredes
