Australia will seek revenge as the two go head-to-head in an international friendly. It will be the third match for each side since the winter World Cup.

Argentina vs Australia lineups

It would be a surprise if Lionel Scaloni were to move away from 4-3-3 in this match.

Leonardo Balerdi and Facundo Medina have been named in the squad for this match, but they are unlikely to start ahead of Nicolas Otamendi and German Pezzella. Manchester United fans will be interested to see if Alejandro Garnacho is given a senior debut.

Argentina (4-3-3, right to left): Martinez (GK) — Montiel, Pezzella, Otamendi, Acuna — Lo Celso, Fernandez, Mac Allister — Messi, Martinez, Gonzalez

Alessandro Circati and Thomas Glover have received their first senior call-ups while Gianni Stensness and Denis Genreau have been recalled. Craig Goodwin, Aaron Mooy, Jackson Irvine, Jason Cummings, Milos Degenek, and Aziz Behich are all injured and did not make the squad.

Australia (4-3-3, right to left): Ryan (GK) — Stensness, Souttar, Rowles, Bos  — Baccus, O'Neill, Devlin — Metcalfe, Duke, Maclaren
