(Sporting Alert) — Brazil and Argentina will face-off in an international friendly on Wednesday night, but as expected, none of their players are deeming this as a friendly.
The two teams will be going all guns to win the second leg of the Superclasico de las Americas, even though the first leg ended closely.
Both teams will be without several of their top players, but goalkeeper Agustin Orion, who plays locally for Boca Juniors, told Fox Sports Radio that he doesn’t expect this to be a friendly match.
“There are no friendly games against Brazil,” Orion said.
“I played last year’s Superclasico de las Americas and it was a beautiful experience. All of us want to play Brazil. The stadium will be full of fans.
“We are ready, we are used to the coach’s (Alejandro Sabella) idea and we feel we belong to the Argentinian shirt.”
Brazil and Argentina always play open and attractive football and tonight will be no different.
“Brazil will not play defensively despite having taken a 2-1 lead from the first leg,” Argentina forward Juan-Manuel Martinez said.
“We need to win and Brazil feel comfortable by attacking and playing with the ball.
“We must win so, in order to win, we must attack them. It is up to how focused the players are. Brazil will play like they always play. Because of our history and the way we play, we don’t have any other option but attack them.”
