ARG vs GER Dream11 : Germany and Argentina go at loggerheads today as either side looks to try out relatively untested and newer players
As club football takes a backseat and the international fixtures come to the forefront, Germany and Argentina get ready to go at loggerheads today in a match which will be more than just a normal international encounter. Although there are no ramifications from this clash for either side, it is far from an inconsequential one for either with both the sides set to experiment with their outfits ahead of more pivotal tests.
With Germany facing Estonia in their Euro 2020 Qualifiers four days after this clash, today’s clash is all about testing out untried players and young upcoming ones for the side. Reeling under a slew of injury issues with a plethora of star performers out for them for a good period of time, this clash is the pinch perfect opportunity for the side to test the mettle of players against a side who are bound to come hot out of the blocks in this one.
While Germany sit atop of their qualification group, Argentina meanwhile are coming into this clash in the wake of yet another Copa America sortie. The side have been underachieving for far too long now, a unit which has come under massive flak and backlash due to its inability to unlock its true potential and achieve what s side laden with some myriad worldclass players is truly capable of.
And their stay at the Copa America perhaps perfectly epitomised everything wrong with the side. The outfit is clearly suffering due to Lionel Messi, a player who has regressed the side, pushing them back rather than taking them to unprecedented height owing to his unsavoury stubbornness to control the entire proceedings in the side.
He’s often been criticised of underperforming at the international level and his persistent jibes at referees during the Copa America were clear indications of a player trying to disguise his disruptive gameplan and hide Argentina’s inclement showings. Now without him and a hoard of other regular players, Argentina will be looking to put a tough fight infront of Germany who have failed to win four out of the five previous matches the two have fought devoid of any tournamnet.

ARG vs GER Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Althouhg Argentina’s defence has become a massive cause for their harrowing showings across the course of the recent years, we are going to stick with their goal-keeper for this one. Germany have a hoard of players missing for them, massively depleting the side on the attacking front and this is a proposition which could see Agustin Marchesin keep a cleansheet today.
ARG vs GER Dream11 Defenders
Staying true to the aforementioned narrative, we have Nicolas Tagliafico come into our side for today’s impending clash while from Germany we are getting in Niklas Sule and Niklas Stark. Both are players who are more than capable of marauding their way forward and getting their head on a corner or freekick along with finding a goal through normal play, making them good picks for this one.
ARG vs GER Dream11 Midfielders
We have kept things balanced over here, choosing the two players apiece from either side, all names who’ll be quissential to either side’s consummate success in the attacking sorties. We begin with Argentina first, getting in Rodrigo de Paul and Leandro Paredes from the side, two names who have been brought into the side’s setup in a bid to resolve their attacking woes.
Elsewhere from Germany we have opted for Joshua Kimmich who has been scoring regularly at the club level along with Kai Havertz.
ARG vs GER Dream11 Strikers
In Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero’s absence, the brunt of doing the bulk of the scoring will lie on Paola Dybala for Argentina and he will see a slew of chances canter down his path. Playing as the most attackingly advanced player for his side today should benefit him like it did at the weekend against Inter Milan, making him a good pick for this one.
Lautaro Martinez comes in from the side as well while from the opposition we are opting for Luca Waldshmidt who looks likely to get a chance to play this one with Timo Werner’s participation after an illness looking bleak.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Martinez is our side’s captain for this imminent clash while we are making Dybala our vice-captain.
