Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martínez are set to start for Argentina vs. Honduras.
Messi, Lautaro Martínez, and Ángel Di María are rumored to be Argentina’s attack against Honduras on Friday. Lionel Scaloni is not expected to make many or any changes to the regular starting XI.
Emiliano Dibu Martínez will start in goal with one of Marcos Acuña and Nicolás Tagliafico at left-back. Nicolás Otamendi will also start and with him either Germán Pezzella or Cristian Cuti Romero.
Both Romero and Lisandro Martinez have visa issues and they have yet to arrive in the United States. If they arrive with enough time, Romero will start and if not, the German Pezzella will start.
Nahuel Molina starts with one possible change in midfield. Gio Lo Celso is struggling with fitness but could be in the starting eleven, while Enzo would start in his place if Lo Celso is not ready.
Leandro Paredes and Rodrigo De Paul would complete the midfield. Up front, it’s Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez and Ángel Di María.
Here’s the rumored eleven:
Emiliano Dibu Martínez; Acuña/Tagliafico, Otamendi, Pezzella/Romero, Molina; Paredes, Lo Celso/Enzo, De Paul; Messi, Lautaro Martínez, Di María
