In world soccer, few international rivalries match the talent or the flair of Argentina vs. Brazil. Even though Friday’s contest is a friendly, it’s the first since the teams faced off in a memorable Copa America semifinal matchup, and it’s promising most of the players you’d want to see in a match featuring the teams. Even Lionel Messi, returning to the international scene from a three-month suspension, is slotted to suit up for La Albiceleste.

Argentina vs. Brazil: Why it matters
The teams last met in July, when Brazil beat Argentina in the Copa America semifinals en route to winning the tournament. There, Argentina piled up a 14-4 shot advantage, but Brazil made its chances count, with Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino scoring both goals in the contest. They’re both likely to have a role in this Saudi-hosted match, as will Neymar, who’s missed out on both the Copa and the last international break.
The big news for Argentina, of course, is that Messi’s back and will likely play if not start in the match. Also look for some of the usual big names like Sergio Aguero and possibly Paulo Dybala to figure in, though some lesser-known rising players like Giovani lo Celso and Lautaro Martinez might be featured in the attack as well.
Though it’s for bragging rights solely, it’s a great international break matchup on a neutral site—and will feature some of the familiar Premier League players that soccer fans might be missing this weekend.
