Brazil vs. Argentina: Tite was "they escape" Players

Brazil’s technical director, Tite, called forward Artur and defender Léo Ortiz, both from the local Red Bull Bragantino, on Friday for the qualifying matches against Argentina and Peru.

The calls respond to the unforeseen casualties of Malcom, Claudinho and Marquinhos. The first and second, attacker and midfielder, abandoned the concentration and returned to Russia under pressure from their club, Zenit de Saint Petersburg; While the third, defender and captain of Paris Saint-Germain, was booked in Thursday’s 1-0 win over Chile in Santiago and will have to serve a day of suspension after having accumulated two yellow cards.

Artur and Ortiz, 25, who played the Copa América in July in Brazil with Canarinha, appeared at the hotel where the Brazilian team is concentrated in the city of Sao Paulo, waiting for their teammates, who will arrive in this Friday night from Chile.

For his part, Artur, 23 years old and who received his first citation to the Major of his country after integrating the U20 and U23, made headlines recently for his stellar performance against Rosario Central in the South American Cup by scoring three goals in the Giant of Arroyito (4-3) and the same in the rematch (1-0).

The forward, also known as Arturzinho, is one of the biggest scorers in the competition (5 wins) and so far this year he has 42 games and 9 goals between Brasileirao, Paulistao, Copa de Brasil and Sudamericana.

It is worth remembering that in addition to the three casualties mentioned, and unlike what happened with the Argentine National Team, Brazil could not count for this triple date with the players who play in the Premier League (9: Alisson, Ederson, Thiago Silva, Fabinho, Fred , Roberto Firmino, Raphinha, Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus) due to the restrictions imposed by the English league for their players to travel to their countries of origin.

Brazil, which has a perfect score (21) after seven games, will host Argentina (15) this Sunday from 16 at the Corinthians Arena, the stadium where the National Team, at that time led by Alejandro Sabella, reached the final of the 2014 World Cup after winning to the Netherlands on penalties with a remarkable performance by Sergio “Chiquito” Romero.

The Superclassic of national teams, which is reissued a month after the Argentine triumph at Maracaná in the final of the Copa América, had to be played last March and was postponed due to the refusal of the European leagues to lend players in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic .
