Here are the 5 main reasons Argentina will defeat Italy tonight
The CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions will pit Italy against Argentina at Wembley tonight.
As they prepare to face Copa America champions Argentina in the 2022 Finalissima, European champions Italy are in a bit of a slump. FIFA World Cup qualification has not been achieved by Roberto Mancini’s side. They’ve only won two of their last six games overall.
The 5 main reasons are;
- Argentina Team having Messi is a big factor
Paris Saint-attack Germain’s still relies heavily on Lionel Messi, even though he hasn’t scored as many goals as he has in the past. He remains one of the game’s most lethal forwards. The attacking duo of Lautaro Martinez and Angel Di Maria will be able to support Lionel Messi. This year, the 34-year-old will be looking to add to his collection of international medals and titles. Any team that has a motivated Messi is doomed. By his own lofty standards, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has had an underwhelming campaign.
Argentina Team have better bench strength
The team will still have the likes of Paulo Dybala, Julian Alvarez, Joaquin Correa and Angel Correa on the bench.

Argentina Team is currently in form because they are unbeaten in 31 games
The Albiceleste haven’t lost a match since 2019 when they were last defeated. At the 2019 Copa America, the United States suffered a crushing defeat to Brazil. Since then, Argentina has proven to be a dependable group that is capable of playing some spectacular football.
Their most recent accomplishments include victory in the 2021 Copa América, a perfect record in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifications, and a runner-up finish in the standings to a dominant Brazilian team.
Italy Team are currently in poor form
In their last six games, they have two draws and two losses. Italian national soccer team has also failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Japan. 2021 saw them win the European championship and advance to the UEFA Nations League semi-finals, showing off their impressive form at the time.
Due to Injuries, Federico Chiesa and Ciro Immobile will not be available for the match
Italy will be without two of their best attackers, Federico Chiesa and Ciro Immobile. Domenico Berardi, Moise Kean, Nicolo Zaniolo, and Andrea Pinamonti have all been forced to withdraw from the squad because of injuries.
