Argentina vs. Brazil: Predicting the Brazil Starting XI

0 of 5

    Brazil take on South American rivals Argentina in the first of two keenly-anticipated friendly meetings on Wednesday night in Cordoba. The second follows on September 28 in Belem.

    Coach Mano Menezes will be without his European contingent, who have returned to their clubs for domestic and Champions League duties.

    He still has some serious talent at his disposal, however. Here's a rough guess at what Brazil's starting lineup might be tomorrow night.
