Argentina welcome Haiti in 'La Bombonera' in their last home preparation game before World Cup. Jorge Sampaoli's choice for the World's Cup squad left many questions about Mauro Icardi's participation, who is out, regardless his excelent performance this year. Otherwise, Argentina's team has got a quality roster whose goal is the Wolrd Cup trophy. They have three lost finals in a row (two in Copa America plus one in the last World Cup), so now they have huge expectations. In March friendly games they won 2-0 Italy, but a couple of days later they were humiliated 6-1 by Spain. Basic goalkeeper Romero was unlucky and stays out of the World Cup due to injury.
Weak Haiti couldn't do much in their qualification games for the final stages of World Cup. They finished in third place of their group and disqualified. They are a quite mediocre team. In previous friendly matches they drawed 3-3 vs Japan, while they won 1-0 UAE. It will be a difficult match in Buenos Aires and team's coach Cohlat should pay attention exclusively on team's defense.
Argentina are playing today their last friendly game if front of their fans and have a chance to bounce back against an inferior team like Haiti. There is huge difference between the two teams. Home win with a 2.5 goal handicap is my choice.
