Is Argentina vs Estonia on TV? Time, channel, live stream updates and best bets for World Cup friendly tuneupArgentina is a strong bet to stretch its team record undefeated streak to 33 matches when the Albiceleste face Estonia's national team in a friendly match to be played on Sunday, June 5 in Spain. Lionel Messi & Co. left a strong impression after brushing off European champions Italy 3-0 in a dominant midweek display. That performance left many feeling this Argentina has what it takes to go all the way at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar — a tournament that is expected to be Messi's last with his national team. Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni will use the final match of this June international window against Estonia to give a final chance to players on the fringe to impress him before he makes his final squad selections for November's tournament in Qatar.
This will be the first matchup between these two nations in their history.

Swiss manager Thomas Haberli coaches Estonia, and in midweek he rolled out a 3-5-2 formation in their 2022-23 Nations League debut, winning 2-0 at home against minnows San Marino. Estonia's next match is set for June 9 in Malta, and Haberli could opt to rest players ahead of that match or continue to consolidate the lineup that helped earn that opening victory courtesy of goals by forward Robert Kirss and center back Joonas Tamm. Estonia projected lineup (3-5-2, left to right): Karl Hein (GK) — Karol Mets, Joonas Tamm, Marten Kuusk — Vlasiy Sinyavskiy, Mattias Kait, Konstantin Vassiljev, Sergei Zenjov — Robert Kirss, Erik Sorga.

The odds are as lopsided as you're going to see for a match involving Argentina, mainly because they rarely go to the trouble of playing lower-ranked opponents. If you like a sweat, picking the Estonia +3. 5 spread might be the way to go judging by Estonia's recent matches against other world powers (3-1 and 5-2 losses vs. Belgium and a 0-0 draw and 1-0 loss vs. Wales). To play it safer, you only lose half your bet with the +3.
75 Asian Handicap if it's exactly a four-goal differential in the final scoreline. Since the beginning of 2021, Estonia have played 13 matches and only once has the score margin been greater than three goals: That was exactly four goals in a 6-2 home loss to the Czech Republic.

Argentina will play in Group C against Poland, Mexico and Saudi Arabia. The World Cup is the farthest thing from Estonia's mind, as one of the lowest-ranked European sides (No. 110 in the FIFA rankings). But their tactical style carries some similarities to Argentina's Group B opponent Poland, albeit on a completely different tier when it comes to quality. Estonia had a poor return of four points in eight matches during World Cup qualifying.
Reports in Argentina say that Messi requested to start and wear the captain's armband and that he'll be joined by regular midfielder Rodrigo De Paul and right back Nahuel Molina as returning starters from the Italy match. There will be changes everywhere else, beginning at goalkeeper. Starter Emiliano "Dibu" Martinez left camp with a knee injury and River Plate's Franco Armani is expected to get the nod against Estonia. In central defense, backup center backs German Pezzella and Lisandro Martinez are projected to pair up, though Feyenoord's Marcos Senesi could make his debut as he attempts to mount a late challenge for a spot.
Alexis Mac Allister has something to prove in midfield, and there's a sense he's in direct competition with Exequiel Palacios for a ticket to Qatar. PSG center mid Leandro Paredes is out injured. In the attack, Angel Correa is sidelined for a minor dermatological procedure, and new Manchester City signing Julian Alvarez and Joaquin Correa (no relation to Angel) could get the start alongside Messi. Super sub Paulo Dybala and Fiorentina winger Nico Gonzalez are the other options on the forward line. Argentina projected lineup (4-3-3, left to right): Franco Armani (GK) — Nahuel Molina, German Pezzella, Lisandro Martínez, Marcos Acuna — Rodrigo De Paul, Alexis Mac Allister, Alejandro "Papu" Gomez — Lionel Messi, Julian Alvarez, Joaquín Correa.
