Argentina's Orion: There is no such thing as a friendly against Brazil

Reuters

Argentina's Agustin Orion believes that every game against Brazil is an opportunity for bragging rights ahead of the second leg of the Superclássico das Americas.

The second leg kicks off at midnight tonight as the two teams, mainly filled with domestic players, go head to head.

Ahead of the match, Orion told reporters: "There are no friendly games against Brazil.

"I played last year's Superclasico de las Americas and it was a beautiful experience. All of us want to play Brazil.

"The stadium will be full of fans. We are ready, we are used to the coach's idea and we feel we belong to the Argentinean shirt.''

Forward Juan-Manuel Martinez also added: "Brazil will not play defensively despite having taken a 2-1 lead from the first leg.

"We need to win and Brazil feel comfortable by attacking and playing with the ball."

Brazil take a 2-1 lead into tonight's clash and a 1-0 win for Argentina could take it to penalties.
