Lionel Messi was ruled out of the match, with a sore abductor muscle injury.

Coach Jorge Sampaoli said he would be fit to play tonight during yesterday’s press conference, however, reports emanating from Argentina suggest otherwise.

This will be a blow for fans hoping to see the maestro in action; and furthermore, Sergio Aguero has not travelled to Madrid for Argentina’s next friendly either, the country’s federation announced.

A tweet from Seleccion Argentina read: “Sergio Aguero will be released from the group to continue the recovery of his left knee.”

Meanwhile, Spain head into the match after drawing with Germany 1-1 with Rodrigo opening the scoring after a lovely pass by Andres Iniesta.

Alvaro Morata will be missing for Spain after failing to make the squad.
