Miranda scores stoppage-time victor as Brazil beat rivals Argentina

Brazil 1-0 Argentina Every player rated as Miranda gives the Selecao Superclasico glory

Miranda, who was denied an earlier by Nicolas Otamendi's block, settled a low-key Superclasico de las Americas clash in the 93rd minute - the first time Argentina, who were without Lionel Messi for Tuesday's clash in Saudi Arabia, have conceded under Scaloni.

Argentina are one of only two teams to have beaten Brazil since Tite took over as coach in 2016, but without Lionel Messi, who is taking a sabbatical from worldwide football, they rarely troubled their neighbours in a derby match dubbed the Superclasico.

There was no time for Argentina to respond as they fell to their first defeat with Scaloni at the helm, leaving Brazil still ideal since the World Cup and now having kept 23 clean sheets in their 30 matches under manager Tite.

In the absence of Lionel Messi, the Albiceleste were terribly lacking in creativity and, while Brazil weren't much better, they always seemed the more likely to get the goal if there was to be one.

"Here we have a new group of players and we'll try to do our best for the team".

Neymar is nevertheless looking forward to facing Argentina.

"I would love Messi to be here because that would give us a boost in quality", said Romero, back in the Argentina squad following a knee injury that prevented him from featuring in two friendlies in September. "I told them the next game will be special because Argentina is our rival". We are happy to face great athletes.

Brazil, hosts of next year's Copa America, head into the encounter in Jedda on the back of Friday's 2-0 win over Saudi Arabia, with Neymar assisting both goals in a lackluster encounter.

Yet Argentina couldn't hold on for a draw, with Miranda popping up to make it four wins from four since Brazil's World Cup exit.

Argentina beat Iraq 4-0 on Thursday with only three players - Sergio Romero, Marcos Acuna and Maximiliano Meza - that went to the World Cup this summer starting.
