    I think the defences are what gives team B the edge

    Damn. This would be fun to watch. Those attacks. Woof!

    Going forward, both teams are outstanding. But Team B have got a superior defense and that will win them the match here.

    Team B has the better defence. The gulf in quality in CB's in SA apart from Passarella and Figueroa compared to the rest is much bigger than Pele/Maradona or the likes.

    Team A's CB's are being underrated imo.

    They’re solid from their era, but Passarella and Figueroa are stand out all-time greats.

    Passerella - South America’s greatest ever attacking libero (one of Argentina’s most influential leaders).
    Figueroa - South America’s greatest ever defender. One of the top five most complete defensive centrebacks of all time too.

    It’ll be a high scoring game regardless, but if you give Team B’s centreback partnership to Team A, Team A wins.

    I would have played Ronaldinho on left and Rivelino as the #10. Not sure about Zico as a defensive midfielder either ;)

    Zico in the 'santi cazorla' role would be awesome!

    Well, I am late, but Team A has a better attack, while Team B is more complete.

    One by one:

    José Luis Chilavert = Gilmar
    Cafu < Djalma Santos
    Óscar Ruggeri < Elías Figueroa
    Roberto Ayala < Daniel Passarella
    Roberto Carlos
    = Nílton Santos
    Paulo Roberto Falcão < Zico
    Didi
    > Fernando Redondo
    Lionel Messi > Garrincha
    Neymar = Jairzinho
    Ronaldinho < Diego Maradona
    Pelé
    > Ronaldo

    It's hard to judge them as teams. The lineups don't seem so realistic.
