Team news
Bolivia heavily rotated the squad last time out and expect the likes of Alejandro Chumacero and top scorer Pablo Escobar to return to the starting XI.

Gabriel Marcado was injured in the win over Chile and will miss out here, meaning Facundo Roncaglia will deputise.

Lionel Messi has been handed a four match ban for abusing a referee, whilst Gonzalo Higuain sits out due to an accumulative ban.

Expected starting XI’s
Bolivia (4-3-1-2): Lampe; Bejarano, Raldes, Zenteno, Flores; Castro, Chumacero, Wayar; Escobar; Arce, Martins
Argentina (4-3-3): Romero; Roncaglia, Otamendi, Rojo, Mas; Mascherano, Pizarro, Biglia; Di Maria, Aguero, Pratto
