There are four changes to the starting XV that suffered a defeat to Wales in Cardiff last weekend.

The Pumas are bolstered by the return of their captain Julian Montoya.

He missed the match in Cardiff because of a rib injury and he will replace Agustin Creevy, who drops out of the matchday 23.

The other change in the front row sees Eduardo Bello come in for Francisco Gomez Kodela.

There is a change in the midfield with Matias Orlando taking over the No.13 jersey from Matias Moroni.

The final change is on the wing where Bautista Delguy gets an opportunity ahead of Mateo Carreras.
