In terms of selections Argentina have made three changes with lock Tomas Lavanini being replaced due to suspension by Matias Alemanno and wingers Horacio Agulla and Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino have both been dropped and replaced by Juan Imhoff and Manuel Montero.
Australia have also made three changes and hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau comes in to win his 50th cap. Western Force No.8 Ben McCalman and NSW Waratahs winger Peter Betham take the place of experienced and injured Wallabies duo Wycliff Palu (concussion) and Adam Ashley-Cooper (neck).
Australia have had some varying form in the Rugby Championship this year. They enjoyed good form against New Zealand in their opening match but were then thumped by the All Blacks in the second Test.
Last week Australia allowed South Africa to race into the lead and they needed their opponents to be reduced by a man in the sin bin to get ahead of the South Africans on the scoreboard.
Argentina lost 9-28 to New Zealand last weekend but in their first two Rugby Championship matches they put South Africa under real pressure. In the second Test they faded after 60 minutes which allowed South Africa to take the lead. While they have improved greatly this year they will need an 80 minute performance to get their first Rugby Championship match.
