Argentina were disappointing in their loss to Venezuela during their last CONMEBOL World Cup 2014 qualifying match, but most are backing them to rebound and come away from a home match against Bolivia with three points. However, the last time Bolivia met the Albiceleste in Argentina, they came away with a point, just earlier this year in the 2011 Copa America. Angel di Maria and Sergio Aguero are out, causing Argentina to make adjustments. Javier Pastore will finally start, while Ricky Alvarez will also come into the starting lineup. Argentina has a very creative team, but they could end up being a bit narrow. Bolivia will likely put 10 behind the ball at all times. Here are the lineups.
Argentina Lineup (4-3-2-1): Romero; Rodriguez, Burdisso, Demichelis, Zabaleta; Mascherano, Gago, Alvarez; Messi, Pastore; Higuain
Bolivia Lineup (4-4-1-1): Arias; Gutierrez, Rivero, Mendez, Vargas; Cardozo, Robles, Flores, Rojas; Escobar; Andaveris
Kickoff is at 3:00 pm ET from Argentina.
