Ezequiel Lavezzi and Hugo Campagnaro start for Argentina, with Roque Santa Cruz preferred to Nelson Valdez up front for Paraguay.
Sergio Aguero may be missing, but Argentina can still put out a fearsome frontline without him, as they'll show against Paraguay tonight. Gonzalo Higuain starts, with Ezequiel Lavezzi, Angel Di Maria, and Lionel Messi in a supporting trio behind him.
Of course, being Argentina, it starts to get a lot less impressive as we move to the rest of the team, with Rodrigo Brana and Marcos Rojo handed starts for La Albiceleste.
For Paraguay, Roque Santa Cruz is an intriguing choice to start, with the striker having seen very little first-team action of late. Nelson Valdez is waiting on the bench if it doesn't work out.
Argentina: Sergio Romero; Hugo Campagnaro, Federico Fernández, Ezequiel Garay, Marcos Rojo; Rodrigo Braña, Fernando Gago; Angel Di María, Lionel Messi, Ezequiel Lavezzi; Gonzalo Higuaín.
Paraguay: Justo Villar; Ivan Piris, Paulo Da Silva, Antolin Alcaraz, Richard Ortíz; Victor Ayala, Cristian Riveros, Victor Cáceres, Marcelo Estigarribia; Jonathan Fabbro, Roque Santa Cruz.
