Argentina kick off their Copa América campaign against Paraguay in La Serena on Saturday, and scored five en route to a big victory in Asunción when these sides last met in a qualifier for last summer's World Cup. Coach Tata Martino has called up all his big hitters, and the likes of Lionel Messi and Sergio Agüero should feast on a defense that doesn't exactly look watertight.

Paraguay are one of the most experienced teams in this tournament, and will still be spearheaded by former Bayern Munich and Manchester City man Roque Santa Cruz. The 33-year-old captain has picked up over a century of caps up front for his national team, and is his nation's record scorer with 32 international goals.

However, Santa Cruz is a pretty static attacking presence, and Argentina will have to work harder to stop the young whippersnapper Derlis González; at 21, the Basel attacker is the baby of this Paraguay team, and after an impressive domestic season, will be looking to use this tournament to further enhance his reputation. If there's to be an upset in this match, it could well be because of him.
