The host nation began the tournament with two disappointing draws but are now looking to reach the semi-finals after a Messi and Aguero-inspired win over Costa Rica


PROBABLE LINE-UPS
Argentina: Romero; Zabaleta, Burdisso, G. Milito, Zanetti; Gago, Mascherano; Aguero, Messi, Di Maria; Higuain.

Argentina

There will not be any changes for Argentina as Sergio Batista names the same starting line-up that earned a 3-0 victory against Costa Rica last time out.

Uruguay:  Muslera; M. Pereira, Lugano, Victorino, Caceres, A. Pereira; Gonzalez, Perez, Rios; Forlan, Suarez.


Oscar Tabarez will look to Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez to find the net against their neighbours as they are without Edinson Cavani, who is still recovering from injury.

  • Uruguay finished second in Group C with five points, two behind winners Chile.
  • The top scorer for Uruguay in the tournament is not Forlan, Suarez or Cavani; it is defender Alvaro Pereira, who has two goals.

  • The last meeting that took place between the two sides was in October 2009 when a Mario Bolatti goal six minutes from time clinched Argentina's qualification to the World Cup in South Africa.
  • Cavani will not play as he is still recuperating from a knee injury suffered against Chile in their second game. The striker did not play in the 1-0 victory over Mexico.
