Argentina will look to consolidate top spot in Group A of Copa America when they take on already-eliminated Bolivia on Tuesday at 1am (UK time).
Lionel Scaloni’s men currently top the table, but just a point separates them from Paraguay in second, while Bolivia are yet to pick up a single result, and will hence not be present for the quarter-finals.

Bolivia vs Argentina build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Despite their best efforts, Bolivia have already received Group A’s wooden spoon. Cesar Farias’ men got off to the perfect start this summer, breaking the deadlock in their opener with Paraguay, but a red card to Jaume Cuellar saw the tables turned in the second half, and Miguel Almiron and Co ultimately ran out 3-1 victors. It’s gone from bad to worst since then, with further defeats to Chile and Uruguay confirming their elimination and an early journey back from Brazil.
For Argentina it has been a different story. Scaloni’s men endured a frustrating start to the tournament, draw 1-1 with Chile, but consecutive 1-0s has just rejuvenated the spirits for La Albiceleste. They currently lead the way in Group A, and will no doubt see this game as a must-win as they will want to enter the knockouts with a favourable draw which, as things stand, puts them against fourth in Group B (Ecuador).
- Bolivia (vs Uruguay): Lampe; Saavedra, Quinteros, Jusino, Fernandez; Justiniano, Vaca, Villarroel, Arca, Chura, Ramallo.
- Argentina (vs Paraguay): Martinez; Molina, Romero, Pezzella, Tagliafico; Rodriguez, Paredes, Di Maria, Messi, Gomez; Aguero.
Marcelo Moreno and Henry Vaca recently returned for Bolivia and are both in line to start for the nation’s final match of Copa America. Argentina meanwhile have no major injury concerns, though Scaloni could be tempted to shuffle the pack with their place in the knockouts already confirmed.
Player to watch: Papu Gomez (Argentina)
It’s incredible to think, but at 33 Papu Gomez has only ever picked up six caps for Argentina. For a player of his refined quality, playmaker grace and skill, that just highlights the depth of quality La Albiceleste have, one of football’s greatest talent pools. However, he has been given the nod by Scaloni for the Copa America this summer and has already repaid the faith shown in his by the former West Ham defender, netting the winning goal in the nation’s 1-0 win over Paraguay. As such, Scaloni may be tempted to hand Sevilla’s diminutive genius a successive start, particularly as he will now have one eye on the knockouts. If Bolivia are not careful, Gomez could have a field day if he is in the mood and establishes a fluid link-up with Lionel Messi.
