This will be the second game of the continental competition for Argentina, as they kicked off their campaign with a 4-0 defeat at the hands of reigning champions Brazil on Sunday.
This will be the campaign opener for Peru, who finished third in the 1998 edition of the campaign but have been eliminated from the group stage campaigns ever since.
Only the top two teams from Group A and Group B will advance to the semi-finals, so every game is of utmost importance for the teams. Argentina have suffered a heavy defeat in their campaign opener so will be looking to return to winning ways.
Peru, on the other hand, will be determined to kick off their campaign in a positive way as they look to make it into the knockout stage for the first time since 1998.
