Argentina Team News
Martinez overcame muscular exhaustion to start and score against Uruguay in a powerful 65-minute cameo, but Marcos Acuna was nowhere to be seen after being hurt against Paraguay.
With Acuna working his way back to fitness, Nicolas Tagliafico should keep his left-back spot, while Joaquin Correa received a knock on Sunday and will be inspected.
Last time out, Nicolas Gonzalez was chosen above Angel Di Maria, but the Paris Saint-Germain attacker will hope to profit from some rest this week.
Peru Team News
Meanwhile, Peru have no fresh injury concerns to report from their defeat to Bolivia, but Gareca did lose experienced heads Renato Tapia, Edison Flores and Paolo Guerrero to injury before October’s games commenced.
Jefferson Farfan won his 99th cap for the national team last time out, and the 36-year-old will become just the sixth player to chalk up a century of appearances for Peru should he earn some minutes here.
Miguel Trauco returns from suspension to provide an option for change at left-back, while Gianluca Lapadula is indispensable up top.
Argentina XI: Martinez; Montiel, Romero, Otamendi, Tagliafico; Di Maria, Paredes, De Paul, Gonzalez; Messi, Martinez
Peru XI: Gallese; Advincula, Abram, Callens, Lopez; Yotun, Aquino, Gonzales; Farfan, Lapadula, Cueva
