Meanwhile, Argentina currently leads the qualifying table, with 13 points.

Unfortunately, an injury will prevent Juan Manuel Vargas from playing Tuesday’s match.

"After the match against Venezuela, Juan Vargas ended with discomfort in both thighs. He underwent an MRI, which detected a small lesion in his left thigh muscle, and has been ruled out from the match against Argentina,” the team was quoted as saying by El Comercio.

Out of the 47 times both sides have played each other, Peru has lost 31 times, and registered 5 wins.

Peru last beat Argentina in 1997, during the Copa America.
