Argentina have been bolstered by the return of first choice flyhalf Juan Martin Hernandez and flank Juan Manuel Leguizamon.
The return of Hernandez and the inclusion of 35-Test openside flank Leguizamon are the only changes to the Pumas side that drew with South Africa 16-all in Mendoza two weeks ago.
Playmaker Hernandez, who was a late withdrawal from that match because of a hamstring injury, replaces Bordeaux's Nicolas Sanchez and Leguizamon comes in the side for Alvaro Galindo.
Leguizamon was sidelined by a stomach injury for Argentina's first championship matches and his last Test appearance was when Argentina lost 10-33 to the All Blacks in the World Cup quarterfinal last year.
He forms part of an experienced Argentine forward pack which includes prop Rodrigo Roncero, lock Patricio Albacete and captain and back row forward Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe.
Argentina are being assisted in their preparations for this match by former All Blacks coach Graham Henry who is helping with the development of Argentine rugby.
Although Henry is encouraging Argentina to play a more expansive game they are expected to stick with their traditional style of a rugged forward confrontation.
The tourists only named their starting 15 on Tuesday with the replacements to be announced on Thursday, the day the All Blacks name their side.
