It is a must-win match for Argentina, who many had down as the favourites for this group ahead of the tournament. Those predictions took a hit with that opening defeat by England, and the Pumas have had a fortnight to mull over that poor display.
A big response is needed from Argentina and it is expected, though there is huge pressure on them as they know a second defeat would leave their World Cup hopes in tatters after just 160 minutes.
They have the opportunity to get back to winning ways against Samoa, who began their campaign with a victory over debutants Chile. Another win here would set up a potentially decisive clash against Japan next week.
