Argentina vs New Zealand Predictions
Despite the All Blacks making 11 changes to their side, they should still have far too much for a struggling Argentina team. The South Americans have lost some crucial players to injury. I am backing New Zealand to win by more than 25 points.

Head to Head
New Zealand have won 31 of their 33 matches against Argentina. There has been one defeat and one draw.
Argentina have failed to score a point in their last two matches against the All Blacks, losing 38-0 and 39-0 last weekend.
Argentina started 2021 well but their form has completely dropped off. This after they enjoyed a fantastic 2020 where they beat New Zealand for the first time, and drew twice against Australia.
Los Pumas began 2021 with a victory over Romania before beating Wales 1-0 in a two-match series. Unfortunately the Rugby Championship is where things have gone wrong.
Argentina lost 32-12 and 28-10 in their two matches against South Africa. Last week against New Zealand they suffered a 39-0 defeat which will be a major concern going forward.
Much of this can be put down to all their matches taking place away from home. They have been traveling and quarantine for a few months now.
Argentina Injuries & Team News
Mario Ledesma has make six changes to his side this week and he tries to find combinations to compete with the All Blacks.
Santiago Carreras will start at flyhalf, the third different player in the last three matches. Nicolas Sanchez went off injured last week and will not feature in this match.
More injury concerns include winger Bautista Delguy and centre Jeronimo de la Fuente. Matias Orlando is also out with all three those players out of the Rugby Championship.
New Zealand Form
New Zealand are unbeaten in seven matches this year. It began with convincing victories over Tonga and Fiji (x2) before they saw off Australia in three consecutive matches.
In their Bledisloe Cup series, the All Blacks were completely dominant over the Wallabies, particularly in the final two matches where they won convincingly.
Last week New Zealand continued that form with a 39-0 thrashing of Argentina. It was a typically dominant display by the All Blacks, one they will look to back up with a very new looking side.
New Zealand Injuries & Team News
Ian Foster has rung the changes this week, making 11 in total. He obviously feels New Zealand have enough in the tank to see off the Argentines.
Damian McKenzie starts at flyhalf and is partnered by TJ Perenara at scrumhalf. Aaron Smith has been ruled out of this match.
Hoskins Sotutu comes in at eight while Joe Moody starts in the front-row.
