The defending champions New Zealand All Blacks are coming off a statement-making win. They beat the Springboks by 23-35 points last week in Johannesburg. The All Blacks will play home matches and look to bag wins with bonus points against Argentina.
However, Los Pumas will bring a lot of momentum after defeating the Wallabies comfortably by 48-17 points.
But it would be difficult for Argentina to beat the All Blacks in New Zealand as they will be hungry for wins. We predict the All Blacks will grab a big win on Saturday. New Zealand 40-15 Argentina.
