Argentina host Scotland at the Estadio Monumental Jose Fierro in Tucuman on Saturday, with the aim of extending their dominance in the fixture. The Pumas have won 10 of the 12 meetings between the sides.

Scotland's most recent victory came in an impressive halved series in Argentina in 2008, when Frank Hadden's side fought back from defeat in the first Test with a 26-14 win in Buenos Aires. Their other victory came in the first meeting between the sides, in 1990. David Sole led a strong Scotland side, fresh from a Five Nations Grand Slam, to a 49-3 victory.

Argentina's biggest victory came at Murrayfield in 2001, when Scotland were on the end of a 25-16 loss. The Pumas won seven straight Tests between Scotland's first and most recent victory and added another scalp with their 9-6 win at Murrayfield in November, when the home side had been aiming for a clean sweep during their autumn internationals.
