Argentina - Hopeful to record a first win in the Rugby Championship.
The last year's Rugby Championship ended without a win for the Pumas. When they play at home in the first match of this competition, they will be hoping to make their mark if they want to win the Championship. Although they may not look like a favorite, their opening performance will go a long way in determining the possibility of going far in the competition. Lately, in their last five matches, they have been able to win three matches and lose two, which is a fair result for them. They will now be focused on registering a win against a struggling Australia's Wallabies.
Australia - Can the Wallabies get back to winning ways?
The Wallabies will have to go to Argentina to compete against a common Pumas team, hosting the Rugby Championship in 2020 and 2021. Australia may not be at their best based on recent form, but they still appear to be the greatest favorites to win this game. Undoubtedly, the Australian team will perform better against the Pumas, who they have defeated in their previous three meetings. The Wallabies can only enter this game with one victory in their previous five games. Let's hope the Australian team does well in the opening game.
