It’s also the fourth match for Gregor Townsend’s side in the Autumn Nations Series. Scotland opened with a 16-15 loss to Australia then beat Fiji 28-12 before losing 31-23 last weekend to New Zealand.

What is the Autumn Nations Series?

The Autumn Nations Series is not a standalone tournament but the collective name for the international matches being played by the leading Test nations from 29 October through to 26 November when the southern hemisphere’s big guns tour Europe.

Scotland’s history with Argentina

The sides have met 21 times since the fixture was accorded Test status in 1990, with Argentina holding an 11-10 advantage. Of the eight matches played between the teams at Murrayfield there have been four wins apiece. Scotland came out on top 14-9 when they last played in Edinburgh, in 2018, with Sean Maitland scoring the only try of the game. Argentina’s last victory at Murrayfield, in 2009, was a tryless affair. Scotland had led 6-0 at half-time through two Phil Godman penalties but the Pumas came back to win 9-6 thanks to two penalties and a drop goal from Martin Rodriguez.
