Alejandro Sabella's side qualified as Group F winners with maximum points, following victories over Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iran and Nigeria.
However, the Swiss did well to beat Ecuador to second place in Group E, sealing their place in the last 16 with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Honduras in their final game.
Switzerland's biggest concern will be keeping the sublime Lionel Messi quiet, and that task is likely to fall to Fabian Schar, who was drafted into the Swiss defence in place of the disappointing Philippe Senderos against Honduras.
Possible starting lineups
Argentina: Romero, Zabaleta, Garay, Fernandez, Rojo, Gago, Mascherano, Di Maria, Lavezzi, Messi, Higuain
Switzerland: Benaglio, Lichtsteiner, Inler, Xhaka, Behrami, Rodriguez, Mehmedi, Drmic, Djourou, Schaer, Shaqiri
