Brazil and Argentina will try to kick-start their World Cup qualifying campaigns Tuesday after opening losses but withdrawals have hit two teams already suffering without their stand-out strikers.Argentina face a tough task in Paraguay with Carlos Tevez likely to start up front in place of the injured Sergio Aguero.Aguero limped off midway through the first half of Argentina's 2-0 loss at home to Ecuador last week, his injury a blow to a side already without Lionel Messi, who is out for two months with a knee injury.Four of the 10 teams go through automatically and the fifth face a playoff but Argentina and Brazil have never both started their campaigns with defeats.
