Bolivia suffered a heavy defeat in their last match at the hands of Venezuela 4-1. That was a huge setback for the Greens as they could have been within one point of the fifth position had they triumphed over bottom-placed Venezuela. Now with three rounds remaining for the conclusion of the South American qualifiers, Bolivia need a win to keep their chances alive for a playoff berth.

However, coach Cesar Farias’s team must improve immensely from their last performance in Barinas. To illustrate, the Greens had just one shot at goal from which they scored their only goal. In a word, Bolivia were completely outplayed by their hosts.

Chile lost their last two matches which endangered their chances of finishing in the top five and qualifying for a tenth World Cup. Moreover, they face a dangerous trip to La Paz where they lost the last time they visited 1-0 and a draw or defeat here will mean they might miss the World Cup for the second straight time.

In the last round, La Roja couldn’t take advantage of playing at home against an Argentina side without Lionel Messi. And with Brazil and Uruguay still to play, Chile need an extraordinary effort to go through. Nonetheless, coach Martin Lasarte’s team will put up a fight in La Paz to come back with at least a point.

Sebouh Babikian prediction for Bolivia vs Chile

Bolivia and Chile still have a chance to finish top five at the end of these qualifications. Surely it will be a very close match and both teams prefer to win at least a point rather than lose all three. Hence, we think both coaches may settle for a draw in this one.

Quick Rich

The most obvious correct score for this match is 1-1, the same result that ended their previous match in the current WCQ match in Chile. In addition, this result has the best odds with 5.40 which makes it a great contender for a quick profit. 

Bolivia vs Chile First Goalscorer

Veteran Juan Arce has 86 caps for the Bolivian national team. The 36-year-old has 16 goals for his country and scored twice in the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Uruguay, both of them being the first goal of the match. Acre has vast experience in these kinds of matches and will be a great asset for his team. We will back him to open the scoring in this match.

Coach Farias will be without suspended Justiniano who was red-carded against Venezuela. All other players are available at the time of writing. The 3-4-3 formation backfired for Farias in Barinas and with Chile playing a similar 4-2-3-1 as Venezuela, Farias might have second thoughts about his tactics.

Arturo Vidal is back for Chile after he served a suspension against Argentina. The experienced midfielder is a key player in coach Lasarte’s lineup due to his experience. The main doubt for this match is goalkeeper Claudio Bravo who was injured in the last game and was substituted. Nonetheless, all outfield players are fit for Lasarte to select from.
