Bolivia vs Argentina
World Cup Qualifiers South America
Date: Tuesday, 13 October 2020
Kick-Off at 21.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Hernando Siles, La Paz.
The second round of World Cup South American Qualifiers is on during the mid-week. It will start in La Paz where Bolivia welcomes Argentina.
There were plenty of duels between these two teams at Bolivian capital in the past, and some of them offered quite shocking results.
All teams that visit this city high up in the mountains usually complain on difficult air condition, which obviously goes in favour of the hosts who are accustomed to this.
Still, Argentina are labelled as huge favorites for the win at 1.65 odds which doesn’t come as a surprise after seeing Bolivia lose 5-0 in their opening match.
Bolivia vs Argentina Head-to-head
There were 16 head to head duels between these opponents in the past. Stats are going in favour of Argentina 10 to 2, but situation when it comes to La Paz games is different. Bolivia have won two out of six encounters, two ended as a draw, two without a winner.
The most recent meeting was played at this venue in 2017, won by Bolivia 2-0. Goal scorers in that match were Arce and Martins.
The last five games played between them always ended with BTTS NO option.
Bolivia vs Argentina Prediction
Argentina’s initial appearance in World Cup Qualifiers was far from impressive. They managed to narrowly beat Ecuador 1-0 thanks to Leo Messi’s goal in the first half. We wouldn’t be surprised to see many changes made by Lionel Scaloni for this upcoming match.
Acuna and Ocampos probably disappointed the most. Prior to these official matches Gauchos had a great time in friendly duels, beating Brazil, Ecuador and drawing against Uruguay, scoring the grand total of nine goals in those encounters. They are missing some stars like Aguero and Di Maria for these matches though.
Bolivia’s most recent results are a catastrophe. This squad got defeated in nine out of the last ten appearances, managing to beat Haiti only in a friendly match. We don’t see them causing any trouble to Argentina on Tuesday night, maybe scoring one goal at most.
