Bolivia vs Chile
World Cup Qualifiers – South America
Date: Tuesday, 5th September 2017
Kick-off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Hernando Siles, La Paz.
The national squad of Bolivia welcomes Chile at Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz. Both teams have suffered a defeat in their respective matches played on Thursday, so Chile will be aiming to get back onto the track immediately.
After 15 matches played, Bolivia are in the penultimate position with only 10 points earned. They earned seven out of ten points on the home turf, despite starting off with the two home defeats. After the 2-2 draw with Ecuador, Bolivia strung two home victories. They beat Paraguay 1-0 at first, but then they stunned Argentina with 2-0. High altitude is one of the greatest Bolivia’s advantages in home games as Estadio Hernando Siles sits at the altitude higher than 3500 meters above the sea level.
Copa America winners Chile were stunned by one of the weakest sides in CONMEBOL as Paraguay bested them 0-3. Arturo Vidal scored an own goal in the first half, but Paraguay were simply a better team in the second half two as they netted two more.
Chile are now fourth with 23 points – same point tally as Argentina who are breathing at their necks, so the pressure is huge ahead of the difficult La Paz visit.
Bolivia vs Chile: Head-to-head
The visitors have a magnificent record against Bolivia who are winless since 2000. Last five matches went to Chile’s national team with only one ending as a draw.
Bolivia vs Chile: Prediction
Bolivia are making the fortress out of Estadio Hernando Siles, but taking Chile’s head to head record against the home team, their advantage can’t be given too much weight. Chile must perform following the horrendous home defeat by Paraguay, so the pressure is huge on them, but they have the individual quality to overcome the challenge.
