Peru vs Bolivia
World Cup Qualification – South America
Date: Friday, 12 November 2021
Kick-off at 02:00 UK / 03:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional de Lima.

This is one of the last trains to catch for Peru and they just can’t afford another failure. They do have the second-worst attacking record in the entire qualifying section, but they are up against Bolivia who shipped 18 goals in 6 away matches so far in the competition.

Peru vs Bolivia Head-to-head

  • Peru were on a four-win streak against Bolivia before the last month’s 1-0 defeat in La Paz.
  • Bolivia are winless in the last ten away clashes against Peru (five defeats and draws apiece).
  • Peru scored 18 goals in the last 10 home clashes against Bolivia.

Peru vs Bolivia Predictions

Peru are heading towards the 13th round clash with Bolivia with an imperative to pick up a three-pointer. The hosts can ill afford another slip-up being five points shy of the positions that lead to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

They are even behind Bolivia in the South American World Cup Qualification standings following the back-to-back defeats to Bolivia and Argentina. Nevertheless, the head coach Ricardo Gareca still had some positives to take from the previous round’s clash with Argentina.

Peru held Lionel Messi & company to just seven attempts (only two on target) in a narrow 1-0 defeat in a match in which the Peruvians missed a penalty (Yoshimar Yotun) midway through the second half.

Moving forward, Peru are now about to play Bolivia at home. The Bolivians are a completely different team when they play at home and on the road. The team led by Cesar Farias thus claimed no more than two points from six matches away from home in this qualifying term.

Bolivia conceded as many as 18 goals in these 6 away outings (three per game).

Key Stats

  • Peru won two and drew one of the last three home fixtures in the World Cup Qualification campaign.
  • They have conceded only one goal in the process.
  • Bolivia lost each of the last three away qualifiers, shipping as many as 10 goals along the way.
  • Bolivia lost their last two away games with an identical 3-0 scoreline.
