Venezuela vs Bolivia: Prediction
These two teams are in equally bad form, but Venezuela could go in as favourites to win this one on the back of their good head-to-head record at home against Bolivia. Also Bolivia have lost all their 5 away matches in the qualifying campaign this term. It is fair to say that they are win-less on the road since in qualifiers since calendar year 2000. Venezuela can be backed for a win and it is a worthy option at the odds of 1.60. This one could be used as a banker for combination and accumulator bets.
Considering the defensive vulnerabilities of both teams, we might well see over 2.5 goals on Wednesday.
