We’re in the second round of Copa America 2019 and in the Group A, Bolivia will try to win their first points; Peru will do all they can to stop them. These two teams meet at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday evening. It’s dubbed as the match that could decide the second place in the group and such, it’s predicted to be very entertaining. If you want to make it even more interesting, why not wager some money on it? To help you make the right choice, we’ve prepared for you Bolivia vs Peru prediction and betting tips.
They lost in the first round to the host of the tournament, Brazil. But, they shouldn’t be too disappointed. They were expected to lose this match, but they did put on a good performance, especially in the first half. Everyone was expecting Brazil to hammer them, but it was 3:0 at the end of 90 minutes, while the score at the half time was 0:0. And one of those goals was scored from a penalty.
All of this shows that Bolivia can be a pretty tough nut to crack, even for such attacking-minded teams as Brazil. Another fact showing that Bolivia can play well defensively is that the defeat to Brazil is the only one out of the previous 10 games they played, in which they allowed more than two goals.
Our Bolivia vs Peru prediction is that this team is going to use the same tactics as in the game against Brazil. They’re going to defend with all they got and look for their chances from the break. They know their limits, so they won’t rush and attack. Getting a draw here would be something they could build on. The thing is that they play against Venezuela in the final game of the group stage. Peru, on the other hand, plays against Brazil.
They failed to beat Venezuela, one of the teams considered the worst in South America. Venezuela finished on the very bottom of the group in the qualifiers for the World Cup; Peru managed to get a ticket to Russia.
The problem is that the players who do the most work in getting Peru to qualify for the World Cup 2018 are already in their thirties. Actually, two of Peru’s key attackers, Guerrero and Farfan were born in 1984. And the advancing age of their crucial players might be the reason why they failed to score against Venezuela, even though this team played with 10 men for about 15 minutes.
But, they need to go for a win against Bolivia. Considering that in the third round, they play Brazil, the clash with Bolivia is the decisive game for Peru. Losing it would probably mean saying farewell to the tournament. But, even a draw wouldn’t please them much. Only a win would ensure Peru gets to the knockouts.
