We’ll start this Brazil vs Bolivia prediction by saying that Neymar is out. Due to an injury, Neymar was left out of the squad, but the rest of the team is made up of pretty much the best players Brazil has to offer at this moment. All the big stars are there, which makes Brazil the number one favorite to win the Copa America trophy.

Another reason why they’re big contenders for the title is that the tournament is taking place on their turf. And when playing in front of their own crowd, Brazil have always been sensational. This team is without a defeat in their home country since the 1990s.

Not only are they the biggest favorites for winning the trophy but it also seems like a mission impossible for Bolivia to get anything out of this game. Anything other than a convincing Brazil victory would be a major surprise. And it’s not just because Brazil are awesome; it’s also because Bolivia are pretty bad.


This team is predicted to finish on the very bottom of the table of the Group A of Copa America. And the reason is that the players Bolivia has are pretty bad. They simply don’t come anywhere near the players of the other three teams in the group, Peru, Venezuela, and of course, Brazil.

The thing is that most of the players from this squad play in the Bolivian domestic league. Actually, 20 of them do. And the Bolivian División Profesional isn’t considered a top football league. The players who aren’t based in clubs from Bolivia play in Mexico (two play for Puebla) and China. Actually, their most prolific goal-scorer, Marcelo Martins is a Shijiazhuang Ever Bright player.

Bolivia also have a pretty bad record with Brazil, having won only four matches since the 1930s. And it’s needless to say that most of the matches these two played finished in Brazil’s favor. They did manage to pull off a 0:0 draw in the last meeting with Brazil, which is exactly what they’re hoping to do this time as well. You can be sure Bolivia are going to defend with all they got, but will that be enough to snatch a point of Brazil? Find it out in the Brazil vs Bolivia betting tips!

Possible Lineups


Ederson – Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Dani Alves, Alex Sandro – Casemiro, Arthur, Allan – Coutinho, Willian, Firmino

Brazil vs Bolivia Prediction

There’s no doubt Brazil will win this. If they don’t, it’s gonna be one of the major upsets in the history of Brazilian football. The bad news is that the bookies also know that Brazil are going to win this game, which is why the odds on them are pretty unattractive.

This is why in order to make some money, you better bet on a large number of goals in the net of Bolivia. We should see a lot of them. Probably three or more.
