Copa America – Play-off: Bolivia vs Peru Preview, Betting Tips and Prediction

Bolivia will face Peru in the second match of Copa America Quarter-finals at Estadio Municipal German Becker in Temuco. Bolivia shocked everyone in the tournament by reaching on the second spot of the table of Group A after defeating Ecuador and drawing against Mexico but crushed at the hands of Chile in their last group match. Bolivia sits second in the league standings this season with 4 points having won 1 game, drawn 1 and lost 1. On the other hand, Peru also finished second in their group including very strong teams Brazil and Colombia. The team have started their campaign with a 2-1 defeat against the Brazil, a win against Venezuela with a score of 1-0 and a 1-1 draw against Colombia. Peru sits second in the league with 4 points having won 1 game, drawn 1 and lost 1. Bolivia and Peru were considered underdogs in the tournament but the teams stunned everyone by reaching Copa America quarter-finals.

Both teams are in decent form over the past few months, with Bolivia having won two games, lost two and drawn one in their last five games and Peru having won one game, lost three and drawn one from their last five games. In the last five meetings between the teams, Peru have won one game and four games ended in draw.

Bolivia boasts off veterans Marcelo Moreno, forward player Ricardo Pedriel, midfielder Martin Smedberg and goalkeeper Romel Quinonez. Peru have good experienced players with the likes of Claudio Pizarro, Paolo Guerrero, and Carlos Lobatón to take them through the quarters. There are no injury concerns from Bolivia side, but Peru will miss captain Carlos Lobatón and midfielder Josepmir Ballón against Bolivia in the quarter-final match.

Peru are in better shape than Bolivia when taking past performances into consideration and are expected to progress to the semi-finals in the tournament. Peru are clearly a stronger side in all areas of the game and have better defense than Bolivia in the competition. We expect Peru will be victorious here.

Possible Lineups:

Bolivia: Quiñónez; Hurtado, Raldes, Zenteno, Morales; Campos, Chumacero, Bejarano, Smedberg-Dalence; Pedriel, Moreno

Peru: Gallese; Advincula, Zambrano, Ascues, Vargas; Sánchez, Ballón, Lobatón, Cueva; Pizarro, Guerrero
