Chile vs Bolivia: Prediction and Betting Tips
Chile off to a good start
In their opening match of the Copa America, Chile grabbed a precious point from Argentina. La Roja were more on the defensive despite sharing almost equal ball possession with their opponents. After going down by a goal in the first half though, Vargas equalized in the second half after the ball rebounded from Vidal’s penalty.
Newly appointed coach Lasarte will be more than happy with the result of his team who are in a transition period and were missing star player Alexis Sanchez. Chile had just five attempts on goal with four of them on target. Their keeper Claudio Bravo had to make some crucial saves as they survived Messi and teammates 18 clear chances.
Chile key Stats
- Chile have beaten Bolivia twice in their last four matches
- Both teams have scored in Chile’s eight of last ten matches
- In just two of their last ten matches, Chile had clean sheets
Bolivia playing for the least of damages
This is the third match in three months that Bolivia will play Chile. In their most recent clash on June 9th, Bolivia salvaged a point from Chile in the World Cup qualifying match. It was a very tough match for coach Farias’ team as they were completely dominated by Chile and had very rare chances through the counter-attacks.
In their opening match, Bolivia lost to Paraguay 3-1 in a match where Farias’ team were also dominated by their opponents. Just 22% of ball possession was Bolivia’s share in the match in which they managed two shots on goal.
Coach Farias is adopting a very defensive tactic in his matches and having paid off in their WCQ match against Chile, he hopes they can have a similar result against La Roja on Saturday.
Bolivia Key Stats
- Nine of the last ten Bolivia matches saw both teams score
- Bolivia had no clean sheets in the last ten matches
- Having failed to score in just one of their last ten matches, Bolivia are a good scoring team
Chile vs Bolivia Prediction
Chile will do their best to build on their good start to Copa America when they drew their toughest match of the group with Argentina. The draw in the WCQ must be taken into consideration to avoid similar mistakes if they want to grab the three points
Bolivia on the other hand will take that draw as a motivation for this game. They score goals as we saw in their stats but their defense has conceded 2.2 goals per game in the last ten matches.
Looking at their stats and their last ten matches we can see that both teams have scored in the majority of their matches. Despite the bookies favoring both teams not scoring in this game, we will take a risk and follow the statistics, and back both will score.
