Bolivia – Brazil: Preview & Prediction

Valuable for the seventeenth (penultimate) round of the competition for places in the World Cup, the game takes place from 17h (Brasília time) at the Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz.

Analysis of Bolivia:

Bolivia are in ninth place in the qualifiers and can not improve this situation.

With 13 points (four wins, one draw and 11 losses) he has no chance to fight for a place in the World Cup or even reach Ecuador, eighth with 20 points added.

His only goal in the two games that are lacking is to avoid staying in the flashlight. For this, it does not need much. Venezuela, last placed, is five points behind and will hardly be able to overcome the Bolivians.

For the last double round of qualifying, coach Mauricio Soria will not be able to count on one of his main players. With a bruise on his right knee, midfielder and striker Pablo Escobar can not be called.

Analysis of Brazil:

The Brazilian team has achieved the two possible goals in the qualifiers.

It was the first to mathematically guarantee the qualification for the Russian World Cup and then secured the first place in the dispute. Thus, to face the altitude of La Paz to face Bolivia is a mere fulfillment of table.

In this campaign so far, Brazil has scored 37 points in 16 games, scored 38 goals and suffered 11.

The technician Tite should take advantage of this game to do some tests, since in this summoning brought new players, compared to the last. Even so I think that initially will keep the base team that have been giving good results.

Prediction Bolivia vs Brazil:


This game could be considered as friendly right? But not for Tite who always makes a point of saying that we need to improve every game to get the best prepared Cup possible.

I know that facing Brazil is always special for the Bolivians, counting on altitute of La Paz could bring certain difficulties for Brazilian selection.

Even so, because of the technical quality, the campaign and the way Brazil has been playing, I can not imagine a result other than victory. The goal now is to finish the qualifiers in the best possible way.
