Colombia vs Bolivia Prediction, Tips & Offers

Colombia vs Bolivia Prediction

Colombia will meet with Bolivia at the Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez this Thursday night with both sides looking like outsiders in the World Cup qualifiers here as both sides sit a great deal away from the top four automatic spots in the South American group.

Bolivia are currently two points behind their opponents here, and with this now creating a seven-point gap on fourth-placed Uruguay with only three games left to play, it's fair to say that their hopes and dreams of making it to the World Cup at the end of this year could well die in this game here. A defeat and even a draw would not be good enough for them to mathematically stay on track, and the nation now need to miraculously win every game from now until the end and hope the likes of Chile, Peru, and Uruguay drop points.

It is now the perfect time for them to play against Colombia, as three points in this game pushes them above them in the table. However, James Rodriguez and co. are closer to the top four automatic qualification spots with only a five-point gap to deal with, but with only three wins all campaign long from 16 games, even Bolivia have won more, while this torrid record is the same as bottom-placed Venezuela.

Colombia should, however, get the job done here and we predict they will get the win and give themselves a fighting chance of qualifying for Qatar 2022.

Colombia team news

David Ospina remains the main man between the sticks for Colombia and he is expected to play here once more with Camilo Vargas as the number two. Davinson Sánchez will close in on his 50th cap as well in this one, as he is expected to pick up cap number 48 against Bolivia. William Tesillo, Stefan Medina, Frank Fabra, and John Mojica could play as the defensive back four here. James Rodriguez has 23 goals in 84 caps for his country, and he is still the main man in attack with Radamel Falcao in and out of the squad these days - he is not in attendance here.

Juan Cuadrado plays as a right-back for Juventus and has done for many seasons, but with Colombia, Mateus Uribe, Wilmar Barrios and Jefferson Lerma should play in a midfield four with Rogriguez. Luis Muriel should stay down the middle too, with Luis Diaz expected now after such a great start to life at Liverpool

Bolivia team news

There have been changes to the goalkeeper situation at Bolivia recently, and with all three recent call-ups for the keeper spots playing in their homeland, either Rubén Cordano or Guillermo Viscarra could play here. Jose Sagredo, Luis Haquin, Roberto Fernandez and Inter Miami\s Jairo Quinteros should play in defence. In midfield, Ramiro Vaca is the only man who plays in Europe for Bolivia, and he is expected along with Argentina-based, Franz Gonzales. Jeyson Chura could also play here, along with Moises Villarroel. Up top, expect Henry Vaca to play once more, along with Bruno Miranda and maybe Victor Abrego, as the latter two play each week together for Bolivar in their homeland.
