After an opening draw with Venezuela, Peru have a great opportunity of consolidating second place in Group A when they take on Bolivia in their second round Copa America clash. Form Labs breaks down the clash while as ever we bring you the value with our selection of enhanced odds.
Bolivia Outplayed By Brazil
Bolivia limited a Brazil side booed by the home crowd to three goals in the tournament’s curtain raiser, making the Selecao wait until the second half to break the deadlock, though they were utterly dominated with Tite’s men enjoying 74% of possession and winning the shot count 20-5.
With the other two sides in Group A – Venezuela and Peru – playing out a goalless stalemate, Bolivia are still very much in with a chance of making the knockouts.
Peru Left Frustrated
However, Peru will have been left frustrated by their failure to land an opening day win having had a pair of strikes ruled out for offside, while Venezuela were under intense pressure for the final 15 minutes as they went down to 10 men and also had to rely upon goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez to save well from close range late on.
Bolivia v Peru Betting Tips
Peru have won each of the last three head-to-head meetings between these two sides going back to 2015 by a combined score of 8-2, and their prospects of another three points should rest solely upon their ability to find the net, with Bolivia struggling badly in that regard.
Indeed, La Verde are a poor W1-D7-L9 since October 2017 and have failed to score in six of their last seven fixtures, losing their last four without registering a single successful effort as these outings came under Eduardo Villegas, who was only appointed to the role in February this year.
Peru are much more settled with Ricardo Gareca at the helm since February 2015, and that extra time coaching on the training field should help them shut out their opponents with eight of their last nine victories yielding a clean sheet.
