Bolivia vs Chile – Team news and potential lineups
Both teams are in a tough spot in their quest to reach the main stage of World Cup and this match can cut their hopes completely. So, let's take a closer look at both teams.
With 15 points from 15 games in so far, Bolivia is currently in eighth in the group and their chances of reaching World Cup have dropped significantly after their loss to Venezuela. That being said, there are still three rounds left to play and Bolivia could turn things around, but they will likely have to win all of their remaining matches to have a chance.
Bolivia has no issues with health at the moment and they will be able to play their top team in this game, including known players like Fernandez and Moreno. However, Justiniano will have to serve a suspension after being sent off in the last game.
Bolivia predicted lineup:
Lampe – Bejarano, Quinteros, Sagredo – Ramallo, Vaca, Villarroel, Fernandez – Arce – Miranda, Moreno
After a bad start to these Qualifiers, Chile managed to get in form and turn things around, giving themselves a chance to get to the World Cup. However, after three straight wins, Chile lost two in a row and now they are not in a great situation since they are seventh in the group and four points behind the spot that leads to the World Cup directly. That being said, there are three more rounds to go and Chile can get back into the race if they can go on a good run.
Good news for the Chile is the fact that they are nearly complete. The bad news is that they will be without their best player Vidal. Also, Bravo suffered an injury in the last game and he will likely have to sit out this game too.
Chile predicted lineup:
Cortes – Isla, Maripan, Medel, Vegas – Pulgar, Aranguiz – Vargas, Nunez, Sanchez – Brereton Diaz
