Venezuela vs Bolivia – Team news and potential lineups
While Venezuela has no chance to get to the World Cup, Bolivia is still in play for a place in Qatar. So, let's take a closer look at both teams:
The team that lost five of the last six games in the group and only managed to collect seven points from fourteen games has long said goodbye to any chances of reaching the World Cup in Qatar, so Venezuela only has to play for honor and FIFA rankings. Of course, that's not nothing and the team will certainly try to leave a better impression in the remaining matches.
Venezuela has no major absences for this match and we expect to see all the familiar faces in the starting lineup, led by Rondon and Rincon as the two main stars of the team.
Venezuela predicted lineup:
Farinez – Hernandez, Osorio, Ferraresi, Gonzalez – Otero, Moreno, Rincon, Machis – Gonzalez – Rondon
With 15 points from 14 games in these World Cup Qualifiers, Bolivia is currently in eighth spot in the standings. However, Colombia only has two points more and they are fourth, so there is still a lot of time left for things to change in the last four rounds of the Qualifiers and Bolivia is one of the teams that will try to find their place in Qatar, or at least in the playoffs.
Just like Venezuela, Bolivia also has no issues with health and absences and they will be able to field their best team in this game, including known names like Fernandez and Moreno.
Bolivia predicted lineup:
Lampe – Bejarano, Haquin, Sagredo – Saavedra, Justiniano, Villaroel, Fernandez – Abrego, Arce, Moreno
