Bolivia faces Peru in a match from Group A of Copa America
Bolivia faces Peru in a match from Group A of Copa America. Let’s take a look at this clash in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Bolivia had the tough task to start their Copa America campaign against the home team of the competition and one of the big favourites for the trophy Brazil. This game opened the tournament. The match was played in Sao Paulo and ended with a 3-0 win for Selecao.
The truth is that Bolivia did well in the first half of the game, which ended without any goals scored. This gave the Bolivians some hope that they might take something from this game. But their hopes were crushed in the second half, when Brazil scored three times. Barcelona’s star Phillippe Coutinho scored a brace for Selecao, while Everton added one more for the five time world champions.
Meanwhile Peru started their Copa America campaign with a draw. At the Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre, Ricardo Gareca’s team made a 0-0 draw against Venezuela. Of course, this was not welcomed as a success in Peru, because Venezuela are usually in the role of an underdog. It remains to be seen if this draw could hurt Peru’s chances of reaching the 1/4-finals of the tournament.
This match between Bolivia and Peru is very important for both teams, simply because they didn’t win their first games in the group. A win here could mean a lot for the team which takes the three points. Especially the Peruvians know this, because their third game in the group is going to be against Brazil.
That’s our winning soccer predictions for today at the Copa America game from Group A between Bolivia and Peru. One of these two teams could make an important step towards the knockout phase. But who?
