Bolivia – Fourth successive home win can revive qualifying aspirations?

La Verde won’t have given up all hope quite yet on reaching their first World Cup finals since 1994, despite suffering a setback away to rock-bottom Venezuela on Friday evening. Morale would have been high after taking nine points from the last twelve available. This didn’t translate onto the pitch, however, as a chastening 4-1 loss that could so easily have been more leaves them back in eighth place (W4 D3 L8).

They will fancy their chances of bouncing straight back though. That is because playing in La Paz, some 3,000 meters above sea level, has historically been a massive leveller for them, enabling them to record some big upsets. In this qualifying campaign alone, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela were all defeated, Colombia held, while Argentina had to come from behind to clinch a narrow victory.

Key Stat: 13 of the 15 points Bolivia have earned in 2022 World Cup qualifying came when playing at home. They have won each of their three previous home qualifiers, beating all of Paraguay (4-0), Peru (1-0) and Uruguay (3-0) to nil.


Bolivia WIN TO NIL



Chile – La Roja on the brink and needing to win?

Having been forced to watch on from the sidelines as France reigned supreme in Russia four years ago, Chile now look set to miss out on World Cup qualification for a second time in succession. Martin Lasarte and his players are essentially in last chance saloon following Argentina’s 2-1 defeat of La Roja in Santiago in the last round, languishing in seventh (W4 D4 L7) aware that any further slip ups would likely prove fatal.

Chile must make up a three point deficit to even make the intercontinental play-off and have only three games in which to pull it off. They probably have the toughest remaining schedule as well. Nobody has gotten the better of Brazil so far; Bolivia are aiming to win four consecutive home games without conceding; and Uruguay are finishing strongly after taking the bold step of replacing long-serving manager Oscar Tabarez.

Key Stat: Chile have struggled away from home in 2022 World Cup qualifying, collecting five out of a possible 24 points (W1 D2 L5) whilst scoring just five times. Netting under 1.5 goals in all seven said matches.

A draw in La Paz would be detrimental to both these teams chances of making the tournament in Qatar in December. However, splitting them isn’t going to be easy.
