Stadium: Estadio Olímpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira (Goiânia)
The second round of Group A of the Copa America 2021 will begin with a match between Chile and Bolivia. The Chileans are quoted as the big favorites among this pair, which is not surprising given the limited capacities of the Bolivians.
Chile: not a bad start in the Copa
The Chilean national team draw series continues, the Reds have already played three consecutive matches with a score of 1-1, including the match of the first round of the Copa against Argentina. According to statistics, the Chileans were not so much inferior to their opponent, well, except for the number of shots to the goal. It should be noted that the Chilean national team once again played under the scheme 4-3-3, this time Vargas was at the tip. By the same scheme, the Chilean national team played with the Argentinians in qualifying for the World Cup 2022, as well as in March against Bolivia, which ended with a score of 2-1 in favor of Chile. But in the game qualifying for the World Cup against the same national team of Bolivia in June, the Reds were playing three defenders, the scheme 3-4-3. And this tactical arrangement ended in failure for Chile, a tie against the outsider, 1-1.
The Bolivian national team: minimum opportunities for goals
Surprisingly, despite its extremely weak lineup, the Bolivian national team manages to regularly score against its opponents, and not only in the high altitude of La Paz, but also in away matches. The Chileans and the Bolivian team scored twice, as well as the Argentinians against the Paraguayans. In the first round match of the Copa 2021, the Bolivian national team lost to Paraguay with a score of 1-3. The Bolivians responded to Kaku's goal and Romero's double by Saavedra.
