Uruguay vs Bolivia Predictions


Boosted by a superb win in Argentina, Uruguay should have little difficulty taking care of Bolivia. 

I´m backing the hosts to win with at least three match goals scored in Montevideo. 

  • Uruguay have won 6 of their last 8 home matches (World Cup qualifiers)
  • Uruguay have seen over 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 11 home victories (World Cup qualifiers)
  • Uruguay have seen at least 5 goals scored in their last 5 home wins against Bolivia
  • Bolivia have lost their last 8 away matches (World Cup qualifiers)
  • Bolivia have seen over 2.5 goals in 11 of their last 13 away matches (World Cup qualifiers)

Head to Head


Uruguay has an 11-to-3 advantage in their H2H record against Bolivia. La Celeste claimed a 4-2 win when these nations last met in Montevideo in 2021. 

Bolivia have failed to beat Uruguay in all six previous away World Cup qualifiers since 2000. 

Uruguay Form


After a superb 2-1 win against Brazil in October, Uruguay claimed the scalp of World Champions Argentina with a stunning 2-0 win in Buenos Aires on Thursday. Goals from Ronald Araujo and Darwin Nunez were enough to condemn the hosts to only their second defeat in 51 matches.

With just one loss in their last ten matches, Marcelo Bielsa´s men have taken ten points from a possible 15 in the South American World Cup qualification campaign. 

La Celeste also boast a fine home record, which has seen them lose just five of 42 World Cup qualifiers since 2004. Only Argentina and Brazil have managed to win in Montevideo during that period. 

Uruguay Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Sergio Rochet, Santiago Mele, Franco Israel
Defenders: José Giménez, Matías Viña, Mathías Olivera, Guillermo Varela, Ronald Araújo, Sebastián Cáceres, Bruno Méndez
Midfielders: Rodrigo Bentancur, Federico Valverde (captain), Giorgian de Arrascaeta, Nicolás de la Cruz, Manuel Ugarte, Felipe Carballo, Maximiliano Araújo
Forwards: Luis Suárez, Darwin Núñez, Facundo Pellistri, Facundo Torres, Agustín Canobbio, Cristian Olivera, Federico Viñas

Bielsa has no fresh injury issues after Thursday´s remarkable win in Argentina. Jose Maria Gimenez and Rodrigo Bentancur are both in contention for a recall after their appearances as second-half substitutes. 

Nahitan Nandez is the only notable injury absence for La Celeste.

Bolivia Form


Bolivia finally picked up their first points of the qualification campaign after a 2-0 win against Peru last Thursday. Antônio Carlos Zago´s side had lost their first four qualifiers over the past couple of months. 

La Verde have a truly miserable road record though, having lost 48 and drawn seven off 55 away qualification games since 2000. Bolivia have also lost 11 of their 13 most recent away fixtures.

Bolivia Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Carlos Lampe, Guillermo Viscarra, Braulio Uraezaña
Defenders: José Sagredo, Luis Haquin, Jairo Quinteros, Jesús Sagredo, Diego Medina, Carlos Roca, Marcelo Suárez, Héctor Cuéllar
Midfielders: Leonel Justiniano, Rodrigo Ramallo, Danny Bejarano, Ramiro Vaca, Moisés Villarroel, Jaime Arrascaita, Boris Céspedes, Gabriel Villamil, Miguel Terceros
Forwards: Marcelo Martins (captain), Henry Vaca, Bruno Miranda, Víctor Ábrego, Jeyson Chura, Jaume Cuéllar

Gustavo Costas will be tempted to keep faith with the same XI that scored their first World Cup qualification victory of the year. However, teenager Miguel Terceros could drop out after he was replaced after 45 minutes against Peru. 

Henry Vaca should keep his place in the Bolivian attack after he netted his first international goal on his 21st appearance last week. 

Verdict

Anything short of a convincing home win would be a surprise on Tuesday.

I expect Uruguay to claim a straightforward win with at least three goals expected at the Estadio Centenario.
