Bolivia vs Argentina: Smooth success for La Albiceleste

Kick-off: 0100, 29/06/2021

Stadium: Arena Pantanal

TV: BBC Digital

Argentina should have little trouble in wrapping up top spot in Copa America Group A when taking on basement dwellers Bolivia.

La Verde will be heading home whatever happens in Cuiaba and have scored only one goal in three straight defeats so far.

As for La Albiceleste, they have picked up seven points out of nine but have netted just once in each of their matches.

That makes 20/23 for the favourites to oblige and under 3.5 goals in the game look a rock-solid Bolivia vs Argentina prediction.

A Look At Bolivia’s Betting Odds

Bolivia started the tournament brightly when Erwin Saavedra put them ahead against Paraguay via a 10th-minute penalty but it has been all downhill since.

La Verde went on to lose that game 3-1 before being beaten 1-0 by Chile and 2-0 by Uruguay.

The underdogs will take heart from a memorable 2-0 triumph over Argentina in a World Cup qualifier just over four years ago.

However, they have lost the other five of their last six meetings and an ageing forward line no longer carries much of a threat.

Looking at the 19/4 for La Albiceleste to prevail 2-0 is fair value.

A Look At Argentina’s Betting Odds

Argentina last tasted defeat in the semi-finals of this competition two years ago and are currently on a 16-match unbeaten run.

They kicked off with a 1-1 draw versus Chile and went on to grind out 1-0 victories over Uruguay and Paraguay.

All of their goals have come in the first half of matches and, in fact, La Albiceleste’s last nine strikes have been netted before the break.

That makes 21/10 for the opening period to be the highest-scoring half worth adding to our Bolivia vs Argentina betting tips.

Lionel Scaloni’s side have also been in front after a quarter of an hour in three of their most recent four fixtures.

Punters can get 9/4 for that to be the case once again here.
