Venezuela vs Bolivia: prediction for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier
Venezuela have practically no chance of qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar. Leonardo Gonzalez's charges have chalked up 7 points from 14 games and sit bottom of the CONMEBOL qualification table. The second-last Paraguay have 6 points more than La Vinotinto. In the last round of games, Venezuela lost to Peru (1:2), which was their third defeat in a row.
Bolivia haven't been very successful either, but they have retained a chance for a ticket to Qatar. César Farías' men are currently in 8th place in the standings with a total of 15 points, 2 points shy of reaching the top-5. La Verdewon 3 out of 5 previous qualifying games, including the victory over Uruguay (3:0) in the last match.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 3 head-to-head games.
Venezuela scored in the second half in their last 2 home games.
Venezuela conceded in the first half in the last 2 home games.
Venezuela are not going to Qatar this year, but Gonzalez is building a new team, and La Vinotinto looked decent in their last home games. Bolivia have always struggled on their travels and we doubt that they will be able to keep a clean sheet, but we expect La Verde to go forward and use their scoring chances.
Our prediction - both to score
We believe that Venezuela will be able to capitalize on their home advantage and get the upper hand over Bolovia, who haven't won away during this qualification.
Second bet - Venezuela to win
