Bolivia will face Venezuela this Thursday June 3, 2021 for the Matchday 7 of the South American World Cup Qualifiers at the Estadio Olímpico Hernando Siles in La Paz. The host expects to win for the first time in the Qualifiers, while Venezuela will try to get points from the visit. Find out here the confirmed lineups for this match.
Both teams will try to get out of the bottom of the table. While Bolivia is in last place, Venezuela is currently at eighth position. Bolivia only has one point from their draw with Paraguay, while Venezuela added three points from its victory over Chile.
Playing in La Paz will be very difficult for La Vinotinto. In fact, they have only won once in Bolivia’s capital. It was 12 years ago, in 2009, when Bolivia’s coach Cesar Farias was actually in charge of the Venezuelans. At the moment, Farias hasn’t found his way to victory with La Verde.
The game to be played between Bolivia and Venezuela for Matchday 7 of the South American World Cup Qualifiers 2022 will be broadcast by Fubo TV, who has exclusive streaming rights in the US.
