Liga del Futbol Profesional Boliviano Review: Bolivar go top, Blooming slip up

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 16 Sep 2014


An impressive Bolivar moved top of the Liga del Futbol Profesional Boliviano as Blooming faltered again.

Juanmi Callejon scored a brace as Bolivar thrashed Oriente Petrolero 4-0 at the Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz.

Xabier Azkargorta’s men have three wins in five games to sit top, level on points with Blooming in a tight Apertura campaign.

Carlos Tenorio tapped in the easiest of openers on Sunday to make it 1-0 in the 33rd minute.

Callejon’s first came four minutes before half-time and in style as the former Real Madrid youth player curled a 25-yard free-kick over the defensive wall and into the bottom corner.

He got on the end of a long pass to head in a second in the 72nd minute before Oscar Rodas sealed the win in additional time with a header of his own.

Blooming failed to win for the second straight game as they came from behind twice to draw 2-2 at home to Sport Boys.

A corner led to the visitors going ahead in the fourth minute as Rolando Barra headed in to make it 1-0.

Sergio Almiron scrambled in the equaliser moments later after a set-piece had come off the crossbar.

Blooming enjoyed the better of the chances before being caught out by a quick throw-in down the right.

A poor clearance allowed Julio Perez to send winless Sport Boys into the break with a 2-1 lead as he tucked away a finish from inside the area.

The hosts would get the goal they deserved in the 64th minute thanks to Almiron, but they were unable to find a winner.

Wilstermann and Real Potosi, who sit third and fourth respectively, remain unbeaten.

The Strongest held Wilstermann to a 1-1 draw and Real Potosi drew 0-0 at Universitario Cobija.

Gil Parada’s brace led San Jose to a resounding 4-1 win over Petrolero Yacuiba and Nacional Potosi eased past Club Universitario 3-0.
