Colombia and Bolivia will face each other in a friendly international match this weekend. The game between Néstor Lorenzo’s side and Antônio Carlos Zago’s team will be held at the Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in Connecticut and is scheduled to kick off at 10 pm UK time on Saturday.

Colombia

Colombia are a major force in South American football and tend to qualify for major international competitions on a regular basis and do well in them as well. They will feature in the 2024 Copa America and are expected to go far in the tournament.

Néstor Lorenzo’s side have been in brilliant form for months now. Colombia have not lost a single match for over two years and will head into the friendly game against Bolivia on the back of a 5-1 victory over the USA. 

Colombia have won their last seven matches in all competitions and will be determined to extend that run when they take on Bolivia. They will take on Paraguay in their opening Copa America game before facing Costa Rica and Brazil in their final two group stage matches.

Team News:

Colombia are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Bolivia. Vargas will be the goalkeeper for La Tricolor and will have Munoz, D Sanchez, Lucumi and Mojica in front of him in defence. Uribe and Lerma will be the two holding midfielders. Arias, J Rodriguez and Diaz will be deployed in attacking midfield. Borre will lead the line for Colombia.

Bolivia

Bolivia are a modest team who are just content to qualify for major international competitions. They do not have world-class players and tend not to qualify for the World Cup finals.

Antonio Carlos Zago’s side are not having the best of times at the moment. Bolivia have won just one of their last 16 matches against Colombia and are unlikely to pose too much of a threat to their Soth American rivals this weekend.

Bolivia, who won the Copa America back in 1963 and reached the final in 1997, will take on USA in their opening game at the 2024 Copa America before facing Uruguay and Panama in the group stage. They have been eliminated at the group stage in the past three editions of the tournament.

Team News:

Bolivia are likely to line up in a 4-5-1 formation. Viscarra will be in goal for La Verde and will have Medina, Jusino, Sagredo and Suarez ahead of him in defence. Cuellar, Villamil, Cespedes, Vaca and Fernandez will be deployed in midfield. Algaranaz will lead the line for Bolivia.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Colombia have lost 4 of their last 6 friendly international matches.
  • Bolivia have won 1 of their last 6 friendly international matches.
  • Colombia have won their 6 matches in all competitions.
  • Bolivia have lost 4 of their last 6 games in all competitions.
  • Bolivia have won 2 of their last 6 games in all competitions.

Conclusion

Colombia are in good form at the moment and have a better team than Bolivia. It is hard to see anything but a comfortable victory for Néstor Lorenzo’s side.

Prediction: Colombia to win 2-0
