Predictions: Bolivia x Peru
Trivela’s editorial team’s guesses
Result: Draw or Peru – 1,735
In a clash between two teams that are below expectations and have had similar campaigns so far, we attribute slight favoritism to the Peru team. The Peruvian team has players with the individual capacity to make a difference, such as striker Paolo Guerrero, who was South American champion with LDU. Furthermore, we see a very attractive odds for a double result, whether a draw or a victory for the visitors.
Bet on Pinnacle »
Under 2.25 total goals – 1.77
The second guess is justified by the poor performance of the two attacks so far in the South American Qualifiers for the World Cup. On the one hand, the home team only scored two goals in five games, while the Peruvian team has not even managed to find the net in five matches played. This way, automatically, our prediction in the goal market is considerably low, where we expect a maximum of two balls in the net at Hernando Siles.
Bet on Stake »
No goals in the first 33 minutes – 1.88
Still considering the pre-game scenario, where the expectation of goals is severely limited, we can infer another prediction in the goals market, where the score will be zero in the first 33 minutes of the game. Even though the Bolivian team can try to exploit La Paz’s altitude factor, the team must come up against its own limitations, just like the Peruvians. Therefore, we expect in this last guess a zero score in this first period of the game.

The latest news from Bolivia
Despite the increase in the number of places granted to Conmebol for the World Cup, the Bolivian team remains the main candidate not to qualify for the tournament, something that has not happened since 1994, when they made their debut against the then current champion Germany. . In the last match, they lost to Paraguay at Defensores del Chaco 1-0, with a goal from Sanabria.
With four defeats in four games so far, the Bolivians’ campaign has been disappointing, resulting in the dismissal of coach Gustavo Costas. About a week later, the country’s federation announced Brazilian coach Antônio Carlos Zago, recently national champion with Bolívar, to lead the team, to at least dream of a place in the 2026 World Cup, even if only in the playoffs.
Another relevant highlight for the next two matches of the Bolivian team is the farewell of one of its greatest exponents, striker Marcelo Moreno. Having spent time in Brazilian football, the 36-year-old veteran center forward, currently at Independiente Del Valle, will play his last two matches wearing the La Verde shirt.
The latest news from Peru
Peru has had better moments in its recent history, reaching the Copa América final and semi-final against Brazil. However, their last campaign in the World Cup qualifiers was very poor, leaving them out of the Qatar Cup in 2022.
This negative phase seems to be extending, and in the current edition of the Qualifiers, Peru won just one point in the 0-0 draw against the Paraguayan team in the debut. In the last match, the Peruvian team had a regular performance, but was insufficient against an Argentina that had a night of Lionel Messi’s recital, resulting in a 2-0 defeat, with two goals from the best player in the world.
Back after missing the last few dates due to injury, Cagliari center forward Gianluca Lapadula is the main returnee. Another important return is that of striker Edinson Flores, Universitario’s highlight in their campaign to win the Peruvian Championship last weekend.
