Brazil vs Bolivia
Brazil will play Bolivia on Thursday in World Cup 2018 qualifiers
Brazil will make a trip to Bolivia for a world cup qualifying match on Thursday. Brazil have already qualified for the world cup whereas Bolivia have been eliminated.

Kick-off : 4 PM (Local)

Venue : Estadio Hernando Siles

Brazil will be eager to pick up a first qualifying win in Bolivia since 1985. Brazil have done well under Tite so far.

Bolivia can’t qualify for the world cup but can still produce shocks, as they did by beating Argentina 2-0 at home.

Their players are determined to defeat Brazil to end this qualifying campaign on a high. It will make their people happy.

In fact Bolivia are a very strong team at home and it goes without saying that matches in South America are tough.

So it should be a good game on Thursday as both teams will give their all.

Team news and possible line-ups

Alejandro Chumacero will not be available for the Brazil game as he is suspended. While Enrique Flores and Pablo Escobar didn’t get a recall, so won’t be featuring.

Marcelo Moreno will be their key man on Thursday.

As for Brazil, Tite has called up the likes of Danilo, Diego, Fred and Diego Tardelli. They are probably not going to risk their first team regulars at such high altitude, so we might see a few youngsters in this game.

Willian could be their key man in this game as he is in fine form at present.

Bolivia XI : Lampe, Zenteno, Raldes, Valverde, Diego Bejarano, Campos, Castro, Sagredo, Fierro, Arce, Moreno.

Brazil XI : Alisson, Danilo, Jemerson, Jorge, Alex Sandro, Diego, Augusto, Fred, Arthur, Willian, Tardelli.


Seeing that Bolivia are tough to beat at home, we might see a tightly contested game. But since Brazil are in a good form of late, they should win this game 2-0.
