Match preview 🏆 

Bolivia coach Eduardo Villegas opted for a conservative approach against Brazil with Marcelo Moreno alone up front for long periods, but they might have to a little more expansive if they're to find a foothold in this group.

Peru had many chances to secure a win in their 0-0 draw with Venezuela and they'll feel as though they dropped two points.  VAR played a role, as did Bolivia's desperate defending, and only to be denied by a frustrating combination of last-ditch blocks, reflex saves and VAR interventions. Ricardo Gareca will be desperate to win here, knowing that Brazil lies in wait in the last group game. 

This isn't likely to be a thriller judging by the opening round of fixtures. Bolivia will sit back and try to nick a goal, meaning Peru will have to be more precise in the final third if they are to secure a much-needed win. In Christian Cueva, they do at least have a player capable of picking locks, and with greater quality elsewhere in the side too, it's no major surprise they're favourites.

We expect them to win this, but not by a large margin. Backing Peru & under 3.5 goals makes sense.

Players to watch 🌟

Gilbert Alvarez and Marcelo Moreno are in competition for a starting berth in their Copa America opener against Brazil. Andre Carrillo and Edison Flores could get starts here if Peru head coach Ricardo Gareca plots any changes in attack.
