🧠 Recommended bets: 

  • Brazil to beat Peru & over 3.5 goals
  • Argentina to beat Bolivia & under 3.5 goals
  • Over 2.5 goals in Colombia vs Chile

Colombia vs Chile

Colombia will have vengeance on their minds after being eliminated by Chile at the quarter-finals of the 2016 and 2019 Copa América editions. Martín Lasarte has made history for Chile, currently posting the lowest win rate (W2, D5, L3) of any Chile national team head coach to have served for at least five games since Juan Carlos Bertone in 1920-22. Each of the last four internationals held in Barranquilla across the last 24 months has produced over 2.5 total goals so we could be in for some entertainment. 

Brazil vs Peru

The five-time world champions Brazil knows that their tickets to Qatar will soon be booked, with the Seleção still on course to record a first perfect qualifying phase since the campaign for Spain 1982. Brazil is favoured to extend their run of five WCQ victories to nil, which began following a come from behind in the reverse fixture. Even without a clean sheet, Brazil should be confident given that they've netted 3+ goals in four of the last five H2Hs with Peru. An 85.71% majority (12) of Peru’s last 14 games have seen at least one goal before halftime, so the smart money is on an open encounter here.

Argentina vs Bolivia

La Albiceleste has returned home minus Emi Buendía and Emiliano Martínez, and are now looking to extend their unbeaten start to their World Cup Qualification campaign (W4, D3), as well as an overall winning streak of seven. Bolivia has lost five of their last six games in all competitions and is only two points clear of rock bottom in the CONMEBOL WCQ standings, but they have shown fighting spirit recently, avoiding defeat in four of their last five WCQs and salvaging three draws from losing positions. Eleven of Argentina’s last 12 WCQ home matches have produced under 2.5 goals, with six witnessing exactly two.
