Bolivia vs Brazil – 2018 World Cup Qualification:Brazil will travel to an always difficult ground in La Paz to face Bolivia on this Qualification stage for the 2018 World Cup.
The Brazilians are coming off a win over Ecuador at home and a draw in Colombia against the local team.
Ever since Tite took over the managerial job, the results and respect for the Brazilian National team have started to show up once again.
His debut was against Ecuador in Quito, where he got the win.
After 13 matches with him as coach, they have only one loss, against Argentina on a friendly. Besides that, they have 11 wins and only 1 draw which makes up for a very impressive record.
Brazil have naturally the lead of this qualification group with 37 points so far. At the moment, their advantage to the 2nd place is 10 points, which means that, besides being qualified, they have already secured the 1st place as well.
Tite’s called-up list had some surprises with players like Diego Tardelli, Diego, Fred and Arthur being summoned. Therefore, I believe we might have some novelties on the line-up.

Bolivia vs Brazil – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Bolivia has once again failed to return to the World Cup. But on this final stretch, they have been able to get some interesting result, like their win over Chile in La Paz recently.
On the last 5 matches, the team was able to get 3 out of their 4 total wins they got on this qualification stage. They sit in second-to-last place with 13 points.
I don’t need to say much to let you know that the Brazilian team is infinitely superior to the Bolivians. But historically, we can see that the Bolivian altitude usually makes up for the difference.
Bolivia has already been able to cause some upsets against technically stronger teams.
It is not easy for players who are used to playing in Europe to travel and play in La Paz.
Therefore, I expect Bolivia to score at least one goal. From the Brazilian side I also expect goals. With Neymar, Jesus and the rest of their quality players, that is the natural thing to happen.
I believe we will have both teams scoring here.
