Bolivia VS Uruguay LIVE Football Match Score June 25/6/2021
The Bolivian team is the underdog in Copa America, as they have demonstrated since the beginning of the tournament. In the first round, César Farias Acosta’s men were defeated by Paraguay – 1-3, and then suffered a setback against Chile – 0-1. Such a modest performance by the Greens should not cause any surprise, because their main trump card is the home stadium, where at high altitude all opponents feel disgusted, and the Bolivians take advantage of this factor, and on neutral territory, they are deprived of it. So it turns out that the Bolivian team is at the bottom of the Group A standings.
The Uruguayan team is one of the strongest teams on the South American continent, but the year 2021 is extremely unsuccessful for them, especially in terms of attacking during matches. Back in the qualification for the 2022 World Cup Uruguayan team, Oscar Tabarez allowed three consecutive matches without scoring when they lost to Brazil – 0-2, and then shared points with Paraguay and Venezuela – 0-0. Failures continued at the start of Copa America when the Uruguayans lost to Argentina, 0-1. The Celeste was the first to concede in the game against Chile, but in the 66th minute, Luis Suarez ended the scoring drought, tying the score at 1-1, which allowed the team of Uruguay to climb up to fourth place in the standings of Group A.
Cesar Farias’s men started with a 3-1 defeat to Paraguay, in a result which will be slightly disappointing considering how the game played out.
Despite their opponents dominating for the majority of the encounter, Bolivia took an early lead through an Erwin Saavedra penalty, and they held on until past the hour mark despite a red card shown on the stroke of half time to forward Jaume Cuellar.
Eventually, the 10 men were no longer able to withstand the pressure, as Alejandro Romero equalised in the 62nd minute and Angel Romero immediately put Paraguay in the lead before netting his second of the game shortly after, leaving Bolivia with a feeling of having dropped points from a winning position.
La Verde were then defeated by Chile, as they were unable to come back from Ben Brereton’s early opener, with the game finishing 1-0.
With two games left to play, Farias’s side now have the task of escaping the foot of the group, with four sides out of five making the quarter-finals, although they face two tough tests as they take on Uruguay and Argentina, meaning they will have to defy the odds if they are to take one of the qualification spots.
That said, Uruguay’s form at the beginning of the tournament should not fill Bolivia with fear, considering La Celeste have just one point from their opening two matches.
