Bolivia vs Argentina Prediction
Argentina, despite the changes, are clear favorites to win this game as Bolivia have not shown enough enthusiasm and quality going forward. If needed, Lionel Scaloni could look at his bench that possesses some serious talents, both young and experienced. Goalscorer from the match against Paraguay, Papu Gomez starts alongside, Angel Correa and Lionel Messi on top for The Albiceleste’s last group game.
Bolivia could also try out some new players who have not featured yet in this Copa America as the team have now no chance of qualification. For them, it is a matter of restoring some pride, and beating Argentina should see them sign off with the same. But it would not be an easy task against Argentina, who would go for nothing less than a win as their top spot could be in jeopardy if they lose.

Argentina are strong favorites to not only win this match but the Copa America trophy this year. With Lionel Scaloni finding a decent base at Argentina, the squad now oozes confidence and character. However, they need to improve in the final third of the pitch to get the results going their way. It would be hard for César Farías’s men but they have nothing to lose. Having said that Argentina’s desire to finish the group stages at the top should see them victorious in the end.
