United States vs Bolivia Preview & Picks

The United States are tipped to cover as they beat an over-matched Bolivia team.

The hosts' most recent wins have been by at least a couple of goals, so this should be a comfortable victory for them.

  • USA won by more than 1 goal in their last 9 wins
  • USA won by more than 2 goals in their last 2 games against Bolivia
  • Bolivia lost their last 12 games (Copa America)
  • Bolivia lost by more than 1 goal in 7 of their last 8 defeats (Copa America)

Head To Head

  • USA lead the all-time series 3-0
  • USA won 4-0 when the two teams last met in 2018

United States Form

The USA concluded their Copa America preparations with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Brazil in Florida 10 days ago.

Gregg Berhalter's side bounced back from a painful 5-1 defeat against Colombia three days earlier, with Christian Pulisic's goal cancelling out Rodrygo's opener in Miami.

The Stars and Stripes come into this competition in high spirits after claiming CONCACAF Nations League glory with a 2-0 win against Mexico in March. 

Making only their third appearance at the Copa America, the USA reached the semi-final stage when they last hosted the event in 2016. 

Bolivia Form

Bolivia face the daunting prospect of facing the host nation after a 3-0 friendly defeat against Colombia last week. 

La Verde lost 11 and won only two of 14 international fixtures played over the past year.

Ranked 84th in the world, some 73 places below the US, Bolivia lost nine of their last ten competitive matches since January 2022. 

Antônio Zago's side leaked 28 goals while scoring just five in those nine defeats. 

The Verde have a truly miserable record at the Copa America. having lost 21 and won only one of 30 games played since losing the final on home soil back in 1997.  

Verdict

USA should ease to victory in front of a passionate home support at the AT&T Stadium.

I am backing the hosts to win by two clear goals against an out-of-form Bolivian side.
