On Saturday evening, football fans will witness a friendly clash between Colombia and Bolivia at the Pratt & Whitney Stadium in Connecticut. Both teams are gearing up for the Copa America, which begins on June 20.

Colombia comes into this match with high confidence, following a striking 5-1 victory over the United States, while Bolivia aims to bounce back after a 3-1 defeat to Ecuador.

Recent Form

Colombia

Colombia is on a remarkable winning streak, having secured seven consecutive victories in all competitions.

Their recent 5-1 triumph over the United States highlights their formidable form.

Nestor Lorenzo's squad has not tasted defeat in over two years, positioning them as strong contenders for the upcoming Copa America.

Bolivia

Bolivia, on the other hand, has struggled recently, winning just one of their last 16 matches against Colombia.

Their recent form includes four losses in their last five games. However, they managed a 1-0 victory over Andorra in March, which could provide a slight morale boost.

Team News

Colombia

In their last match, second-half substitutes Jorge Carrascal, Luis Sinisterra, and Richard Rios contributed significantly by scoring three goals.

Despite their impactful performances, they are expected to start on the bench again.

Key players like Luis Diaz, Jhon Arias, and James Rodriguez will likely lead the attack, with Rafael Santos Borre spearheading the offensive line and Jefferson Lerma in central midfield.

Bolivia

Bolivia's head coach, Antonio Carlos Zago, might retain the same lineup that started against Ecuador.

Forward Carmelo Algaranaz, who has scored twice for his national team, is expected to feature prominently, alongside midfielder Pablo Vaca.

Roberto Fernandez and Miguel Terceros, the latter having scored his first international goal recently, are also anticipated to play significant roles.

Key Players to Watch

Colombia

Luis Diaz: A dynamic winger known for his pace and dribbling skills.

James Rodriguez: The experienced playmaker capable of creating scoring opportunities.

Rafael Santos Borre: A reliable forward leading the attack.

Bolivia

Carmelo Algaranaz: A key forward for Bolivia with a knack for finding the net.

Pablo Vaca: His Midfield presence is essential for controlling the game.

Prediction

Given their current form and superior squad depth, Colombia is favoured to win this encounter.

Bolivia's recent struggles, combined with Colombia's unbeaten streak and historical dominance, make it challenging to predict a positive result for Bolivia.

Our Prediction: Colombia 2-0 Bolivia
