Bolivia will be looking to get their first points on the board come Thursday night. Cesar Farias’ men have lost both of their opening two games of the competition. Despite taking the lead against Paraguay, Bolivia conceded the points and ended up on the end of a 3-1 defeat. And in their last outing against Chile, they were unable to fight back from conceding early on in the game.
Uruguay were able to get their first point on the board on Monday when they faced Chile. Luis Suarez provided Oscar Tabarez’s side with the equalising goal in the second half after Chile went into the break with a narrow advantage. Defeat in their opening game against Argentina will not worry them given the stunning start to Copa America from Lionel Scaloni’s men.
With top of the group Argentina awaiting Bolivia in their final game of the competition, you would imagine Thursday’s game against Uruguay is their best opportunity to get some points on the board. Paraguay awaits Uruguay in their final game of the competition, however, they will be looking no further than Thursday’s game against the side rock bottom and without a goal in this summer’s competition.

Bolivia vs Uruguay: Match Stats
Luis Suarez came into this summer’s competition on the back of a title-winning season with Atletico Madrid which saw the 34-year-old find the back of the net 21 times in La Liga. Suarez got his name on the scoresheet for his country in their previous outing as his 66th-minute goal provided Uruguay with an equaliser to secure a point against Chile.
Bolivia have conceded four goals in their opening two games and we expect that trend to continue. The side bottom of Group A will be coming up against the goalscoring powerhouses in Luis Suarez and Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani. Uruguay are yet to record a win, but they will certainly look to put three points and few goals on the table on Thursday night.
