Colombia have endured a torrid qualifying campaign that has yielded just three victories from 16 matches.
Reinaldo Rueda’s side are also without a win in seven of those; losing three of the most recent four.
Although, La Tricolor will be encouraged by the fact that it has been nearly 30 years since they were last beaten by Bolivia.
La Verde must win both their remaining qualifiers to keep alive any hopes of reaching Qatar.
That would include beating Brazil in their final outing; something no other side has managed during the CONMEBOL campaign.
Confidence will not exactly be brimming within Cesar Farias’ side, who have lost three of their last five matches.
They must make do without Marcelo Moreno with Bolivia’s all-time leading scorer absent from the squad.

Colombia vs Bolivia: Match Stats
Despite boasting several decent attacking options, Colombia have struggled in front of goal in recent times.
In fact, Los Cafeteros have failed to find the net in seven of their last eight matches.
That will encourage Bolivia, who are aiming to end an 11-match winless run against their opponents.
Indeed, you must go back to a 4-0 victory in September 2003 for their most recent triumph.
