Bolivia and Peru will look to boost their chances of qualifying for next year’s World Cup when they meet on Sunday at 9pm (UK time).
The two nations lock metaphorical horns at the Estadio Hernando Siles with the current landscape not looking particularly favourable in either corner. Bolivia lie ninth in the CONMEBOL standings and eight points adrift of fifth (the final qualification place), while Peru are seventh, but only three points outside the top five.

Bolivia vs Peru build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Bolivia have seriously struggled in these Qualifiers, winning just the single game across 10 matches and they currently have the worst defensive record in South America, conceding a whopping 25 goals, which equates to 2.5 per game, so coach Cesar Farias will need to beef up the back if they are to stand a chance here against the 2019 Copa America runners-up.
Peru meanwhile could seriously enhance their chances of climbing up the table if they avoid a slip-up here. This has the potential to be a banana skin fixture, but Ricardo Gareca has overseen two wins across his last two matches so will be feeling confident of pulling off another result here.
- Bolivia (vs Ecuador): Lampe; Sagredo, Jusino, Haquin, Quinteros, Sagredo; Vaca, Justiniano, Cespedes; Vaca, Moreno.
- Peru (vs Chile): Gallese; Advincula, Ramos, Callens, Trauco; Aquino, Yotun, Cueva, Pena, Flores; Guerrero.
Centurion Paolo Guerrero is currently sidelined through injury and failed to make the squad this month. The 37-year-old is joined on the treatment tables with 68-capped Renato Tapia, 57-capped Edison Flores and half-centurion Raul Ruidiaz.

Player to watch: Jefferson Farfan (Peru)
At 36, Jefferson Farfan is very much in the dotage years of his career, but the Peruvian captain remains an attacking catalyst for his nation, bringing bundles of energy to the touchline line and a keen eye for the back of the net. Now back at Alianza Lima, whom he started out his career with at the start of the century, the former PSV and Schalke attacker is just two caps shy of bringing up 100 for Peru (scoring 27 international goals in that time) and he will be desperate to make next year’s quadrennial games knowing it could be his final World Cup. The four-time Eredivisie winner hasn’t found the back of the net since 2019 for La Blanquirroja so the fact he comes up against the continent’s most porous backline these Qualifiers bodes well for the Peruvian legend to end his recent and uncharacteristic barren run at international level.
