Bolivia vs Uruguay build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Bolivia drew the short straw in the Copa America group draw, placed alongside Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay. But they may have hoped to be in a better position after two games, facing Paraguay and Chile – the “easier” matches on paper. However, Bolivia are still chasing their first point at this year’s Copa America, losing 3-1 to Paraguay in their opening game before following it up with a 1-0 defeat to Chile. They now need to realistically get three points from their final two matches against Uruguay and Argentina to remain in the competition.
One point and one place above bottom-of-the-group Bolivia are Uruguay who are also chasing their first win after a poor start to the tournament. Uruguay, who are the most-successful side in Copa America history, were beaten 1-0 by Argentina in their opening game and only managed a draw against Chile thanks to an own goal from Arturo Vidal. However, Uruguay can confirm their spot in the quarter-finals with a win over Bolivia as it would put them four points clear of their opponents with a game left to play.
- Bolivia (vs Chile): Lampe; Bejarano*, Quinteros, Jusino, Fernandez; Arce, Justiniano, Vaca, Saavedra; Chura, Alvarez.
- Uruguay (vs Chile): Muslera; Gonzalez, Godin, Gimenez, Vina; Valverde, Vecino, De La Cruz; de Arrascaeta; Cavani, Suarez.
Neither side has any fresh injury concerns but Diego Bejarano is suspended for Bolivia after receiving his second yellow card of the tournament last time out.

Player to watch: Luis Suarez (Uruguay)
Uruguay have scored just one goal in their opening two Copa America matches and wasn’t even one of their own players with Vidal giving them a helping hand against Chile. If they are to secure qualification to the next stage, Uruguay will need their own stars to step up, especially Luis Suarez.
Suarez is Uruguay’s all-time top goalscorer with 64 goals but he hasn’t scored in his past four matches for the nation, including the two Copa America matches so far. But the quality is still there for all to see. The 34-year-old came into the tournament off the back of a La Liga-winning campaign with Atletico Madrid in which he scored 21 goals in 32 matches, his best return in a single season for three years.
Suarez hasn’t played Bolivia too many times in his career, four to be exact, but he has been prolific against the nation scoring four times including twice in his last appearance in 2017. Uruguay need that Suarez to turn up this week.
