Chile vs Bolivia U-19 Match Prediction –
Chile and Bolivia are both average teams that do not have a very great record in their recent games. Chile has entered the pre-qualifiers after elimination from the Americup qualifiers, whereas Bolivia has entered after winning the South American pre-qualifiers. The game is hence expected to be a low scoring yet close game between the 2 teams. However, given the previous record of Chile against Bolivia, it would be most probable that Chile maintains its unbeaten streak against its opponent and win the first group stage match.
