Watch Chile vs. Bolivia live stream free at the 2015 Copa America, Group A action from Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos in Santiago.
After a strong opener against Ecuador, Chile struggled in their match with Mexico, falling behind and only earning a 3-3 draw and one-point for their effort. As the host, Chile is one of the favorites to take the 2015 Copa America title and, against a weaker team like Bolivia, they have a good chance to at least advance to the next round.
Having lost their chance to clinch Group A against Mexico, Chile must face a motivated Bolivia, a team with which they are tied for first place with four points. Many expected Mexico to be tied with Chile at this point, but La Tri only has two-points to show for their appearance at the Copa America thus far.
Fans who watch the Chile vs. Bolivia live stream will see how much difficulty the host has to put up with when they face-off against Bolivia. However, we should not dismiss Bolivia, which has thus far defeated Ecuador (3-2) — their first win in the tournament since 1997 — and drawn 0-0 with Mexico.
Not many assigned any chances for Bolivia to advance to the next round, but here they are, tied for first and with enough momentum to do just that. Bolivia defender Edward Zenteno said during a press conference his teammates want to finish on top of group A.
“We want to finish first in the group, we know it will be tough. The aim is to do good things on Friday and through as the best in the group.”
“We are happy, but we will not lower our guard. We are mentally prepared to have a good performance in every game – the confidence is there.”
Watch Chile vs. Bolivia streaming live for free to see if superstar Arturo Vidal will come back in full form after being arrested for crashing his Ferrari while driving drunk earlier this week. However, unlike Neymar from Brazil, who has been suspended for at least one game, Vidal will not suffer any punishment for his behavior off the pitch.
Chile’s coach Jorge Sampaoli is confident his men will correct the mistakes that led to the draw with Mexico.
“The truth is they were isolated instances, the kind we have to fix. It wasn’t meant to be, and time will give us an opportunity to correct the errors.”
