Two teams who got off to disappointing starts in the 2019 Copa American will battle in a must-win game for both sides on Tuesday. Peru will attempt to improve after a lackluster 0-0 draw with Venezuela, as ESPN reported, in hopes of grabbing second-place in Group A behind a Brazil team that appears ready to run away with the top spot in the group. The Brazilian’s victim in the opening match was Bolivia, who took a 3-0 drubbing and now find themselves not only with no points at the bottom of the group, but with a seemingly insurmountable negative goal difference as well — meaning that without a clear win and the full three points over Peru, Bolivia will find its 2019 Copa America ending the same way its 2016 edition did — at the group stage, in the match that will live stream from Rio.

Bolivia Coach Eduardo Villegas was left to explain why his team appeared to put up little if any offensive effort in the 3-0 whitewash against Brazil, firing back at social media critics who called for his job, according to Fox Sports.
“I hope the people who write on social networks get good information from people who understand football, from specialists, and that they explain you cannot have results so soon when it is a different selection,” Villegas said on Monday.
Though Villegas noted that Peru is “not Brazil,” the fact remains that, according to SportingPedia, Peru has won three matches in a row over Bolivia, and have not lost in eight games against their South American rivals.
