Altitude key for Bolivians

Our South American expert has highlighted Tuesday’s Copa Libertadores clash between Bolivar and Internacional as one that has been overpriced by the bookmakers, with odds likely to shorten closer to kick-off. As with many games taking place in Bolivia, high altitude is to play a role according to our expert, and they have tipped Bolivar to do the business over their Brazilian counterparts.

💎 Gem Bet: Bolivar to beat Internacional (Copa Libertadores)
Bolivar v Internacional
The traders at bet365 seem to have underestimated Bolivar’s potential, and as kick-off approaches, these odds will likely shrink further. A Bolivar victory is currently priced at 1.85, but there’s also another enticing prospect: a goal before the 31-minute mark, with odds of 1.83.
Bolivar hold the distinct advantage here of playing in La Paz, a city which is situated a staggering 3,600 meters above sea level. This altitude factor drastically reduces oxygen levels by up to 50% compared to locations at sea level, causing big issues for visiting Brazilian teams. This advantage was clear when Bolivar triumphed over Athletico PR with a commanding 3-1 scoreline in the round of 16. With 66% possession, 23 shots, and 15 corners, Bolivar comprehensively demonstrated their power at home. A similar home victory over Palmeiras in the group stage further solidified their recent home dominance against Brazilian opposition. Continuing this trend, Club Always Ready (another Bolivian team based in La Paz) secured a 2-0 win against Corinthians during the 2022 edition of the Copa Libertadores.
It’s not just Brazilian sides that struggle here, with Bolivar having clinched victory in all four of their home matches in this year’s Libertadores. The trend of early goals is one to watch out for, with four out of five matches at Estadio Hernando Siles witnessing a goal before the 30th minute. Bolivar set up with a high-press under manager Benat San Jose, which makes it even more uncomfortable for thier energy-sapped opposition.
Ronnie Fernandez is the standout player for Bolivar with four Libertadores goals to his name so far. Both with his feet and in the air, the Chilean forward is a perfect example of a defender’s nightmare to play against.
Bolivar must win the first leg. Back on a level playing field in Brazil, Internacional should pull them apart, which is why a two or three goal lead is necessary. Bolivar will know that, and in front of a 45,000 sell out crowd, they’ll look to be quick out of the blocks.
