Chile will face Bolivia on Friday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., in the teams’ second Group D game. Both lost their opening games 2-1 and need a victory to return to contention for a place in the quarterfinal.
Chile won Copa America 2015 last summer on home soil. The experienced side must recover its cohesion and commitment in order to successfully defend its title. A matchup against Bolivia could be the perfect opportunity to do so.
Bolivia lost to Chile 5-0 at Copa America 2015, and its history against the South American foe — six wins, eight draws and 27 losses — is even worse than that scoreline. Bolivia must earn its first win over Chile since 2000 in order to avoid yet another early Copa America exit.
Chile-Bolivia is the first of three Copa America 2016 games Gillette Stadium will host. Brazil plays Peru on Sunday, and a quarterfinal game will take place next Saturday, with teams still to be determined.
Start Time: Friday, June 10, at 7 p.m. ET
