Important midfielder Angel Di Maria suffered an injury against Panama and he is definitely out of contention.

The likes of Marcos Rojo, Javier Mascherano, Nico Gaitan and Augusto Fernandez are all one yellow card away from suspension and they are unlikely to play against Bolivia. Erik Lamela is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up. Leo Messi scored a hat-trick against Panama, but he could be rested against Bolivia.

Argentina vs Bolivia Prediction

Thanks to a thrilling 5-0 win over Panama Argentina booked their place in the Copa America knockout stages, but despite the fact that coach Tata Martino is likely to mix the squad against Bolivia, la Albiceleste are widely expected to extend their winning run at the tournament in USA. La Verde struggle at the back and they are unlikely to make life difficult for the South American giants in Wednesday’s game at CenturyLink Field.
