Mexico vs Bolivia Preview

  • Tournament – International Friendlies
  • Date – Saturday, June 1
  • Kick-off Time – 02:00 am GMT
  • Venue – Soldier Field, USA

Mexico will kick off its preparation for the Copa America in the United States with an international friendly against Bolivia at Soldier Field. Mexico suffered a loss to the USA in the CONCACAF Nations League final and will be keen to return to winning ways.

Mexico will aim for a positive outcome on Saturday after a patchy run of results in recent times. They will play two more international friendlies against Uruguay and Brazil on June 6 and 9, respectively, before they start their Copa America 2024 campaign against Jamaica on June 23.

Bolivia, meanwhile, are enduring a disastrous run of form as they managed only one win in their last eight games, underlining their struggles under manager Antonio Carlos Zago. They are ranked 85th in the FIFA rankings, an astounding 71 places behind Mexico.

Mexico vs Bolivia Prediction

While both sides have maintained their dominance on the international stage, Mexico will have a better chance in this friendly against a struggling Bolivia side. They claimed three victories in their final seven matches in 2023. Their form in non-competitive fixtures does not bode well as the El Tricolor claimed only two victories in their last eight.

Bolivia, meanwhile, won’t pose a big threat to Jaime Lozano’s men this weekend. The side that is gearing up for its 21st consecutive participation in the tournament this summer has suffered seven losses in the last eight games.

Predicted Score: Mexico 2-0 Bolivia
