Uruguay vs Bolivia: Darwin Nunez scored his first Copa America goal

The Uruguayans took 11 shots in the opening 20 minutes against Panama, four of which were on target. This is an example of their aggressive playstyle. Marcelo Bielsa has transformed this team into a different being. That victory not only extended their winning run in the group phase of this tournament to three consecutive games, but they are also now unbeaten in four successive Copa America group matches. A victory on Friday and a USA win or draw versus Panama will guarantee their spot in the knockout stage for a third straight Copa America campaign.

There were concerns about the status of Ronald Araujo after the Uruguayan defender was taken off at the half for Jose Gimenez in their opener. But, the Barcelona star said on his Instagram that it was due to dehydration and a drop in blood pressure, adding that he is 100% to start the game against Bolivia.

Goals from Maximiliano Araujo, Darwin Nunez, and Matias Vina were enough to give Uruguay a victory on matchday one, with the latter scoring his first as a player of La Celeste. Uruguay are a high-pressing team which means they leave lots of space in some areas. Bielsa will have to think of something to cover it otherwise some teams can exploit that easily.


Bolivia conceded eight times in their previous three games. In three of their last four Copa America encounters, the Bolivians failed to find the back of the net, and they have not scored in the opening 45 minutes since a 1-0 triumph over Andorra in March.

Guillermo Viscarra will start at the goal for Bolivia. He stood tall for his side against the USA. He was Bolivia’s best player on the pitch. His ball handling and the ability to pull off the toughest saves make him so special. Rodrigo Ramallo made two progressive passes in the first game, which was the second most on the team. The most pressure came from Miguel Terceros, the midfielder who came in as a sub.
