South American qualifiers: Colombia won, but Bolivia equaled

In the duel that opened the seventh date of the South American Qualifiers, Bolivia rescued a 1-1 draw in the height of La Paz versus Colombia, a result that is of little use to both of them in their intention to continue growing in the table towards Qatar 2022.

Los cafeteros, directed by Reinaldo Rueda, they played a good game in an always difficult venue at more than 3,600 meters above sea level, and They were able to go ahead thanks to a goal from Roger Martínez, in the 69th minute.

However, a shoe from the admitted Fernando Saucedo, 7 minutes from the end of the party, allowed equality for the local, which ended with one less player for the unusual expulsion of Carmelo Argañaraz, who received two yellow cards with just one minute of difference.

Thus, Bolivia reached 6 units, while Colombia has 9 points and fight for a direct qualification position to the World Cup.

After a very stuck first half and with few options, it was the coffee growers who took advantage thanks to a superb individual play by Martinez, that stacked rivals to the right and defined before the drainage of Carlos Lampe, former Boca Juniors goalkeeper.

With the advantage, Colombia took refuge in its field to take care of the result and that’s where Bolivia made use of his usual good mid-distance punch, also taking advantage of the characteristics of the height, with a Saucedo bombshell that left Ospina nailed watching how he dug the ball in the right angle.

Conformity, anyway, surrounded Colombia for the result in an always difficult place in the South American Qualifiers, which allows you to start adding this unprecedented triple date to Qatar 2022.
