Peru vs. Bolivia: the unease of Lapadula and the Peruvian players after losing in La Paz | VIDEO

The Peruvian team left the Hernando Siles stadium without adding a ticket and left a great opportunity to get closer to qualifying positions in the Qualifiers. Bolivia won 1-0 outnumbered, further complicating the possible qualification of the bicolor to Qatar 2022. After the fall, the national players were crestfallen.

Ramiro Vaca appeared at 82 minutes, when the tie in the 3,640 meters of altitude of La Paz seemed imminent, to sentence a triumph that renews hopes for the ‘Verde’ and falls like a blow to the aspirations of the ‘Blanquirroja’. That was seen after the final whistle of the referee, with the first reactions of Gianluca Lapadula and the other members of the national cadre.

Until then, the Bolivian and Peruvian teams were heading towards a goalless draw that ruined their budgets to approach, at least, fifth place for the last quota for Qatar 2022.

Things were not looking good for the locals, who lost Henry Vaca by expulsion in the 75th minute, but they managed to win the scoreboard surprisingly.

Bolivia, led by César Farías, today reached 9 points out of 33 possible that allow it to provisionally jump from the penultimate or ninth place, to the penultimate and eighth. The order will be defined after Chile and Paraguay conclude their match tonight.

Peru, under the command of Ricardo Gareca, was parked in the seventh seat with 11 units.
