Bolivia will leave the over 3,000 meters above sea level to celebrate the second day of spring in balmy Barranquilla where it will be around 86 degrees come kickoff (30C).  For the home side this match is looked as three points against a team that last won away from La Paz was a devastating 7-1 win against Venezuela back in 1993 en route to their first and only appearance in the World Cup.   

The same coach that led them to that historic moment is back in Spaniard Xabier Askargorta and he's promised to implement a very tough defensive scheme that José Pekerman's men will have to counter if they expect to get the three points and end up as the second best team in the region after nine matches.
