Philippe Coutinho, after a low-key club season with Barcelona, exploded to a new life in international colors. In the absence of talisman Neymar Jr, the winger led the attack of the home team and contributed the first two goals. Later, as a formality, a third was added to the tally to complete the 3-0 scoreline.

Peru played a goalless draw with Venezuela to share one point each on the table after the first round of the group stages. The latter had finished in the bottom of the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers, while Peru had taken a ticket, giving the boot to Chile. Despite that confidence, they failed in recording a win in their opener.

Bolivia lost their last four games in a row and failed to score in all of them. In fact, in their last seven matches, the team could find the back of the net in just one. Going on, they are winless in their last eight fixtures and was so in 16 of their last 17.

They have not been able to record a clean sheet in the last five such battles and lost the last three ties on the trot as well. They also conceded two or more goals in all three of these games.
