Brazil vs Venezuela Preview

Brazil vs Venezuela

Competition – Copa America

Stadium – Arena Fonte Nova

Date: 18th June 2019

Kick-off time – 01:30 GMT (19th June)

Brazil will be looking to win the Copa America this year on home soil after failing to go beyond the semifinal in the last two World Cups.

They are expected to miss Neymar who is out of the competition through injury however they didn’t really show that in their last game against Bolivia.

Their 3-0 win in that game was thanks in part to a brace of goals from Philippe Coutinho and local fans expect them to follow that win up with a better performance in this game.

Venezuela come into this competition as one of the least successful teams in the continent.  They have never qualified for the World Cup and their best performance in this competition has been reaching the semifinals.

They have looked impressive recently after beating Argentina and the USA in warm up games and they could spring a surprise in this game.

Venezuela made a strong start to this competition by earning a draw against Peru in their opening game.  They will look to build on that here even though it should be tougher given Brazil’s determination and home support.

Bookmakers have priced Brazil up as strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Venezuela are priced as considerable underdogs.

Goal markets expect a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.
This game gets underway at 01:30 BST.
