Bolivia v Venezuela Betting Tips & Predictions
Few anticipated Venezuela getting a positive result against Brazil in Salvador although La Vinotinto were able to contain the Copa America hosts and tournament favourites to secure a goalless draw.
Coach Rafael Dudamel cut a delighted figure after the match, with his team having survived three disallowed goals due to VAR, with the outsiders recording 31% possession although they looked defensively solid.
The Venezuelans can now qualify for the knockout stage of the Copa simply by winning this match in Belo Horizonte, with the team facing a Bolivia side who cannot finish in the top two of Group A.
The Bolivians could still land third spot in the section although three points is unlikely to be enough to go through to the last eight, with La Verde having taken the lead against Peru in their most recent match before eventually losing 3-1.
Eduardo Villegas’ side clearly have defensive frailties after conceding three times against Brazil in their opener and they only managed to register two shots on target compared to ten shots against the Peruvians.
The only danger to backing Venezuela is that they have played out two goalless draws so far, although it should be noted that one of these games was against Brazil and the other saw them dominate the second half against Peru before drawing the game.
Jose Salomon Rondon is the sort of front man that can make a difference and we can’t underestimate the strength of team morale from recording that draw against Brazil, with the Venezuelans now ready to make the step up and claim their spot in the last eight of the Copa America.
