Brazil v Venezuela Betting Tips & Predictions
Brazil made a winning start to their 2019 Copa America campaign and there’s no reason to suggest this won’t continue when they square off against Venezuela on Tuesday night.
Tite’s team were straightforward winners against Bolivia in the curtain-raiser of the tournament, with two goals from Philippe Coutinho setting the hosts on their way before Everton added the icing on the cake.
There is genuine quality in every department for the Brazilian team, with Alisson Becker arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and fresh from winning the Champions League with Liverpool, while he has another watertight defence in front of him at international level.
Casemiro and Fernandinho also offer plenty of steel in the team’s midfield, with Richarlison and either Everton or David Neres flanking Roberto Firmino, while Coutinho is the playmaker in behind.
It’s a system which is well known to this talented squad of players and the Venezuelans will be looking to try a policy of containment after drawing their opening match against Peru.
It might turn out to be a valuable point and it’s worth noting that two of the third-placed teams also go through to the knockout stage, with the visitors knowing that they could get the better of Bolivia in their final encounter and wind up with at least four points.
They will be missing the suspended Luis Del Pino who was sent off in his team’s opener, although Venezuela were the better team during the second half against Peru and the only question is how many men they will commit forward in this clash.
Punters might want to look at a Brazil win by a 1-0 or 2-0 scoreline although we’re happy to go for a victory to nil at backable odds and the hosts to become the first team through to the last eight.
