Tip Brazil - Venezuela
World football is facing extraordinary times with the global pandemic. As we head to the start of the Copa America in Brazil, there has been a lot of opposition and condemnation for Brazil accepting to host the tournament. The hosting rights were handed to Brazil less than two weeks ago, much to Brazilian leaders’ chagrin, but the tournament will kick off as scheduled, with hosts Brazil starting it off against Venezuela. Brazil go to this Group B clash on a very strong position – unbeaten in their last seven matches, with seven straight wins. They have six clean sheets in that run, with the only time they conceded being in the 4-2 win over Peru back in October. In these seven matches they have scored two or more in each, and more recently, they’ve done well in the World Cup qualifiers, beating Ecuador and Paraguay 2-0 in each. Three straight wins at home, with eight goals in the process and all key players available leaves Brazil as a very strong side in this competition.
Venezuela met Brazil in November, in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and on that occasion, they lost 1-0 courtesy of Roberto Firmino’s goal. They go here having lost four of their last five meetings with Brazil and they’ve failed to score in the last three. It hasn’t also been well in their recent matches; a 3-1 loss to Bolivia and a 0-0 draw with Uruguay in the World Cup qualifiers mean Venezuela now have one win only in their last six matches. They have lost four of the six and have just three clean sheets in the last 12 matches. Their 1-0 loss to Brazil in the World Cup qualifiers is one of the three straight away losses Venezuela have had to endure and they have failed to score in three of the last five. Going to this game, among the big names they have to face is Neymar, who has scored five goals in Brazil’s last five games, and it isn’t very promising for Venezuela.
