Copa America / Brazil vs Venezuela – The host of the competition has justified a prediction that is one of most serious favourites to win the title in the first round. Brazil easily defeated Bolivia, while Venezuela drew with Peru. It can be said that both teams are satisfied with the results, while now the Brazilians want to win for the second time and verify a place for themselves in the knockout phase. Venezuela dreams about a draw, although they regularly lose to the Brazilians; they lost the last head-to-head by 2-0.
Game Brazil vs. Venezuela begins 19.06.2019 at 02:30 CET
The Brazilians started the Copa America, where they are hosts, with the expected victory. They faced Bolivia and were regarded as absolute favourites to win but they broke resistance of their opponents no sooner than in the second half. There were nervousness a bit but that was also expected since it was the first appearance in front of domestic audiences. Coutinho scored two goals at the beginning of second half, one of which from penalty and after that everything was much easier. Everton scored the third goal only a few minutes after he came off the bench. Manager Tito had decided to leave G. Jesus and Willian on the bench, as well as Arthur, but now he may refresh the team.
Probable lineups Brazil: Alisson – D. Alves, T. Silva, Marquinhos, F. Luis – Casemiro, Fernandinho – Richarlison, Coutinho, Neres – G. Jesus
Venezuela won one point in the first match and it was a solid achievement. They faced Peru and the most important was not to lose because Peru is the rival with which they will probably fight for the second place. The Venezuelans are outsiders in match with Brazil; they have nothing to lose and could achieve a lot if they win won one point. They failed to score against Peru, and they played last 15 minutes with the player less on the pitch. Left back Mago was sent off and they should be happy to not receive a goal. R. Hernandez will replace Mago in the team now.
Probable lineups Venezuela: Farinez – R. Hernandez, Chancellor, Villanueva, Rosales – Moreno, Herrera, Rincon – Savarino, Murillo – Rondon
Betting Pick: Brazil vs. Venezuela
The Brazilians won first points and the pressure on them immediately went down. Venezuela has won one point and they focus their energy on Bolivia which will meet in the last round. The Venezuelans can hardly do anything against Brazil and we forecast new triumph of the hosts.
Pick: Asian handicap -2 Brazil
Odds: 1.85 at bet365 (down to 1.75 can be played)
