That is why match between Venezuela and Peru is very important and both teams won and lost in last two friendlies. The two teams met the last time in 2017 and they drew 2-2.
Venezuela vs Peru begins 15.06.2019 at 21:00 CET
Venezuela has never been a continental champion and they are outsiders now, however, the Venezuelans have their calculation for the Copa America where the objective is to reach the knockout phase. Of course, they didn’t qualify for the World Cup in Russia last year but results and performances in friendlies played in this year do provide reason for optimism. They managed to defeat great Argentine, drew with Ecuador, and for the end they beat the Americans by 3-0. They lost only to Mexico. They scored all three goals against the United States by the half-time, and compared to that match the only change will be R. Hernandez who will play in the defence.
Probable lineups Venezuela: Farinez – R. Hernandez, Chancellor, Villanueva, Rosales – Rincon, Moreno, Herrera – Savarino, Rondon, Murillo
Peru also wants to reach at least the group stage in this competition and they had appeared at the last year's World Cup, which was a great experience for them and Peru didn’t embarrass itself. They even earned plenty of sympathy for their play style, but their results were quite weak in friendlies played after that. They have lost number of matches and they have justification for some defeats due to strength of their opponents. They have the lost test with Colombia by 3-0 at home. Manager Gareca would probably make a number of changes after such a defeat but he doesn’t have too many good players at his disposal and instead Flores will be the only new name in the team.
Probable lineups Peru: Gallese – Advincula, Araujo, Abram, Trauco – Yotun, Tapia – Carrillo, Cueva, Flores – Guerrero
Venezuela vs Peru PICK
We expect a great battle between two teams of similar quality and open tactic by both of them. Victory practically means reaching the knockout phase and Venezuela and Peru will both play to win, meaning we should see goals on both sides of the pitch.
