Brazil V Venezuela
Sunday 21st June. 10:30PM. Streamed Live On Bet365
Sunday night brings the climax to this year’s Copa America group phase and we could potentially see a huge upset if Dunga’s Brazil don’t put in a good performance against Group C rivals Venezuela.
The South American giants will be fancied to progress, especially with the comfort of potentially qualifying as one of the best third-placed teams. However, events in the previous game against Colombia have really thrown a spanner into the works and quite literally anything could happen in Santiago.
It’s set to be a thrilling night of action and you can watch it all live with Bet365.

Copa America So Far
A memorable group phase has brought plenty of headlines and we were provided another last night as Lionel Messi became only the fifth Argentina player to reach 100 caps. The four time Ballon d’Or winner couldn’t cap the special night with a goal but Albiceleste did claim a 1-0 win over Jamaica to top Group B.
Meanwhile, Paraguay drew with Uruguay to finish second whilst the holders progress as one of the best third-placed teams and will face Chile in the last eight after the hosts topped Group A. They will be joined by Bolivia in the quarter-finals while Ecuador will need a miracle to scrape through as the second best third-placed teams.
We’ve seen plenty of drama already at this year’s event and the circumstances surrounding tonight’s games mean we should be in for plenty more. You wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.
Brazil V Venezuela Preview
The headlines ahead of this game will naturally be dominated by the absence of Brazil captain Neymar, who has been suspended for the rest of the tournament following his post-match idiocy against Colombia. However, this is a massive game for both nations as it will determine their respective fates.
Brazil’s defence does look a little suspect at times but will be confident as they take on a Venezuelan side that has only scored one goal in this competition so far. However, Noel Sanvicente’s underdogs can take confidence from their opening match heroics against Colombia as they look to reach the last eight.
Venezuela do boast some star quality, not least in key striker Rondon. The 25-year-old Zenit St Petersburg forward has already scored once in this competition and will be hoping to get the better of a vulnerable Jefferson between the Selecao sticks.
Nonetheless, even with their captain, Brazil do boast enough talent to get the better of Venezuela. Dunga’s men have relied heavily on Neymar in recent months but will have to cope without him now. This is a great chance to see how capable they are.

Brazil V Venezuela Betting Tips
Despite the absence of Neymar, Brazil remain heavy favourites to win Sunday’s crucial showdown and are priced 11/20 with Bet365. Meanwhile, Venezuela are available at 7/1 and the draw can be backed at 29/10.
The Selecao should find a way through to the last eight but it could be difficult without their captain. Fortunately for Dunga, his defensive qualities should keep Venezuela at bay.
Brazil now face an uphill battle if they are going to win this tournament but it would be madness to see them drop out at this stage. Nonetheless, the four games involving these two nations have only brought six goals so far whilst the last two head-to-head meetings ended 0-0. We can’t see that trend ending here.

It will be a tougher test than Brazil would have wanted and their main problem could be goals. However, we do expect them to win and think there is real value in Willian to score first.
The attacking midfielder started both previous games and could play a key role on Sunday night. However, it will be worth waiting for confirmed team news before placing a stake.
