Brazil – Venezuela, Copa America Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BRAZIL - VENEZUELA
Brazilians had some difficulties in the first half, but managed to overcome Bolivia after a penalty and then Selesao showed their class. Now with one win they will go through the group and this is the goal of the team. Brazilian players did not show any signs of fatigue, stress or anything else worrying that could worry fans. They are ready to win the cup.
Venezuela had a lot of trouble with Peru as they were close to the victory in many moments, but they were pretty close to the loss, too, so now everything is 50:50 after the first matches. Venezuela is playing more aggressively, so we can see various attempts to stop Brazilian technicians. The strength of Venezuela can come from the team’s physics.
We expect this not to be a walk in the park for Brazil. Of course, it is most logical for them to win, but in no case would we count on a big defeat. Selesao’s defense seems to be difficult to concede goals in this tournament, too. On the other hand Venezuela will probably be quite defensive until it gets in the game to be able to eventually benefit from a set piece or counter-attack, but overall we don’t expect many goals. Maybe difficult victory for Brazil. Prediction – Under 3.5 goals at 1.59.
7 of the last 9 matches of Venezuela ended with less than 3.5 goals
Brazil has 12 clean sheets in the last 15 games
