The South American giants got the better of Bolivia in their group opener and should do likewise against La Vinotinto

Copa America 2019 hosts Brazil will be looking to book a spot in the quarter-finals when they tackle Venezuela at Estadio Fonte Nova in Group A on Tuesday.

Tite’s charges had little trouble in dispatching Bolivia in their group opener, sealing a 3-0 win via strikes from Phillippe Coutinho and Everton.

This tie should not be much of a problem either, as Bet365 offers odds of (1.14) for the eight-time champions to coast to victory.

Brazil Venezuela PS

Rafael Dudamel’s side drew with Peru last time out and that’s a missed opportunity for maximum points. Winning in Salvador will be very difficult, evidenced by odds of (21.00) priced by the same bet firm.

A draw would be a massive result for Venezuela considering the wide gulf in class with Brazil, and it’s (7.00) to go that way.

The Selecao have the edge ahead of this match as they have won seven of their last 10 meetings with La Vinotinto, including the last three.

For a game the 2007 champions are set to dominate, it’s going to be truly rewarding for punters if Brazil can win at Halftime/Fulltime, quoted at (1.53) with Bet365.
