Match in Focus

01:30 We 19Jun PREM

Brazil v Venezuela

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Brazil have conceded in only two of the last six meetings.
Expert verdict
Brazil are short-priced favourites to win the Copa America for a ninth time and topping Group A should be a formality for them based on the quality of opposition. Even without Neymar, Brazil have enough strength in depth to be a constant threat in attack, which was evident in their opening game against Bolivia with Philippe Coutinho bagging a brace in a routine 3-0 win.
