Looking at the in-form the current form of both teams, it is not hard to make a Brazil vs Venezuela prediction. Brazil are the defending champions of the Copa America and they are strong favorites to retain the crown this time around. Brazil face Venezuela in the opener of the event, the football fraternity has kept their eyes on it along with the Euros. Brazil went onto win the tournament in 2019 after beating Argentina in the semis and Peru in the final. There were not much threat to Brazil’s journey to victory last time as they eased through Peru 3-1 in the final. The Brazil squad, however, is not as strong as it was 2 years back but one cannot, by any means, write the team off when it comes to football.
Venezuela, on the other hand lost 2-0 to Argentina in 2019 and it would take them a performance of might to cause an upset in the opener. The tough is more daunting for Venezuela as Brazil have the advantage of playing at home, as the tournament was shifted from its initial venues, Argentina and Colombia. The match kicks off tomorrow, 14th June at 2:30 AM IST.

Brazil vs Venezuela Head To Head
Brazil vs Venezuela head to head has largely been an one-sided game. Brazil has registered 22 victories in the 27 times the two teams have come up against each other. Venezuela, who hela Uruguay to a 0-0 draw in a World Cup qualifier last week, have managed just two wins against the five time world champions.
The last meeting between the two sides was a year back and Brazil emerged as the winner after 90 minutes. It was Brazil’s Roberto Firmino who scored the only goal of the match. It is also to be noted that Venezuela have never won against Brazil in the Copa America which makes it even more tough for the former looking at the history books.
Brazil vs Venezuela Prediction
Brazil are on a 27 game unbeaten streak on home soil which is something to be admired. They are unbeaten in their last five games going into the competition and are likely to get the victory in their opener. Brazil’s talisman Neymar will be hungry to get his hands on the trophy after failing to win the Champions League with Paris Saint Germain desite back to back close runs in the same competition. The Selecao boasts of new budding talents Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Vinicius Junior and Roberto Firmino upfront to accompany Neymar in his quest to win the Copa America.
Venezuela does not have form on their side to upset the odds and are currently lying at the 9th spot in the South American World Cup Qualification table. They are only above Peru which is a matter of concern for head coach Jose Peseiro. In the two qualifiers last week, Venezuela managed a draw against Uruguay but conceded 3 goals to Bolivia, replying back with only 1. This match should not be hard one to predict for the football fans but in a game with such unpredictability, anything can happen.
Who will win Brazil vs Venezuela?
Irrespective of the stature of the match, football fans enjoy when Brazil takes the field. This time in the opener against Venezuela the fans would be hoping for a goal fest against a team that do not have much to offer in terms of quality and form. Keeping in mind the idea of starting on a winning note and the importance of the Copa America, the man at the helm, Tite, would be going with his best team.
Brazil are likely to win the match and this could turn out to be an embarassing night for Venezuela. Tite’s men with everything in their favour, starting from home advantage to form, are likely to win by a good margin.
PREDICTED SCORE LINE: Brazil 3-0 Venezuela.
