Brazil vs. Venezuela / Copa America – Unlike the first round when the two teams won both lost in the second. Probably both teams thought then that had made a great step towards the quarter-finals but the situation is in uncertain now for both of them and it is possible that just one of these teams will pass further. Brazil won easier opponent Peru but after many difficulties, while it lost to stronger one. On the other hand, after a surprising victory over Columbia, Venezuela lost to weaker Peru. The two teams played the last time four years ago at previous Copa America and then the match ended by surprising 0-0. We need to say that Venezuela didn’t score against Brazil in last four matches. Begins: 21.06.2015 – 23:30 CET

Brazil

Every series comes to an end and so Brazil was stopped after 11 consecutive victories, just like series without defeat that coach Dunga had since he took over the helm. Columbia was the one who stopped the series, the team to whom they didn’t loss in 24 years. It turned out that they were really lucky when they scored a goal in the first round against Peru in the last minute, as if they didn’t they would be now in a very unpleasant situation. Now, they decides alone about their destiny but it must be said that they are far from being brilliant and they let lot of nervousness to come on the surface, which caused to play this decisive match without their best player, Neymar.

He earned without any need a red card in the finish of match against Columbia and will surely not play in this one, and perhaps in the next one if they pass further. After victory over Peru, Dunga changed two players; T. Silva was stopper instead of David Luiz and Roberto Firmino played in the attack instead of Tardelli. It was obvious that many things didn’t work as they supposed to so now Couthino should play in the midfield and given that Neymar is absent there will be changes in the attack too.

Probable lineups Brazil: Jefferson – Dani Alves, T. Silva, David Luiz, Filipe Luis – Fernandinho, Fred – Willian, Coutinho, Douglas Costa – Roberto Firmino

Venezuela

After the first round it seemed that Venezuela is surly a quarter-finalist but after the second they seemed very far from that achievement. They can blame no one but themselves as they after a great victory over favoured Columbia lost in the second round by the very same 1-0 to Peru. If they have won one point everything would be much better but now they have to win a point in a match against Brazil and even if they succeed it is questionable would it be enough. If they win they would be in the quarter-finals for sure but how to win Brazil when they didn’t such thing for a very long time and when they are shaken after defeat in previous round.

They probably wouldn’t lose to Peru if left back Amorebita was not sent off after first half an hour so they had to play for full hour with players less. In fact, they resisted well for a quite long but in the end they failed. Coach Sanvicente had expectedly sent the same team as against Columbia, while now instead of Amorebieta will probably jump-in Cichero, which would be the only change.

Probable lineups Venezuele: Baroja – Rosales, Vizcarrondo, Tunez, Cichero – Rincon, Seijas – Vargas, Arango, Guerra – Rondon

Brazil – Venezuela PICK

The Brazilians didn’t shine in the first round and it was even worse in the second, when they lost. It is high time to finally play as they should and win, especially as qualification for the quarter-finals is in question. Venezuela can hardly parry them, especially after the defeat by Peru, and it will not be complete, just like Brazil.
