Venezuela vs Peru
Competition: Copa America
Date: 15 June 2019
Kick-off: 21:00 CET
There was a time when Venezuela’s national team were a… joke, a group against which all teams knew that they would have to do very little to earn all three points. Well, that time is over, and seems to be over for good. Today’s national team, has several players who were members of the U20 squad that reached the final of their World Cup two years ago, in South Korea. Back then, they lost 1-0 to England, going super close to be crowned World Champions. Rafael Dudamel, the coach, has managed to create a very competitive group, with some youngsters, and of course some much more experienced players, like Salomon Rondón, who scored two of their three goals a few days ago, in their last friendly game, against the United States. Are Venezuela favorites to… win the Copa América title this year? Definitely not. The fact though that they have already “promoted” several 2017 U20 team members, can only be a good thing for the near future. Against Peru, they are expected to start with Fariñez, Rosales, Chancellor, Villanueva, Del Pino, Herrera, Moreno, Savarino, Rincón, Murillo and Rondón.
The Peruvians look confident that their team is good enough to make it to the quarterfinals, at the very least, and then, it will come down to whom they’ll face there, to reach the last four. They look at the players they have available, and feel that with Paolo Guerrero back and hot (he did super well with Internacional these last months, after his return from suspension), they have a team capable of beating practically anyone. Pedro Gallese, Luis Advíncula, Carlos Zambrano, Miguel Araujo, Miguel Trauco, Yoshimar Yotún, Renato Tapia, Edison Flores, Christian Cueva, Jefferson Farfán (as number 10, in a very free role in midfield) and Paolo Guerrero, these should be the first 11, a lineup on which Ricardo Gareca decided for good just 48 hours before kickoff, having doubts until late.

Super-super interesting game between a team that dreams of being the biggest surprise of this competition, and a team that just welcomed their leader back (Guerrero), and feel they have what it takes to… make history in Brazil.
Venezuela vs Peru: Betting Tips
Peru are given a slight advantage to win the game, but I really like Venezuela’s chances of earning at least a draw. The Vinotinto’s win in “draw no bet” is at 2.08. Their double chance is not paying more than 1.53, but goes up to 2.45 if combined with “over 1.5”.Do you want daily and profitable Betting Tips?
