If you’re looking for Venezuela vs Peru Prediction & Betting Tips, you are at the right place. This is where you will find all the info about the Venezuela vs Peru match, necessary to make the right wagering choice. Apart from the game taking place at the Arena do Grêmio in Porto Alegre, here you can find all the other previews of Copa America matches.
The first thing we’ll discuss in this Venezuela vs Peru prediction is the squad of the team that’s officially the host in this match. Venezuela might not be the favorite to win the group, but they definitely have the players good enough to compete for the second spot. They seem pretty decent in all areas of the pitch, especially the final third.
The attack is where they have Salomon Rondon, a powerful striker who played for Newcastle last season in the Premier League. The attacker scored 11 goals over the course of 32 Premier League matches, which has attracted the attention of various top-rank clubs. And if he shows his talents at the Copa America, he can hope for a good offer from a big-name club.
Of course, Rondon isn’t the only player worth mentioning. Actually, the entire squad of Venezuela is pretty attacking-minded, which is why it’s not surprising that they’ve scored at least a goal in every single match they played since 2017. Unfortunately for their fans, they’ve also allowed many goals during that time.
Speaking of goals, duels between Venezuela and Peru have always been packed with excitements. In fact, only one match between the two ended without any goals. It happened 15 years ago, but in all the other games they played since the 1960s, there were at least some goals.
Same as Venezuela, Peru also seem pretty strong in all areas of the pitch. But, unlike Venezuela, they have proven their quality many times in a recent couple of years, with the culmination being getting to the World Cup 2018.
Another similarity they have with Venezuela is that their crucial player is also a big and powerful striker. We’re talking about their captain Paolo Guerrero. Although he’s already 35, he still has so much to offer. And considering that this is probably his last tournament, you can be sure he’s going to be extremely motivated to help his team advance to the later stages.
Another player to pay attention to is Jefferson Farfan, a forward currently playing for Lokomotiv Moscow, but who’s spent the most of his career in Schalke 04. He’s also in his mid-thirties, so Copa America 2019 is likely to be his last big tournament before retirement.
Apart from being very strong up front, Peru are also very good at the back, where they have some pretty good players, including Carlos Zambrano and Luis Advincula. They also have a pretty decent goalie. Although not very famous outside his native country, Pedro Gallese knows how to play big matches. In fact, this guy was crucial for Peru’s qualification for the World Cup 2018.
You can be sure he’ll play in the match against Venezuela. To see which other players will make it to the starting eleven, check out the possible lineups below before proceeding to Venezuela vs Peru betting tips.
Romo – Rosales, Chancellor, Osorio, Villanueva – Rincon, Seijas, Soteido, Murillo, Figuera – Rondon
