Following their 0-0 draw with Brazil, the Vinotinto have still yet to score or surrender an goal in this tournament, however have seen a stunning four goals against them discounted by VAR in two matches.

Bolivia have contended well in patches during their matches against Brazil and Peru yet at last have not been sufficient at either end of the pitch to keep away from defeat. The loss against Peru was their fifth consecutive defeat and they have not won a match since October 2018 – a sequence of nine games.

Venezuela

Prediction

Venezuela will improve in assault on the off chance that they are to enlist their first win of the tournament against Bolivia who are hoping to stop a kept running of seven continuous defeats in Copa America matches.There is plenty of incentive for Venezuela to win the game as they strive to reach the knockout stages and with three consecutive clean sheets in international matches, it seems that it may just take one goal to settle the encounter. Bolivia have faded during the second half of their matches and this could be when Venezuela strike the winning blow.
