Betting tips – Colombia vs Venezuela – Copa America
Colombia vs Venezuela – After Mexico drew against Bolivia, Cavani’s Uruguay struggled in a 1-0 win against Jamaica and Messi’s Argentina only got a 2-2 draw against Paraguay, are we in for another surprise at the Copa America? All the facts lead us to think that this will be an easy victory for James Rodriguez’s and Radamel Falcao’s side, this being the bet that we propose for our free betting tips.
Colombia surprised everyone at the 2014 World Cup after reaching the quarter finals and being knocked out by the host after a well-fought match. The road so far for Colombia after the World Cup is also a remarkable one, as they have won all 7 games that they have played since then, sitting on the 4th spot of the FIFA Rankings. Jose Pekerman has at his disposal a squad with very talented players, who play for top European teams: goalkeeper Ospina (Arsenal), defenders Zuniga (Napoli), Zapata (Milan) and Murillo (Granada), midfielders James Rodriguez (Real Madrid), Juan Guillermo Cuadrado (Chelsea), Victor Ibarbo (AS Roma) and Carlos Sanchez ( Aston Villa) and atackers Radamel Falcao (Manchester United), Carlos Bacca (Sevilla) and Jackson Martinez (Porto). The only issue for Colombia’s coach is the fact that all of those players can’t play in the first 11 at the same time. Therefore Adrian Ramos, Guarin or Aguilar Quintero not being available will be a fact that goes unnoticed.
Colombia probable line-up (4-4-2): Ospina – Zuniga, Murillo, Zapata, Armero – Cuadrado, Valencia, C. Sanchez, J. Rodriguez – J. Martinez, R. Falcao
Venezuela never did anything remarkable at Copa America, even though they’ve played in 15 editions so far. Despite this, in the head-to-head meetings, Venezuela has the upper-hand with 3 victories, over just 1 victory for the Colombian side. In this game, the scenario that sees Venezuela winning is pretty unlikely given the fact that Colombia’s squad is far superior and they can not afford any mistakes at this point of the competition. One of the other teams in the group is Brazil and if they will not succeed in getting the win against Venezuela, Colombia may even risk to lose the second place. The most probable outcome of this group is Venezuela fighting against Peru for the third spot (which could possibly lead to qualification as well). The star of Venezuela is Jose Salomon Rondon who plays for Zenit St Petersburg, while the rest of the players are not so widely known, playing for medium teams around Europe or even in the domestic championship.
Venezuela probable line-up (4-4-2): Baroja – Rosales, Vizcarrondo, Amorebieta Cichero – Murillo, Rincon, Seijas Arango – Martinez, Rondon
