Brazil vs Venezuela Predictions
- Brazil have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven meetings with Venezuela
- Venezuela have lost both of their opening two World Cup qualifiers, failing to score in defeats against Colombia and Paraguay
- Brazil scored nine goals across their two October World Cup qualifying wins against Bolivia and Peru
Brazil can maintain their superiority
Brazil won their opening two World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru in October with the minimum of fuss and they should bring up the hat-trick of wins at home to Venezuela.
Brazil thumped Bolivia 5-0 and were equally as impressive in dismissing Peru 4-2, where talisman Neymar was on target with a hat-trick.
Tite has once again selected a strong squad, with Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho all included, and they should be too strong for visitors Venezuela.
While Brazil have brushed aside their opening two opponents and are blessed with an array of attacking talent, Venezuela have suffered two defeats and are lacking a threat in the final third.
The visitors failed to score in defeats against Colombia and Paraguay and they may struggle to breach a Brazil defence which has kept nine clean sheets in their last 12 World Cup qualifiers.
Brazil have also kept clean sheets in five of their last seven meetings with Venezuela and should repeat the trick armed with home advantage.
We predict a comfortable home win, with 2-0 the preferred scoreline. Venezuela lack quality but they are well-organised and can frustrate the hosts for large periods. It was 2-0 the last time Brazil got the better of Venezuela.
