Struggling Venezuela ideal opponents for weary travellers?

Venezuela are rock-bottom of South America’s World Cup qualification group, losing 11 of their 14 games to date and keeping just a single clean sheet. Jose Pekerman’s team have lost three qualification games on the spin, and have won just one of their last 14 competitive matches, a run which includes last summer’s group-stage Copa America exit, and began with a 3-1 loss in Bolivia 12 months ago.

Bolivia have always had an impressive home record, owing to the physical struggles faced by visiting teams in La Paz, over 11,000 feet above sea level. However, they have yet to win an away game in this qualification campaign, losing by three or more goals in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Peru.

However, the Bolivians did claim impressive score draws in Chile and Paraguay, and currently boast the continent’s most lethal marksman. Captain Marcelo Martins has scored eight goals in this campaign, including a double in the reverse fixture against Venezuela. He takes penalties and has also netted four of their five away goals in the group thus far.

Bolivian captain can trouble the scoreboard

The stark differences between Bolivia’s home and away form make this a difficult game to call, even considering Venezuela’s woeful record. However, Bolivia have netted 20 goals in their 14 qualifiers, the same amount as Argentina and more than any of Uruguay, Colombia, Chile, or Peru have managed, so they should expect to create chances against a weak backline.

With that in mind, back in-form Cruzeiro marksman Martins to find the back of the net at any time in the game. An entertaining score draw, meanwhile, could represent a decent correct score prediction, with 2-2 our tip.
