Venezuela vs Peru- Copa America : Venezuela, who is currently 29th on the FIFA rankings
Face off against the Peruvian national team, that occupies the 21st spot on those same rankings at the Arena do Grêmio in the city of Porto Alegre on the first round of the group A of the Copa America.
Venezuela, after failing to qualify for the World Cup in Russia, since they’ve finished in last place on the South American qualifiers with only 12 points conquered (thanks to a record of 2 victories, 6 draws and 10 losses in 18 matches).
Since then, they have played 12 friendly matches, with a record of 4 victories, 3 draws and 5 losses, having beaten the USA by 3-0 on the last preparation match prior to this Copa America.
Peru, unlike their opposition, were present on the final stage of the last World Cup, on a group that also had Denmark, France and Australia, and they didn’t go any further than the 3rd place, with 1 victory and 2 losses on the 3 matches played in Russian soil.
After participating in the World Cup, Peru has played 10 encounters, winning 3 of them, drawing 1 and losing the remaining 6 matches.
To prepare this Copa America, they have played 2 matches and they have beaten Costa Rica by 1-0 and then they have lost by 3-0 against Colombia.
Venezuela and Peru are on the group A of this competition, alongside Brazil and Bolivia, with the hosts being the clear favourites to advance and Venezuela and Peru being the teams with highest hopes of finishing in 2nd place.
That means this is a very important match for both of them, because a loss here could jeopardize the losers’ chances of advancing onto the next stage.
I should also mention that on the last 11 matches, Venezuela has always scored at least 1 goal, while on the other side, Peru, on their last 11 matches, only failed to score on 3 occasions.
