Venezuela suffered a 3-0 defeat away to Uruguay on Friday, N. Lodiero’s 29th minute goal and E. Cavani’s Brace in the 46th and 79th minute were enough to keep Venezuela winless in the Campaign. They are 10th in the table with 2 points to their name and will need more than a miracle to grab a win against Brazil.
Brazil continued their winning streak as they bullied Bolivia 5-0 at home on Friday. They are currently 2nd in the table with 18 points, just a point below the leaders Uruguay. Brazil have lost just a game in the campaign so far, with 5 wins and 3 draws. They will be hoping for a win in this game to stand a chance of going top of the table should Uruguay slip.
