Venezuela vs Peru: Stalemate may suit both sides

Kick-off: 2200, 27/06/2021

Stadium: Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha

TV: BBC Digital

Venezuela will be hoping Brazil beat Ecuador and then a point would be enough for them to qualify from Copa America Group B.

Those results would also suit Peru, with Los Incas almost certainly set for second place in this pool if drawing in Brasilia.

Events elsewhere could affect the dynamic of this contest but 15/8 for a stalemate makes sense for now and is our initial Venezuela vs Peru prediction.

A Look At Venezuela’s Betting Odds

Venezuela started out with a 3-0 loss to defending champions and hosts Brazil but have responded in a spirited manner.

La Vinotinto then held Colombia to a goalless stalemate before sharing the spoils with Ecuador in a 2-2 thriller.

Jose Peseiro’s side trailed twice in that last match but Edson Castillo’s powerful header and Ronald Hernandez’s first international goal in stoppage time earned them a crucial point.

Venezuela have had some issues with Covid-19 during this tournament but are clearly determined not to suffer an early exit.

They have only failed to make it through the group stage once in the past five renewals and can also take heart from a World Cup draw with Uruguay earlier this month.

Looking at the 14/5 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.

A Look At Peru’s Betting Odds

Peru also opened up with a heavy loss to Brazil, going down 4-0 in Rio de Janeiro.

However, they bounced back by beating Colombia 2-1, thanks to Netherlands-based Sergio Pena and a Yerry Mina own goal.

Los Incas then trailed Ecuador 2-0 at the break but rallied after the interval with strikes from Gianluca Lapadula and former Watford winger Andre Carrillo.

These teams have drawn their last three head-to-head meetings, including a couple of 2-2 crackers.

Let’s finish off our Venezuela vs Peru betting tips by taking 17/5 for both sides to score in another stalemate.
