Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a thrilling 5-0 win over Bolivia Brazil take on Venezuela at Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano de Merida on Wednesday. The Selecao hammered La Verde in front of home fans, but Tite’s men will have to be at their sharpest if they are to pick up all three points from their tenth group game. Neymar produced a fine display against Bolivia and the Barcelona superstar is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders in Wednesday’s football match. Venezuela are unlikely to book their place at the showpiece tournament in Russia and seeing that the rock-bottom team have little to play for in the upcoming qualifier, we predict that the visitors are going to record their fourth consecutive win in the process. You should bear in mind that Brazil recorded a routine 3-1 win over Venezuela in the reverse fixture, with Chelsea winger Willian scoring a brace for the Selecao back then.
