Venezuela and Argentina will face each other on Friday in the quarterfinal of the Copa America. Venezuela have reached the quarterfinals having finished second in Group A, behind Brazil, while Argentina finished second in Group B, behind Columbia.
In the group stage, Venezuela defeated Bolivia 1 – 3 after goalless draws with both Peru and Brazil. Argentina saw off Qatar 0 – 2 in their last match after drawing 1 – 1 with Paraguay and losing 0 – 2 to Colombia. At present Venezuela are ranked thirty-three in the world while Argentina are eleventh in the world.
The teams last two meetings have both ended in draws, 1 – 1 in September 2017 and 2 – 2 in September 2016. However, since 2007, Argentina has defeated Venezuela five times while Venezuela has won just one of their eight meetings. The match is sure to be a true battle, and Venezuela are certainly capable of causing Argentina some problems. However, Argentina are the bookies favourites to win.
