  • Competition: Copa America
  • Date: Thursday, 27th June, 2024
  • Kickoff: 02:00 UTC +1 / 03:00 CEST
  • Venue: SoFi Stadium (Inglewood, California, USA)

After both teams have won their first games at Copa America, Venezuela and Mexico will face off against each other in the second round at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Venezuela are #54 on FIFA's World Ranking list and 8th (out of ten teams) in the South American Region. They are a team that have never appeared in the World Cup but are a regular participant in the Copa America, appearing in the last 19 tournaments. In the last one, they finished the competition in the group phase without a win. So, considering they won their first match vs Ecuador (2:1), this tournament is already more successful than the last one. Still, we must mention they were lucky as Ecuador received an early red card in the 22nd minute. Before Copa America, Venezuela had an excellent start to the World Cup Qualifiers, as holding 4th place with nine points after six rounds. So, it is evident that Venezuela are on the rise.

Mexico are among the best national teams in both North and South American continents and are #15 in the FIFA World Ranking list. Still, they missed the last two Copa America tournaments because they declined to participate due to conflicting schedules between Copa America and CONCACAF's premier tournament - the Gold Cup. In the previous Gold Cup (last year), Mexico won the title and were good in the CONCACAF Nations League, where they were the runner-up after losing to USA 2:0 in the finals. Right now, the bookies see Mexico as the 5th-favorite for the Copa America title, behind Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Colombia.

Venezuela vs Mexico pick: Under 2.5 goals

Venezuela are a team that mostly plays low-scoring games. In the last 13 games in all competitions, they were under 2.5 goals on ten occasions. Also, they really struggle to score a goal and have scored one or zero goals in 11 of those 13 games. Additionally, in two matches (vs. Ecuador and Chile), when they scored over one goal, the opposing team received a red card, and that was the main reason behind their better offensive display than usual.

Despite being a slight favorite, Mexico are simply too inconsistent to bet on them to win. In their first game of the tournament, they won 1:0 against Jamaica while struggling with realization. Now, we expect them to struggle to score against Venezuela, which might opt for a pretty defensive formation. In the last 15 games in all competitions, Venezuela allowed more than one goal just once, and they faced good teams like Brazil, Colombia, Chile...

Considering all the above, we believe an under 2.5 goals bet should be the safest option for this Copa America game.

Mexico team news

In the first game vs Jamaica, the team's captain and one of their best players, Edson Alvarez, suffered an injury and had to leave the field after only 30 minutes. It is unclear whether he will be out for a long time. With him out, we might see Luis Romo in the starting lineup. After the game, coach Jamie Lozano spoke about the injury, saying they will do some testing in the upcoming days. "He's extremely important. He's a leader. He understands the game well. He's important on the pitch and in the locker room as well," the coach added about Alvarez.
