In this post betting tips and match preview of Colombia - Venezuela, the first match of the group C of this Copa America.
COLOMBIA - VENEZUELA
A lot of commentators think that Colombia is one of the favourite teams for the final win along with Brazil and Argentina.
The reasons are quite clear: Colombia is composed of several players who play in top european teams: James Rodriguez(Real Madrid), Carlos Bacca (Sevilla), Radamel Falcao(Man UTD), Jackson Martinez(Porto) and Juan Cuadrado(Chelsea).
The pleasant gamestyle of Colombia has been already appreciated in the last World Cup in Brazil.
Lot of people agree on the fact that this is the strongest colombian selection ever.
The only problem coach Pekerman has is how to find an equilibrium putting in the pitch all these attacking players.
The only limit of this squad is the defense, especially without Eder Balanta who is injured.
Venezuela is much weaker than Colombia.
Last friendlies showed several lacks (they lost also vs Jamaica and Honduras).
There are a lot of over 30 years old players and all the hopes are in Salomon Rondon (20 goals in 44 appearances in this season with Zenit St Petersburg).
In our opinion Colombia will have easily the best.
COLOMBIA: Ospina; Zuniga, Zapata, Murillo, Armero; Sanchez, Valencia; Cuadrado, Rodríguez; Martinez, Falcao.
VENEZUELA: Hernandez; Rosales, Vizcarrondo, Amorebieta, Cichero; Rincon, Lucena; Guerra, Arango, Seijas; Rondon.
