BRZ vs VEN Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Brazil will be looking for their second successive win in the Copa America when they play Venezuela in Game-2 at the Group Stage in the Copa America 2019 at Fonte Nova Arena.
Group A: The host and the rests:
There was no shock in the opening game as Brazil cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win against Bolivia.
Two goals from Philippe Coutinho in the space of three minutes (50′ and 53′), with the first coming from the spot, allayed all the fears of a distinctly possible stalemate, while Everton Soares, a possible Manchester United target, produced a moment for the highlight reels, scoring an almost perfect finesse shot from the edge of the box in the 85th minute.
The other two teams in the group, Venezuela and Peru, played out a stalemate in the 2nd game.
The Copa America 2019 match will be played between Brazil and Venezuela at Fonte Nova Arena, in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The ground has a capacity of 50,000. The game will start at 06:00 AM (IST), on Wednesday, June 19.
Football fans in India will be disappointed as CONMEBOL Copa America Brasil 2019 failed to land a broadcast partner for the sub-continent.
However, CONMEBOL has launched an official mobile application of the tournament, which offers all the information of the tournament at one place. The application is available on Google Play Store and Apple's App Store.

Brazil Team News:
Neymar will play no part in the competition after the PSG star suffered an ankle ligament injury during a warm-up game. Tite named Willian as his replacement for the tournament.
Barcelona midfielder Arthur sat out the opener with a knee injury he suffered against Honduras. But according to reports, the 22-year-old has returned to the training ground and is available for selection for the next game.
According to reports, Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson will not be considered as he has a calf injury.
While the team news remains the same from the last game, with no fresh injury concerns.
Eder Militao is back fit after complaining of some pain in his hip before the last game. The 21-year-old Port wing-back left the training ground and missed the opener. He will be considered for the game.
Possible ins or outs of this game:
Arthur was pictured training with the group which will likely be the playing 11, while Fernandinho trained with the substitutes. Expect the Barcelona midfielder to start the game ahead of City's star midfielder.
Militao will definitely give competition to Filipe Luis, but we back the Atletico Madrid defender to start the match.
While Roberto Firmino should start up front ahead of Gabriel Jesus.
Brazil Probable XI: Alisson (GK), Alves, Marquinhos, Silva, Luis, Casemiro, Arthur / Fernandinho, Richarlison, Coutinho, Neres, Jesus / Firmino
Venezuela Team News:
Luis Del Pino Mago was sent off for two bookable offences in the 75th minute. The 24-year-old, who was deployed at left-back but can also play as a midfielder, will thus be serving a one-game ban here.
Possible ins or outs of this game:
Due to Mago's unavailability, a tactical change is expected here from the manager.
Roberto Rosales is a two-footed player and has played at left-back in the past. So he looks the likely option to fill in for the suspended Mago. In that case, Ronald Hernández will be coming into the side at right-back.
