Colombia vs Venezuela Predictions


Colombia should keep improving under new manager Reinaldo Rueda. With Venezuela battling big problems off the pitch, I am backing La Tricolor to win to nil at Copa America.

  • Colombia have won to nil in 2 of their last 3 matches (all competitions).
  • Colombia have won to nil in 5 of their last 6 matches (Copa America).
  • Colombia have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 8 matches (Copa America).
  • Colombia have won 2 of their last 3 matches against Venezuela (all competitions).
  • Venezuela have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 matches against Colombia (all competitions).
  • Venezuela have lost 5 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Venezuela have failed to score in their last 2 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Colombia have an 18-6 advantage against Venezuela with 15 draws in 39 matches.

Colombia Form


Colombia are undefeated in 2021 with two wins and a draw in three games. Reinaldo Rueda replaced Carlos Queiroz as manager in January and is turning things around. 

Rueda guided La Tricolor to a 3-0 win in Peru in his first match in charge. They then 2-2 draw against Argentina, coming back from being 2-0 down after 8 minutes.

Colombia started Copa America with a 1-0 win against Ecuador. Edwin Cardona scored the winner just before half time.

Colombia Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: David Ospina, Camilo Vargas, Aldair Quintana
Defenders: Davinson Sánchez, Yerry Mina, Stefan Medina, Óscar Murillo, William Tesillo, Jhon Lucumí, Daniel Muñoz, Carlos Cuesta
Midfielders: Juan Cuadrado, Edwin Cardona, Wílmar Barrios, Mateus Uribe, , Gustavo Cuéllar, Sebastián Pérez, Yairo Moreno, Baldomero Perlaza
Forwards: Luis Muriel, Duván Zapata, Luis Díaz, Miguel Borja, Alfredo Morelos, Yimmi Chará, Rafael Santos Borré, Juan Ferney Otero, Jaminton Campaz

Jefferson Lerma, James Rodríguez and Radamel Falcao are all injured and were left out of the squad.

Left back Yairo Moreno picked up an injury against Ecuador and was replaced by William Tesillo. Centre back Óscar Murillo was taken off late and replaced by Davinson Sánchez who could start here.

Rafael Santos Borré and Miguel Borja started up front, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Atalanta duo Luis Muriel and Duván Zapata start against Venezuela. 

Venezuela Form


Venezuela lost their first three World Cup qualifiers without scoring a goal. They snapped the run with a 2-1 home win against Chile, Salomon Rondón scoring the winner in the 81st minute.

José Peseiro’s side lost 3-1 in Bolivia before a 0-0 draw against Uruguay. They scored just three goals in six World Cup qualifiers.

Venezuela started Copa America with a 3-0 defeat against Brazil.

Venezuela were hit by a COVID-19 outbreak a day before their match against Brazil. 

Eight players and four coaches tested positive with 15 new players joining the squad.

Salomón Rondón’s loss to injury was a big blow with the Dalian Professional striker scoring 31 goals in 82 internationals.
