Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay expected to extend their winning streak

<div><h2>Brazil vs Venezuela</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank">Wednesday, June 19, at Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador)</a></p><p>No Neymar, no problem. Despite being kept to a goalless draw at half-time, Brazil imposed their rhythm from the start creating many opportunities of scoring in their Copa America opener beating Bolivia 3-0 with 2 goals from Barcelona’s Coutinho and 1 from Gremio’s striker Everton. They are huge favourites to lift the trophy this summer in front of their own fans. Samba Boys are in the driving seat to top of their group and easily qualify in the knock-out stages. A victory against Venezuela would put them through to the next round from the 1st place. Despite missing Neymar, Fabinho or Marcelo they are fully packed with world class players like Gabriel Jesus, Willian, Firmino, Arthur, Richarlison, David Neres and new Real Madrid signing Eder Militão, having an excellent balance between the lines, a rock-solid defence and a huge attacking firepower. Despite entering this tournament following a long and intense season with their clubs, they are in great shape and most important, they are scoring goals for fun trying to give their fans something to cheer for.</p><p><a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Brazil to win with -2 AH at 1.79 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p><h2>Colombia vs Qatar</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank">Wednesday, June 19, at Estádio do Morumbi (Sao Paulo)</a></p><p>Colombia and Qatar will meet on Wednesday for their second games in Copa America 2019. The hosts recorded a well-deserved 2-0 win against Messi and Co. last weekend showing great tactical awareness and being clinical in front of the net. They have now won four of their last five fixtures across all competitions and they enter this match as huge favourites to win and qualify in the knock-out stages. Qatar, who will make their World Cup debut as hosts, were invited to participate in this year's tournament along with Japan. They already pulled-off an upset coming from 2 goals down to keep Paraguay to a 2-2 draw producing a fine display. They are determined to extend their good run of form, but Colombia are not Paraguay. The hosts have a huge international experience, they enter this match on the back of a solid victory against Argentina and we expect them to have a deep run and why not to play Brazil in the final of the competition.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Colombia to win with -1.5 AH at 2.05 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p><h2>Uruguay vs Japan</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank">Thursday, June 20, at Arena do Grêmio (Porto Alegre)</a></p><p>Uruguay were superb last weekend beating Ecuador 4-0 in their tournament opener. They are in great form and they enter this match on the back of 4 consecutive wins scoring 14 goals and keeping 4 clean sheets in the process. They have a brilliant back 4 with Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez from Atletico Madrid, Martin Caceres from Juventus and Diego Laxalt from AC Milan. With Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus and Matias Vecino from Inter Milan in the middle and with the superstars Barcelona’s Luis Suarez and PSG’ Edinson Cavani in front, Uruguay are able to go all the way. They have a powerful squad across all the pitch and they fully motivated and always ready to give everything for their country. Japan are always a tough team to play against, they are always very organized, but their lack of quality and motivation will be the key to this match. La Celeste have all the necessary weapons to cover the -1.5 AH line which is priced at 1.6 but for a better value we will take them to win from Half-Time.</p><p><a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Uruguay to win HT/FT at 1.62 with WilliamHill</strong></em></a></p></div>
