Unbeaten in six games across all international competitions: WWWWWW, Brazill will be coming into this fixture behind a 2-0 win over Paraguay on the 9th of June. Before that win, they had picked up another 2-0 win over Ecuador on the 5th of June. The string of victories leaves Brazil’s coach, Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, commonly referred to as Tite,



 confident of his side’s ability to pick up their first win of the tournament on Sunday when they take on Venezuela. Tite has been managing Brazil since June 2016 and has a 74%-win rate after 40W, 10D & 4L from 54 games in charge. The 60-year-old will have Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Danilo,



 and Éverton Ribeiro available for selection. Lucas Paquetá, Arthur, Madrid’s Casemiro and PSG’s Neymar are also included alongside Everton's Richarlison, and Vinícius Júnior of Los Blancos.

A 2-1 victory against Chile separates the recent results from defeats to Colombia (3-0), Paraguay (1-0) and Brazil (1-0). On Sunday, coach,



 José Peseiro will be hoping he can earn at least a draw and secure a point in the aim of advancing into the next stage from Group A which also consists of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. He has been coach of the Venezuelan national football team since February 2020 and has picked up 1W, 4D & 1L after six games in charge of La Vinotinto.
