Wednesday evening at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood California will see Venezuela battle it out against Mexico. In their most recent encounters since 2010, these two combatants have faced each other six times. They have split the points on three occasions while El Tri have won twice and Venezuela has one lone victory. In the FIFA rankings, Mexico currently sits 15th overall while Venezuela is sitting in the 54th spot.

Venezuela is coming off a dramatic 2-1 victory over Ecuador stunning one of the group favourites to advance into the next round. After conceding the first goal of the match in the 40th minute, Venezuela answered back massively in the second half. La Vinotinto saw goals from Jhonder Cadiz in the 64th minute and to help ensure all three points for Venezuela saw Eduard Bello find the back of the net at the 74th-minute mark giving them their first win in a Copa America tournament since 2019.

Meanwhile for Mexico, despite all the turmoil on and off the pitch, they opened the tournament with a positive. El Tri defeated a pesky Jamaica side 1-0 in Houston on Saturday night. Monterrey fullback Gerardo Arteaga broke the deadlock in the 69th minute. His left-footed shot from outside the box found the corner to help contribute to Mexico's unbeaten start.

Venezuela vs. Mexico Betting Prediction

Venezuela Preview

La Vinotinto pulled off the first upset of the tournament achieving a 2-1 victory over Ecuador. Venezuela has performed well of late in non friendlies matches that has seen the country's rising stock continue to soar. Currently, in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying juncture, Venezuela sits in fourth place only suffering one defeat in six qualifier encounters.

Mazatlán's own Eduard Bello made an impact by coming on as a second-half substitute. The 28-year-old winger bagged his second goal ever for his country in his 14th international cap. In 45 minutes of play, Bello registered one shot at the target and was perfect with his passing as he went 11-for-11.

Mexico Preview

El Tri entered this contest with a lot of unknowns and a downward cycle in Mexican soccer we haven’t seen in quite some time. The once ultimate kings of CONCACAF have been brought back down to earth in recent times with noise within the federation hampering the mood around the team that has plagued them in the last couple of years.

Though Mexico prevailed in their opening match they suffered a huge blow to their title hopes. In the 30th minute, El Tri elite midfielder Edson Alvarez left the match in tears as he was forced off due to injury. The Captain's timetable to return is questionable. If Alvarez were to miss any time it would leave a hole in the middle of the pitch with his 80 international caps of experience will be dearly missed.

Venezuela vs. Mexico - My Pick

Each side is going to battle it out for first place in Group B, with the winner punching their ticket to the knockout phase. It’s a match both teams can’t afford to lose despite both possessing three points in their pocket. We could see both teams taking fewer risks at each end avoiding giving up a golden opportunity. Venezuela is trending in the right direction and smells a bit of blood after seeing Jamaica giving Mexico difficulties on the pitch. Think La Vinotinto can hang with Mexico and snatch at least a draw with them which returns our wager.
