Stadium: Estadio Olímpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira (Goiânia)
In the second round of the Copa America, Colombia will face Venezuela. The last time the two teams crossed paths was in mid-October 2020 when Colombia defeated Venezuela 3-0.
Team Colombia: the first victory of the Cafeteros
In the first round of the Copa America 2021, the Colombian national team played against Ecuador and beat t with them with a score of 1-0. It should be noted that in the qualifying tournament for the 2022 World Cup, the Ecuadorians beat Colombia with a score of 6-1, so it was fundamental for the Cafeteros to beat the Ecuadorians. After the defeat by Ecuador, Colombia defeated Peru 3-0 and tied 2-2 with Argentina. Both of these matches Colombia played in June 2021. It should be noted that the playoffs of each group four out of five teams will advance to the next round. This suggests that it is important for these teams, especially those who won in the first round, not only to win but also to keep up their game as long as possible.
Team Venezuela: Group B outsider
The Venezuelan team played three official matches in June: two in World Cup qualifying and one in the first round of the Copa America. During this period, the Venezuelans never won, scoring only once, in an away game against Bolivia. After a 1-3 win against the Bolivians, the Venezuelan team lost against Uruguay at home. The Venezuelans began in the Copa America with a devastating defeat against the tournament hosts, the national team of Brazil with a score of 0-3.
