The men in yellow have won seven games on the bounce. There is no news of injury or doubts what so ever. Certainly, everyone is fit and available for selection for the starting line up. Neymar and Firmino are expected to lead the line, with Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus just behind the front two. Eder Militao and Marquinhos will provide durability at the back.

Alisson; Danilo, Militao, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Fred; Jesus, Firmino, Neymar, Richarlison
Peseiro likes a back 5 formation which he started in a game against Uruguay. Peseiro might do the same against Brazil this sunday because it paid off against Uruguay. Most importantly, Venezuela will lie upon defensive rigidity and counterattacking football. In other words, Venezuela will park the bus against Brazil and look for openings.

Graterol; Gonzalez, Ferraresi, Chancellor, Villanueva, Rosales; Savarino, Moreno, Rincon, Castillo; Martinez
Head to head:
