Venezuela suffered a huge blow after a long list of key players were ruled out due to a coronavirus outbreak in the camp at the beginning of the tournament. The absentees include talismanic forward Josef Martinez and important defenders Mikel Villanueva and Roberto Rosales. In their absence, Fernando Aristeguieta has led the line. While Adrian Martinez, Jose Velazquez and Luis Mago could again line up at the heart of a back five.
Venezuela possible starting lineup:
Farinez; Gonzalez, Mago, A Martinez, Velazquez, Cumana; J Martinez, Moreno, Castillo, Casseres; Aristeguieta
Gianluca Lapadula will lead the line again on Monday. Peru will rely heavily on winger Christian Cueva’s experience going forward. Gareca opted to omit both Raul Ruidiaz and record scorer Paolo Guerrero from his Copa America squad.
