The international break features an exciting set of FIFA World Cup qualifiers this month as reigning Copa America champions Brazil take on a struggling Venezuela outfit at the Cicero Pompeu de Toledo Stadium. Brazil have an excellent squad and are the favourites to win this game.
Venezuela have lost both their matches so far in the qualification campaign and desperately need a victory this month. FIFA World Cup qualifiers among the CONMEBOL nations are often hotly contested and the Venezuelans will have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to stand a chance in this game.
Brazil, on the other hand, have made the perfect start to their FIFA World Cup qualification campaign and have won both their matches, scoring an astonishing nine goals in the process. Selecao have one of the most formidable squads in international football and thrashed Bolivia by a 5-0 margin last month to make a statement to the rest of South America.
