Venezuela vs Colombia Match Preview
Venezuela has been a disaster throughout this qualifiers in which they have only earned 6 points after 14 games. The team coached by Rafael Dudamel is out of World Cup qualification contention, and against the ‘cafeteros’ his team will simply play for pride and experience.
Colombia has performed well thus far in what could potentially be the world’s most difficult qualifiers. The team coached by Jose Pekerman is currently in 2nd place with 24 points; only 1 more than 3rd placed Uruguay. Colombia is strongly favored to earn the 3 points this Thursday against the confederation’s weakest opponent which will allow them to get closer to a Russia 2018 berth.
