LIVE: Brazil vs Venezuela

Venezuela travel to Sao Paulo in search of their first goal in qualifying, as Jose Peseiro’s side sit one spot ahead of last-place Ecuador having played a match less. A 3-0 loss to Colombia and a 1-0 defeat at home to Paraguay have made for a rocky start, and it doesn’t get easier as the Vinotinto have only beaten Brazil once in 13 attempts – a 2-0 win in a friendly in 2008.

Brazil return to CONMEBOL qualification in a rich vein of form, sitting just one point behind table-toppers Argentina, who have played a match more. With 12 goals scored in their last three fixtures, the Selecao attack has been unstoppable of late –  but Neymar’s late withdrawal from the squad due to injury will leave Tite without Brazil’s second highest all-time goalscorer.
