There are currently ‘five out of five’; Winning this year’s event will be ‘Six Six’ – as easy as it is to say, it is just as challenging on the field. However, as it is a home tournament, the five-time world champion team Brazil is the hot favorite in this year’s Copa America without any second word.
The Selecao have won five of the nine Copa Amrica titles they have won so far. Not only that, they had their last laugh in the five sessions organized at home. First in 1919 and last in 2019, between 1922, 1949 and 1969, Brazil became the champion team as the host team.
After a lot of drama and uncertainty, Brazil has been given the responsibility of hosting the Copa America 2021. At first it was supposed to be jointly in Argentina and Colombia. After Colombia and then Argentina withdrew, Brazil was chosen as the host by Copper’s regulatory body, Conmebol.
This year’s Copper event is starting tonight (Sunday) due to the protest of the players and the outbreak of coronavirus. In the meantime, the Brazilian High Court has also given the green signal. Brazil will go on a mission to make themselves ‘six six’ with a match Brazil vs Venezuela at 2.30 am India time.
There is no fear in the host team. However, 8 Venezuelan players and 3 coaching staff were infected with coronavirus on Saturday. However, there was no talk of postponing the game. Instead, the Venezuelan coach has called up 15 new players to replace that player.
Of course, Brazil has no reason to worry. Because of their own recent form or past statistics against Venezuela, everything speaks for Tito’s side. In 27 matches against Venezuela, Brazil has lost only twice and won 22 matches. They will play tonight with the aim of increasing the number of wins to 23.
The match will be played at the Garrincha stadium in Brasilia, Brazil. The game can be seen live on the screen of Sony Ten 2 and Sony Six from India. All Copa America matches can also be viewed online through Sony Live.
