Brazil vs Venezuela LIVE: Stream, TV channel, score, teams, kick-off time – World Cup 2022 qualifying latest – The Sun

BRAZIL take on Venezuela as they look to make it three wins out of three in World Cup qualifying.

The Selecao have banged in nine goals in wins at home to Bolivia and away to Peru.

Their opponents meanwhile have never qualified for a World Cup and lost their opening two matches to Colombia and Paraguay.

But the Vinotinto still have an exciting young squad that does tend to blow hot and cold and earned a 0-0 draw away to the Brazilians in the Copa America when the sides last met.

  • Unfortunately Brazil vs Venezuela isn't available to watch on our shores.

    GOOD EVENING

    Welcome to the live blog for Brazil vs Venezuela!

    We’ve got some more South American World Cup qualifying action tonight, and hopefully we’ll see more goals than we did last night.

    The hosts will be hoping for a more straightforward affair as they look to keep up their 100% perfect start to their World Cup qualifying campaign.

    Five-time world champions Brazil are favourites to book their place in the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar.

    Brazil’s biggest threat, Argentina, had to settle for a point last night when they failed to beat Paraguay.

    Argentina sit top of the ten-team group by one point, a win for Brazil tonight will see them go top with a two point advantage.

    Venezuela sit 9th after losing both of their first two fixtures.

    Brazil will be missing superstar Neymar after the winger picked up an injury in PSG’s Champions League clash against Basaksehir.

    Premier League trio Thiago Silva, Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus have all been selected and could play a role in tonight’s fixture.

    We will have the full team news shortly!
