I can see only two results here, a win for Venezuela, or a draw, therefore a strong bet for the host nation, with the level ball option.
They were very nervous in their opener, a 2-2 draw with Bolivia. Having built towards this tournament for 7 years, the occasion seemed to "get" to them. Venezuela have stated that this is all behind them now and that we will see a more relaxed performance this evening.
The home team will be boosted by the fact that they have won the last two World Cup meetings here with Peru, by a wide margin (3-0 & 4-1) and with Uruguay as their final group opponents, will be looking for the win.
Peru know that with 3 points already in the bag and Bolivia still to play, that they are not dependent on a result tonight, to progress in the tournament.
5 points Venezuela level ball 1.74 asian line.
