These are our Colombia vs Venezuela predictions and tips:

Colombia to lead at half-time

We’ve been impressed by Venezuela’s recent run of results; they are currently on a seven-match unbeaten run, with five wins and two draws. However, the visitors have struggled against today’s opponents in recent years; they are without a win in their last seven clashes with Colombia, with three draws and four losses.

It may interest you to know that Colombia have been unstoppable these past few months; they have won three in a row, and are unbeaten in their last 11 games across all competitions. Furthermore, Nestor Lorenzo’s men opened the scoring in all of their last five matches, and had the lead at half-time in four of those games. Considering they tend to play well against Venezuela, we are fairly confident that Colombia will draw first blood, and lead at the midway point of this match.

One team to keep a clean sheet

We’ve already established that Colombia have no losses in the last seven skirmishes between these teams. It’s also important to note that they did not concede a single goal in their last four meetings with Venezuela. That said, meetings between these teams have mostly been one-sided when it comes to goals; as one team blanked in eight of their last nine encounters. Keeping in mind that this was the case with four of Colombia’s last six matches, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.

Less than three total goals

For our last Colombia vs Venezuela prediction, let’s explore the over/under goals market. These teams have met a fair few times, and most of those clashes have been on the low-scoring side. In fact, nine of the last 11 skirmishes between Colombia and Venezuela went below the 2.5 goal mark. Likewise, four of Colombia’s last six games featured less than three goals, all of Venezuela’s last three matches too. All things considered, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.

Colombia vs Venezuela match preview, analysis, and latest team news


Colombia are coming off an impressive 2-0 victory over Germany; that was their third consecutive win, and their 11th straight match without a loss. Nestor Lorenzo’s men will look to extend their winning streak to four matches as they host Venezuela on Friday.


Like today’s opponents, Venezuela have enjoyed some fine form recently; they won five of their last seven matches, with no losses in that seven-game stretch. This will be a tricky fixture for the visitors, as they take on an in-form Colombia. It’ll be interesting to see if they can keep their unbeaten run intact at the end of this match.

Colombia vs Venezuela head to head

Since November 2003, Colombia and Venezuela clashed on 16 occasions. The Colombians lead the head-to-head between these teams in that stretch, with six wins, five draws and five losses. It’s worth mentioning that recent meetings between these sides have been a bit one-sided, as Venezuela are without a win in their last seven encounters with Colombia.
