This was supposed to be the tournament where Argentina looked back to their best and Lionel Messi would finally lift a trophy with his country. However, things haven’t gone to plan so far and once again Argentina look like a side who are very disjointed and cannot defend. Their 2-0 loss to Colombia in their first match of this campaign would have set the alarm bells ringing and then they put their Copa America place in jeopardy by only drawing with Paraguay. Luckily, a 2-0 win over Qatar in their final group match meant they progressed to the last eight and now they face a tricky tie against Venezuela.
Rafael Dudamel has put together a strong defensive unit for Venezuela’s tilt at the Copa America and we tipped them in our outright bets at 40/1. That defensive solidarity shone through in the group stage, with them keeping out Brazil in a 0-0 draw and also Peru. Their 3-1 win in their last group game ensured a second place finish and meeting with Lionel Messi in the last eight. La Vinotinto will fancy their chances of keeping this Argentina side at bay, even with Messi and Aguero expected to start in attack, but for our Venezuela vs Argentina betting tips, the selection is for the match to be a draw after 90 minutes. We are more than tempted to bet on Venezuela at odds of over 6/1, but a draw is probably the most sensible bet from the WDW market.

As is always the case when Argentina play, Lionel Messi is at the top of the betting odds for an anytime goalscorer. He’s Evens to score against Venezuela though and even though he hasn’t opened his account in Copa America 2019 yet, it is hard to ignore that price. Elsewhere, Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero did get a goal in their last match so he’s another one to consider at a very favourable 8/5 with Ladbrokes.
However, the money has to go on Messi here. He has so often been the hero for both club and county and it would be no surprise to see him dig Argentina out out the mud again in this one. With him also being on penalty and free kick duty, it is quite simply impossible to ignore Evens with Bet Victor, for Lionel Messi to score anytime.
