Venezuela will take on Canada in the Copa America 2024 quarter-finals on Friday. Both sides had contrasting runs in the group stages but have reached the knockouts.

Canada lost in their opening game against Argentina but bounced back to beat Peru 1-0. They were then held to a goalless draw against Chile. They finished second in Group A with four points, five behind leaders Argentina.

Venezuela, meanwhile, had a perfect run in the group stage, beating Ecuador 2-1, Mexico 1-0 and Jamaica 3-0. They topped the group with nine points, five more than second-placed Ecuador.

Venezuela have looked in a much better touch in the competition so far and looks like the favorites coming into the match. However, Canada were arguably in a tougher group and still managed to reach the quarter-finals, which would be a big boost for them.

Salomon Rondon has led the line really well for Venezuela at Copa America 2024 so far. He provided an assist against Ecuador and scored a goal each against Mexico and Jamaica. He has been in excellent form and La Vinotinto will again look at him against Canada.

The former Everton man has scored 43 goals and provided six assists in 108 games for Venezuela. He currently plies his trade for Mexican club Pachuca, where he registered 19 goals and three assists in 28 games last season.

Canada – Jonathan David

While he hasn’t had the best of tournaments so far, Canada will hope Jonathan David steps up in the crucial quarter-final clash. He has scored just one goal at Copa America 2024, which came in a 1-0 win over Peru.

David has scored 27 goals and provided 16 assists in 51 games for Canada and will be keen to add to his tally. He had a good season with Lille, where he registered 26 goals and nine assists in 47 games across competitions.

David has been linked with multiple clubs this summer and will be keen to raise his stocks at Copa America 2024.

Venezuela vs Canada Prediction

Both sides have shown some promise but Venezuela have certainly been the better team. They have performed well in all of their three games and look like the favorites to reach the semi-finals.

However, Canada have also edged out results and shown fight in their three games, which is impressive considering they are a new team under a new manager. It is expected to be a tight match but Venezuela’s experience should help them reach the semi-finals.

Predicted Score: Venezuela 2-1 Canada
