BRAZIL will have to manage without Neymar against Venezuela tonight and it's a massive blow to the samba stars who rely so much on the Barcelona star.

They are still regarded as hot favourites at 1-2 with William Hill and Ladbrokes to win but it's worth noting a draw will see them through to the last eight.

In Neymar's absence Hoffenheim striker Roberto Firmino, set for a move to Man United, looks a decent shout to score first at 5-1 with bet365 and yesterday I stuck up Liverpool's Phillipe Coutinho in a first-scorer Trixie at a best 11-1 with bet365.

Dunga’s men have needed a last-minute winner in their opener against Peru before losing 1-0 to Colombia and they haven't been at their best.

Venezuela battled to a 1-0 victory over Colombia in their curtain-raiser before going down to Peru 1-0. Noel Sanvincente’s side are difficult to break down and will try to frustrate a Brazilian side lacking their match-winner superstar.

Venezuela have lost just three of their last 13 Copa America meetings and have suffered just one defeat in their previous four meetings with Brazil. They look a decent shout +2 at Betway and that could be one for my treble.

In the other game Colombia can follow their win against Brazil with another when they face Peru. They are 11-20 at sportingbet and if he starts I'd try Jackson Martinez at 5-1 with Paddy Power to score first.
