            Both Venezuela and Mexico started their Copa America campaigns with a win, but will be looking to grab another three points, not just to push for knock-out football but also to build some momentum after some shaky form prior to the tournament.

            Venezuela currently sit top of Group B after one game. The first game gave them a three point haul, leaving them equal with Mexico and three points above Ecuador and Jamaica.

            After exiting at the Group stage back in 2021, Venezuela will be looking to better that result and follow their success in 2016 and 2019, where Venezuela made it all the way to the Quarter-finals.

            Mexico sit just below Venezuela in second in Group B. In their one game so far, Mexico have picked up a win, but due to their goal difference, they find themselves behind Venezuela but three points above Ecuador and Jamaica.

            In their ten appearances so far in the Copa America, Mexico have made the Final twice and the Semi-finals on three occasions. However, more recently, Mexico have gone out at the Group stage twice and the Quarter-finals most recently.

            Venezuela and Mexico have met 20 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in the 1938 Central American and Caribbean Games. Mexico have the better record in the fixture with 14 wins in comparison to Venezuela’s two wins. In fact, a draw is more common in this fixture, happening on four occasions.

            The last five games in this fixture have seen three draws and two wins for Mexico. This fixture usually sees both sides on the scoresheet, with all five of their last five games have seen both sides finding the back of the net.

            Where to watch

            Venezuela vs Mexico will be shown on Premier Sports 1 in the U.K. but the game can also be followed online on Sky Sports or BBC Sport.
