We back under 2.5 goals in Tuesday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier in Caracas, between Venezuela and Uruguay.
- Venezuela have netted just three goals in their five qualifiers so far.
- Uruguay have drawn a blank in their last two qualifiers against Brazil (0-2) and Paraguay (0-0).
- Four of the last five meetings between the sides have produced under 2.5 goals.
Uruguay will see this week's match against Venezuela in Caracas as a good chance to liven up their qualifying campaign, but we believe La Celeste will have to settle for a draw in a dreary match at Estadio Olimpico de la UCV.
On paper, Uruguay is undoubtedly the superior of the two teams, and it's difficult to argue that they shouldn't be the favorites to win after losing four of their first five qualifiers.
Nonetheless, La Celeste has struggled in their last two matches, losing to Brazil (0-2) and Paraguay (0-2). (0-0). Oscar Tabarez's team appears to be too short at a slight underdog to deserve backing based on those performances.
Their recent offensive struggles, along with the fact that Venezuela has only scored three goals in five qualifiers, could result in a low-scoring match in Caracas on Tuesday.
Four of the last five meetings between the teams have resulted in under 2.5 goals, and we expect that trend to continue here, as well as a goalless stalemate. Six of the last 13 meetings have finished in a draw, and with the game back on home soil, Venezuela may be able to frustrate La Celeste once more.
